The ministerial programme promoting innovation in student research clubs is aimed at supporting them in:

  • conducting research or development work, particularly the one aimed at developing and modernising technologies and technical solutions, as well as promoting the results,
  • transferring the results of research and development work to the economic sector,
  • gaining soft skills crucial for conducting research, development work, and the promotion of results, especially in terms of the commercialisation of these results and related know-how, teamwork, and public speaking,
  • purchasing certificates and licences essential in the process of commercialising research and development work results as well as its know-how.

In the fourth edition of the programme, there were as many as 314 applications. Almost a half of them was qualified and will obtain funds. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education allocated nearly PLN 9.2 million for the implementation of 153 projects.
