Summary/Abstract: A research question that has not been satisfactorily answered in the relevant literature is what are the reasons for low efficacy of EU-funded public support programs dedicated to increasing innovativeness of Polish enterprises. The aim of the study undertaken by the team of researchers at the Institute of Economics of the Polish Academy of Sciences is to establish interrelationships between the current stage of development of the Polish economy and determinants of its innovative capacity in the context of absorption of EU structural funds. It is hypothesized that the current stage of transition between investment- -driven and innovation-driven economy defines the main supply-side and demand-side determinants of innovation processes that condition efficiency of EU structural funds’ support. Individual chapters present a number of detailed hypotheses that are then verified on the basis of empirical data derived from questionnaires, interviews and a model of the level of economic development and innovativeness of the country. The study presents a number of recommendations for economic policy.
