how much is Poland expected to get for the 2014-20 time period?
It is expected to be 80 Billion Euros
With Europe split in two between those who wants budget cuts and those who oppose them (poorer nations)
I read that it was countries like France and germany that didn't want to give so much this time.

And has Poland bin given all the funds allocated to her up until now?
Most of it, yes.
In one article I read that of all the money meant for Poland during the first year in which Poland received them (2007) only some 14% or so was given! Because the necessary changes weren't done in time to receive them. In the following year Poland already received some 40% of the funds assigned to her. Does the money from the previous years which are not used up roll over into the next year or is it lost?
I never heard that.
Post a link and I'll take a look.
The amount of European input in the implementation of National Strategic Reference Framework between 2007-2013 is 67.3 billion EUR which makes Poland the biggest beneficiary of the European Funds.
A good example is the 5.5bn euros earmarked for rail infrastructure investment, of which only 303m was used. This may be due to mismanagement, corruption or downright fecklessness, but it will make it very hard for the "new ascension" states to defend their access to almost 15 billion euros of structural funds if they simply can't spend it.
I know very little about Poland's railways,
Good man delphiandomine, have you a link to read about Polish railways?
