Biotechnology Development Strategy

In October 2017, in the Presidential Palace, the President of Poland Andrzej Duda announced that biotechnology is one of the technologies of the future. In reference to this, Paweł Borys from Polish Development Fund announced a Biotechnology Development Program.

At the end of the year, the Minister of Science and the Minister of Development presented the idea of establishing the Institute of Medical Biotechnology.

What’s more, Jadwiga Emilewicz – a person who actively supports the startup environment in Poland – became the Minister of Enterprise and Technology.

If we combine the above with the human potential that Poland has, we can become the biotechnological power of Europe. What else should we change to make it possible? At what stage are the institutions?
