July 7, 2017

The EU funds have constituted a major part in the investment budget of the City of Warsaw over the recent 10 years.

Owing to the European funding, the City of Warsaw has increased its pace of social and economic development in the last decade.

Among the most significant EU-funded investments, there is:

  • general upgrade of the public transport system (including major construction of the entire 2nd Metro Line and the new tramways and electric buses),
  • new roads,
  • highly complex water and waste-water management system,
  • as well as many social undertakings.

Presentation of the ESIF deployment effects in the City of Warsaw based on EPSEC’s research took place in July 2017.

Further research shall focus on the ESIF effects on other Poland’s territories.
