Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to give an overview of the current state of technology transfer in Poland by examining various stages of the process and indicators associated with different actors involved. In order to examine the role of technology in polish enterprises, it takes into account different forms of intellectual property, both created and acquired in Poland. Data taken into consideration include domestic and external sources, focused on the years 2013 - 2017. The main sources of the statistics are the Polish Patent Office and the Central Statistics Office.

Phenomena observed in the data are supported and elaborated by domestic research articles concerned with technology transfer and open innovation. The most striking feature of such juxtaposition is the fact, that some of the indicators presented in the article are surprisingly low, considering overall economic situation.

All of the above represents the context of the Open Innovation Network project, which is also presented in the paper. Interpretation of the presented results is included in the discussion section. Some of the indicators confirm the status of polish economy as moderately innovative, however trends in performance of a small group of technical universities show a promising development in the field of technology transfer.

Keywords: Technology transfer, open innovation, Polish enterprises, technical universities, patent applications, intellectual property.
