As the county leader admitted, R&D activities are expensive and high-risk, so not all companies can afford them. However, to succeed, you must offer innovative products and services and compete with quality. This is what research work is needed for. “I hope that funding from the regional program will stimulate Podlaskie companies to take such actions,” said Artur Kosicki.
Grants will be available, among others: for industrial R&D work, as well as for the development of enterprise R&D infrastructure (such as devices or equipment), which will be used to conduct work to create innovative products and services. The results of the competition are due in July this year.
This is another measure to increase innovation of Podlasie companies. At the end of 2023, the provincial government transferred PLN 16 million from European funds for vouchers for companies, which will be distributed by business environment institutions.
This concerns the Podlasie Regional Development Foundation and the Regional Development Agency “Ares”, which will each receive approximately PLN 8 million to distribute to companies from the micro, small and medium enterprises sector (SME sector). One company will receive a voucher with a maximum value of PLN 150,000. Zloty. The funds can be used, among other things, to: purchase research services (patents, know-how licenses, development research) or develop prototypes.

Echo Richards embodies a personality that is a delightful contradiction: a humble musicaholic who never brags about her expansive knowledge of both classic and contemporary tunes. Infuriatingly modest, one would never know from a mere conversation how deeply entrenched she is in the world of music.

Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn’t about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life’s poignant moments.
