Abstract: Motivation: Poland benefited from cohesion funds in 2007–2013 and gained more than 67 bln EUR from the European budget. The criteria of the distribution of these funds were multifaceted, because of the occurrence of many different target groups and fragmentation of instruments. Aim: The main aim of the article was to determine factors, which had the strongest impact on the absorption of European funds on district level in Poland. Two assumptions were made: (1) absorption level rises along with a higher level of district development (competitiveness channel) and with significantly lower level of development (cohesion channel); (2) the proper information policy as well as the ability to fit European funds support into organisation strategy played a key role for the level of absorption. Materials and methods: Spatial econometrics was used in the article. The usage of spatial relations facilitated the creation of a better fitted model. Results: The statistically significant impact of both channels (competitiveness and cohesion channels) was noted. The results from the model suggest that the competitiveness of the regions had more impact on absorption than a low level of development.
