This includes activities for improvement of scientific activity, development of necessary R&D infrastructure, creation of conditions for improved technology transfer, strengthening ties between researchers and entrepreneurs to boost the commercialization of research results, supporting the expansion of innovative and technology-oriented companies as well as offering new financial instruments (seed and venture capital) for companies, especially innovative SMEs.
