The National Center for Research and Development is the largest funding centre for research and development in Central and Eastern Europe. The main objective of this Center is to support the competitiveness of the Polish economy through the implementation of scientific research results on the commercial market.
The National Centre for Research and Development together with NCBR+ combine the best features of a corporation and a government agency. Their working tools, safety systems or benefits do not differ from those found in commercial entities. However, they also benefit from their status as a public entity.
