​​​​Science Funds

Exploit the intellectual capital of your Universities​​ and Research Centres.

META's Science fund category focuses on helping universities and research centres better exploit their intellectual capital and make the most from their research results. 

These funds help researchers with promising technologies to bridge the gaps preventing them reaching the market, providing:

  • ​seed financing to sustain the inventors in turning patented/patentable ideas into a sellable product 
  • Intellectual Property commercialization support: helping researchers patent their research, projects and products, and take their intellectual property to market
  • a better understanding of knowledge exploitation, including dedicated training programmes specifically oriented to scientists and their organisations (see Research Helicopter).
  • knowledge exploitation and transfer services, delivered in the framework of R&D projects.

Current Funds, Future Developments​

Currently, META's Xplorer Fund - the first 'proof of concept' fund in Poland​ - has 5 million euros under management, and is focused on hi-tech projects from the ICT, Life Science, Cleantech, and Energy Sectors.

META is also studying how best to help network Science Parks together to better leverage Venture Capital investments to invest in knowledge intensive companies.​​ ​
