Poland improved its position in the European ranking of innovation. The number of patent applications to the European Patent Office (EPO) has significantly increased in 2014. So did the number of paten application from Poland to international Patent Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). However, the experts argue that the rate of transition of Polish economy towards innovations still needs to be improved. Those are the results of the Crido Taxand report presented on 28 May during the conference co-organised with PAIiIZ.

Comparing to the rest of CEE, in 2014, Poland has the biggest number of patent application in the region (475). The second was the Czech Republic (167). Also Poland has the biggest growth rate of applying for patens - in the last decade the rate went up by 353% in Poland, in Czech Republic it increased by 117% and in Hungary only by 39%.

According to professor Tadeusz Baczko from Polish Academy of Science, although the innovative distance between Poland and the rest of Europe is shrinking, the rate of change still remains to low. However, if Poland maintains the level of innovation development, soon may compete with regional leaders as Slovenia and Estonia.
