„The biggest challenge for Poland is today not to develop any projects which will be financed with billions of Euros from European Structural Funds, but to establish a right proportion between investments in the infrastructure, what is called in Europe „investing in concrete”, and investments in innovation. […] Many politicians think that investing in innovation is something for the richest only. But it is not truth – it is mainly for the poorest ones”.
