Polish business and scientific community in Brussels

About us

Welcome to Business & Science Poland. We are an employers’ association bringing together the experience of the Polish companies and research institutes and the European Union’s agenda. At BSP, we are committed to reinforcing the values of the EU Common Market acknowledging simultaneously the need to transform it responsibly and effectively.

Our mission is to provide our members and partners with professional tools to influence the EU legislative environment and build effective coalitions, which would support the interests of the Polish industry and science.

The EU’s internal market is one of the most regulated economic areas in the world. 80 directives, 1,200 regulations and 700 decisions are adopted on average each year by the EU institutions and Member States. Around 70% of all legal regulations in force in Poland had been negotiated in Brussels prior to their implementation.

Polish companies and research institutes compete with their partners from other EU Member States in the EU common market, successfully using the same tools and solutions as their peers. However, the impact of a given economic or scientific organization on the EU’s legislative process is still largely correlated with the time and resources allocated to the activities in Brussels. Bar the operational and financial aspects, one of the key competitive advantages to address when operating on the Internal Market is the capacity to deal with regulatory risks. Permanent, active and visible presence in unions, associations and organizations in Brussels provides a significant advantage in this respect.

Polish lobbyists represent only 2% of all the lobbyists in the EU. Meanwhile, Belgian professional campaigners account for 16.7% and German – 15.1%. These numbers were the underlying reason for the establishment of BSP – an association working tirelessly towards increasing the presence of Polish entities in debates and negotiations of the EU regulations.

Negotiating European regulations takes, on average, several years. It is a time filled with continuous meetings, debates, consultations and information campaigns. The process includes public and closed events held on various levels and attended by numerous national and EU officials, politicians, academics, experts, opinion leaders, journalists, representatives of various organizations and social groups. We are in Brussels to connect this setup with the voice of the Polish business and science.
