Intelligent Region Management = Intelligent Absorption of EU funds


  • Cornelius Pylak

    () (Department of Economics and Management of Economy, Lublin University of Technology)


Effective institutions and public administration is a key factor in designing and implementing the growth policy and the economic and social development. Effective institutional and administrative potential is also vital for good region management. Organisation of the system influences deeply the efficiency and effectiveness of the structural aid and simultaneously the level and quality of resources used, what has huge impact on the development and competitiveness of Polish less developed regions. The paper presents the model of EU structural funds implementing, which would help to transpose Polish less-developed regions (their administration) into intelligent regions – implementing European Funds in a pro-developmental way (not pro-social), focusing on strategic synergy projects realisation based on proper timetable, adjusted to specific regional factors (enhancing regional investment attractiveness), enabling individual approach to major developmental projects (increasing their effectiveness) and absorbing less financial sources on good purposes (not more – on bad purposes)
