  • Abstract

    The sector of science in Poland is loosely connected with the economy. Scholars very rarely start technological cooperation with entrepreneurs to run research and development work and to create new solutions. The experts indicate that this is a result of a long-term improper scientific-technical and innovative strategy and the occurrence of many barriers for the cooperation between scientific entities and entrepreneurs. The paper discusses the results of the authorís research on the technological cooperation between scholars and entrepreneurs, its intensity and nature between 2002 and 2007. The researched period is representative for nearly twenty years of Polish transformation before starting, at the end of 2008, the reform of the sector of science and research.
