    The most innovative companies in Poland

    Innovative companies increase prosperity for all people and are particularly important for Poland’s future development. The Polish Institute for Quality Research (PIBJA) is launching a new award to honor the most innovative companies in Poland. Almost 3800 worldwide patent registrations of Polish companies were examined.

    The positive relationship between innovation, economic growth, and welfare has been repeatedly explored – innovation creates jobs, inspires workers and the environment, and challenges competitors who in turn become more innovative. Especially if the innovation can be patented since patents are legally protected.


    Polish inventors and companies filed nearly 500 patent applications to the European Patent Office (EPO) in 2020. PIBJA’s research shows that around 3800 of its patents are registered worldwide in 2019 and 2020. In turn, the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland reports about 2300 patents that have been registered in Poland but do not originate exclusively from Polish applicants. The number of applications and registrations at the European Patent Office is increasing year by year and should continue to increase. However, Poland is not yet at the forefront of international comparisons.


    The awards were given in 9 sections – basic human needs (A), industrial processes and transportation (B), chemistry and metallurgy (C), textiles and paper industry (D), construction and mining (E), mechanical engineering, lighting, heating (F), physics (G), electrical engineering (H), new technologies (Y).


    The most innovative Polish companies include ITM Polska Sp. z o.o., followed by Valeo Autosystems, DataWalk, Estimote Polska, and Synthos. Among universities and scientific institutes, the following are leading: Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Jagiellonian University, AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Technical University of Łódź. 


    Thanks to the PIBJA Quality Mark, the most innovative companies can point to their special achievements and use them to shape their corporate image and attract customers.
