Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+, established in 2007, is a unique undertaking in Poland, dedicated to fostering innovation based on the co-operation of academia, local government and innovative business. The company’s shareholders are the largest universities in Wroclaw as well as the authorities of the city of Wroclaw.
EIT+ is currently developing its new Pracze Campus – the most significant Polish R&D investment in recent years. A network of laboratories and offices, which are already under construction, will meet world class standards with regard to equipment, infrastructure management and R&D support services.
Apart from physical facilities, the Pracze Campus aims to become a vibrant innovation village, truly supportive of the creative environment indispensable for the development of the Knowledge Based Economy. International colleagues from complementary backgrounds such as business incubators, high technology companies, financial institutions and research will mingle in a collaborative and pleasant atmosphere. A discrete Science Park and Climate and Energy Park are also planned to be constructed on the premises of the Campus.
EIT+ is also a founding partner in one of the six European Regional Innovation Communities (RICs) dedicated to address the problem of climate change. It is a newly created undertaking of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology aimed at developing and implementing new life-improving and pro-ecological technologies.
The strategic goal of the company is to organise and carry out interdisciplinary research activities as well as knowledge management and transfer particularly in the following areas: biotechnology, medical technologies, nanotechnologies, advanced materials, telecommunication technologies and climate change.
