Abstract: Motivation: Credit for technological innovations is implemented under competition projects in Submeasure 3.2.2 of Innovation support for enterprises of Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014–2020. It is a follow-up to the measure implemented under the Innovative Economy pro-gramme. The support granted in the form of so-called ‘technology bonus’ allows to partially repay a credit for technological innovations granted by a commercial bank. It is an instrument of financial support aimed at increas-ing the innovativeness and competitiveness of micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME). The innovativeness of Polish MSME is at a very low level, compared to other EU countries., Therefore, it seems necessary to implement various instruments of support and stimulation of investment in innovative technologies. Aim: assessment of credit procedures and possibili-ties of financial support MSME activity from a credit for technological in-novations. To do this, an analysis is needed of the procedure and funding rules for technological investments with POIR resources. Besides, the litera-ture of the subjects as well as the most important findings and statistics have been reviewed and evaluated. Results: presentation of the specificity of the credit in the case of technological innovations, including the obtain-ment of a technology bonus, assessment of the innovative activity of MSME, as well as the state of financing innovations and technological in-vestments of MSME, including indication of limitations in this respect.
