Question for written answer P-004663-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Julia Pitera (PPE)

 Subject:  Innovative Economy Operational Programme
 Answer in writing 

A company in Poland currently classified as an SME (small or medium-sized enterprise) has received funding from the Polish Enterprise Development Agency under Action 4.4 of Poland’s Innovative Economy Operational Programme (‘New investments with high innovative potential’). The programme is financed using public funds — both national (the state budget) and European (European Regional Development Fund) — and from private funds.

The programme is currently in the implementation phase. The company in question is planning to make changes to its ownership structure by bringing in a new shareholder, who would own between 50% and 100% of the shares. The company will therefore become a large enterprise and can no longer be counted as an SME, given that 50%-100% of its shares will be owned by a large international economic entity.

In that context, will the company have to return part or all of the funding it has received as part of the operational programme?
