4 5 The definition of Innovation in OP IE INNOVATION stands for implementation of modern elements into economical practice: a new or a significantly improved solution regarding the product (a good or service), a process, marketing or organization. Innovative solution may be a result of company s own research and development activity, co-operation with other companies and institutions or may be the result of purchase of knowledge in a non-material or a material form. An innovative company or entrepreneurship is such a company, in which within a given period of observation an innovation process has been performed. In accordance with the above directive, a company should not be considered innovative if it is in possession of highly developed technology and sells it to other companies but id does not take any steps aiming at the development of such technology. The support planned within OP IE will be given disregardful of a sector or the industry branch which it is subject to (with all of the limitations that stem from the ERDF scope of intervention as well as regulations connected to public health). Within OP IE local and regional innovations will not be supported. These types of innovations will be promoted and supported in Regional Operational Programmes and within Operational Programme Development of Eastern Poland.
