The Park is the meeting place for representatives of science, modern industry and all aspects of entrepreneurship. The main purpose of the science park is bringing research results (and research scientists) closer to the social and economic practice in all of the Wielkopolska region. High priority is accorded to research conducted in the following fields:
The objective of the technological park is devising new technologies and improving the existing ones through technological projects and tests conducted with the use of specialist equipment of the Park. An additional aim is promoting technology transfer process and all aspects of innovations. The following high priority objectives have been singled out in the area of new technologies and technology transfer:
The Park may and should also be treated as an incubator promoting emergence and development of new technology based small and medium sized enterprises. At present, the Park facilities are the site of the following:
Our plans include leasing of the newly constructed office facilities (with telephone, fax and computer access) and warehouse space to small enterprises.
The programme thus presented is in the process of implementation but it is not equal to our aspirations. The main goal over the next several months will be establishing a regional consortium and drawing up long-range plans for the Park. Steps have already been taken to find new locations and procure necessary funds. Our own resources, possibly complemented with the Union assistance funds, should make it possible to set out a long-range development programme for the years 2005-2010. PSTP is a member of the International Association of Science Parks (IASP).
Since 1997, information, training and consultation services in the area of technology transfer and innovation have been included in the Parks scope of operations. In 1997 the FERMIC office - the Partner of the European Union Polish Innovation Relay Centre - was established as part of the Park structure. The office was changed into the European Union IRC on 1 July 2000. Since the year 2000, the range of services specified above have been provided by a department especially formed for the purpose - the Centre for Innovation Promotion.
The mission of the Centre for Innovation Promotion includes:
PSTP conducts its activity in the field of research services, supports the relations beetweenscience and economy, takes part in the implementation of innovative activities and provides entrepreneurs with lease area, services supporting business activity and help to acquire funds for innovative development.
