The majority of Portuguese companies expect to increase their investment and apply for European funding in 2022.

According to the FI Group, 97% of companies intend to make investments next year, and in the coming years, with development and innovation, productive investment and digitalisation the main areas.
An FI Group survey (the international consultancy company which helps manage European public investment programmes) shows that European funds will continue to play a crucial role in Portuguese company investment in the coming years.
The survey quizzed 104 companies all over the country, with the aim of ascertaining their opinions and perspectives on the Portugal Partnership Agreement 2030 and their expectations on the Resilience and Recovery Plan, and the results are clear: the vast majority of companies (97%) intend to make investments drawing on European funds in the next two to three years.
Looking at the various investment areas, development and innovation accounts for 14.9%, productive investment (14.6%), and digitalisation (14.6%), which are aligned with Portugal’s goals defamed for within the European funding framework for the next few years.
Moreover, the FI Group survey revealed a strong opportunity to facilitate the arrival of European finds to Portuguese companies: around 47% of those surveyed revealed that they had never sought an support in terms of European funds.
