Funding body and source of funding
The National Centre for Research and Development is the implementing agency of the Minister of Science and Higher Education. It was appointed in the summer of 2007 as an entity in charge of managing tasks associated with national science in general and science and technology related to innovation policies in particular. When founded it was the first entity to facilitate an effective dialogue between the scientific and business communities. Currently, it operates under the Act on National Centre for Research and Development dated 30 April 2010 (Journal of Laws from 2010, No. 96 item 616). The science reform adopted in the autumn 2010 gave the Centre more freedom to manage its financial assets, within the scope of a strategic research program. In addition, the National Centre for Research and Development extended its activity with new initiatives on 1 September 2011. Assigned by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education the function of the Mediation Institution in three operational programs: Human Capital, Innovative Economy and Infrastructure and Environment, the Centre became one of the greatest innovation centers in Poland. The activity of the Centre is funded by the national treasury and the European Union.
