We derive and then estimate an augmented growth model to identify major shallow determinants of development of Polish regions at NUTS-2 level of spatial disaggregation. Of particular interest to us is an attempt to assess the impact of investment in transport infrastructure and investment in human capital related to a large influx of Structural Funds after the accession in 2004 to European Union. We utilize various panel data techniques in order to reach the major conclusion. Most of results are in line with theoretical predictions. The obtained results are however sensitive to the introduction of spatial effects and their particular specifications. At regional level agglomeration effects are clear with metropolitan status of a region playing a significant role in development. Polycentric core-periphery model seems to suit the Polish framework conditions.
