Strengthening of the research and research results management system
The System Project “Strengthening of the research and research results management system” is being implemented under the Innovative Economy Operational Programme 2007 – 2013. The project was launched in September 2009. It will provide expert support for Poland’s research and research results management system and improve management efficiency. The project will ensure that the R&D financing system is better correlated with the needs and potential of the Polish economy. It will provide the tools required to address the specific needs for cooperation between science and the economy. These needs will be met through support for projects involving economy-oriented R&D, industrial property protection and measures allowing practical application of research results.
The key result of the project will be the development of a resource in the form of external expert knowledge (including knowledge of foreign experts). This resource will have a horizontal aspect, i.e. will be useful also outside the project framework, e.g. in shaping the national science, technology and innovativeness policies implemented by the Minister of Science and Higher Education.
The Ministry of Regional Development is the System Project Managing Authority. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education is the Project Beneficiary and Intermediate Body.
