Swietokrzyskie Innovation System - Connecting innovation across the United States and Poland
Logo of Poland-U.S. Innovation Program

PLUS IP (Poland-U.S. Innovation Program) is a public-private partnership that brings the nexus of government, business, and academia to advance innovation through joint venture and joint research and development projects between the United States and Poland. The two countries are sharing best practices and expertise to replicate successful U.S. innovation models such as the Research Triangle and Silicon Valley in Poland. This effort provides opportunities for joint projects between U.S. and Polish companies and organizations aimed at promoting access to capital, more rapid and effective commercialization of technology, strengthening and expanding regional innovation clusters, improving collaboration in key economic sectors (i.e., defense, energy, health, and science and technology), and fostering the innovation ecosystem.

In this way we hope to expand entrepreneurial and business ties between our two countries, which leads to the development of new technologies that improve the well-being of the people of Poland, the United States and the world, while bolstering the economies of our two nations.

MISSION OF PLUS IP

Poland is the United States’ largest commercial partner in Central Europe, and the United States is one of the top sources of foreign investment in Poland. Over the past ten years, our bilateral trade quadrupled. American companies have invested more than $20 billion in Poland and more than 180,000 Poles gained employment directly from U.S. companies.

Poland is the sixth-largest economy in the European Union and has witnessed economic growth every year since 1992. Poland experienced GDP growth of over 20 percent from 2008 to 2013. Its highly educated work force, structural reforms, infrastructure development, and improved competitiveness have contributed to this strong growth.

PLUS IP is a public-private partnership that brings together U.S. and Polish government, business, and academia to advance innovation through joint venture and joint research and development projects between the United States and Poland. The two countries are sharing best practices and expertise to replicate successful American innovation models such as the Research Triangle and Silicon Valley in Poland. This effort provides opportunities for joint projects between U.S. and Polish companies and organizations aimed at promoting access to capital, more rapid and effective commercialization of technology, strengthening and expanding regional innovation clusters, improving collaboration in key economic sectors (i.e., defense, energy, health, and science and technology), and fostering the innovation ecosystem.

In this way we hope to expand entrepreneurial and business ties between our two countries, which leads to the development of new technologies that improve the well-being of the people of Poland, the United States and the world, while bolstering the economies of our two nations.

Purpose: The two governments created PLUS IP to expand bilateral innovation cooperation, and facilitate links between our academic communities, industry, high-tech companies, and governments with the intent of leading this cooperation to commercial projects.
