About usstrzaka

Today’s economy poses high requirements of partners from the R&D sector. These concern primarily the interdisciplinary character of the services offered, appropriate competences and resources, as well as the rate and effectiveness of work performance. Open Innovation, the approach to knowledge management used ever more frequently by enterprises and research organisations in Europe and around the world, is characterised by an intensive development of research cooperation with many external providers simultaneously through, among others, creation of less formal network structures. In order to meet the expectations of industry and participate in the global innovation processes, the scientific research sector must become more open to new partners and a greater rate of activity.

In order to meet these challenges, in 2001 a group of research institutes specialising in diverse subject areas undertook the initiative of creating the Technology Partners Consortium.
