The decision to grant® the status of Research and Development Centre was made by the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology. The companies that have obtained the status provide scientific support on a commercial basis to other business entities on the market in terms of implementing innovativeness, inventions and new, improved products, as well as increase the chances of obtaining grants from various types of funds.
At present, 37 companies have R&DC status in Poland (as of June 5, 2019). R&DC research services are mainly used by companies and institutions (including public institutions), that create new solutions and improve products, seek for a market niche, strive to improve their position on the market or increase the attractiveness of their offer. The collaboration with R&DC allows, among others, for effective use of EU funds or grants from the National Centre for Research and Development.
