The PATENT PLUS Programme is a financial support instrument with the main purpose of increasing the intellectual property management effectiveness via patenting.

The PATENT PLUS Programme was created to encourage both scientists and management of research entities to file for legal protection of results of research and studies carried out by them. Its main objective is an increase in number of patent applications leading to a better protection of industrial property rights in Poland by way of co-funding or refunding of costs incurred by submittal of a patent application. The implementation of the programme should make it easier to attract business partners, and, in an indirect manner, result in an intensified commercialization of developed inventions.
