The Wielkopolska Region is one of the most economically developed Regions in Poland. It is characterized by a high concentration of engaged foreign capital and high investment outlays per capita. The economic situation of the region is a consequence of balanced development with a significant degree of industrialization and a high technological level. High potential of local human capital, good transport connections, extensive business environment and traditions of industrial and commercial culture are factors conducive to rapid economic development.
An important role in the dynamic development of the Region and the increase in its economic competitiveness is played by science, which, together with business and local governments, transforms Wielkopolska into an innovative region, developing its economy based on knowledge. Wielkopolska develops advanced technologies, e.g. in the areas of IT, automotive industry and highly specialized services. There have also been proposals for new pillars of the region's development based on renewable energy sources and the use of hydrogen. The challenges resulting from climate change, as well as their economic and social consequences, lie at the basis of the currently implemented processes of restructuring the economic potential of the region. The Wielkopolska Region focuses on electromobility, greater independence from coal than before, with the simultaneous rational use of available other energy sources.
