Contracts for your lab

We will find for you partners from practice
University co-operation with the commercial sphere is most often done through customized research. It can be financially supported from public budgets through so-called Innovation Vouchers or Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. It is a financial instrument supporting the cooperation of business entities with scientific research institutes and universities. For this purpose, it is understood that cooperation is the purchase of specific services delivered by a particular university to a business entity, helping to increase the entrepreneurial innovation potential of the entrepreneur.
