Cluster Strategy

The BioTechMed Cluster Mazovia is a network of companies, science and research facilities, and business institutions, located mainly in the metropolitan region of Warsaw, for whom the key condition for development is the introduction of new solutions into the economic practice.

The partners of the Cluster create a complete ecosystem of innovation by establishing and broadening cooperation between science and business. Thanks to previous experience, the BTM Innovations team developed the original “Bridge2Market” technology transfer model, becoming one of the most recognizable Polish technology transfer centres during the several years of its operation.

BTM Innovations, as the coordinator of the Cluster, is responsible for gathering and processing information concerning research and science skills, research infrastructure, and intellectual property in research facilities and investigating the needs of enterprises by implementing ideas conceived in Poland.
