EU subsidies

Enterprises in Poland can use many options of external financing supporting R&D and investment projects.

Home > Innovation > EU subsidies

In order to get the subsidy, it is necessary to know the criteria of numerous competitions and to prepare appropriate documents. Submitting an application is only the first stage of the process of receiving a subsidy. 


Obtaining a subsidy is a long process which includes project identification, analysis of supporting financial instruments, preparing complete documentation and submitting an application to an appropriate institution. The final stage is the settlement of the funds received. By taking different sources of financing and all the formal and legal aspects of project implementation into account, Ayming individually matches appropriate aid schemes with the customers’ strategy. Ayming’s service covers the whole process related to granting subsidies, from selection of financing to project settlement and trainings.
