Abstract:

The Polish Life Science sector has been growing for the last decade and has received billions of euros in EU funding, but has still failed to attract significant private investment. Despite the EU financing, there are still no real market or investment success stories, although companies are emerging with the potential to be globally competitive. This article examines the financing and behaviour of the Polish Life Science sector in the context of the Polish innovative economy and provides a cultural perspective to the challenges facing the sector.

Keywords: Biotechnology, life science, investment, funding, venture capital, culture, grants.
