Title variants
Languages of publication
Implementation of innovation by various business units is currently a natural phenomenon demonstrating the company’s development with means of new products, models or management methods. The ‘innovation’ word also began own operation in the area of academies. Innovations are inscribed in the academy’s development, because in such a place the researches on new products or processes are conducted, because researches are the university’s goal. It is nothing new for an academy, but currently the ‘innovation’ word is outspoken louder in the academies and began to work in various forms. Polish academies currently experience a sort of commercialisation learning process, leading to the researches and implementation of innovations, not only in own area, but generally for the external market. Economy and society should exploit the academic resources in broad extent, not only with means of a qualified personnel, but also with means of the resources in the academy’s disposition. The academies are currently becoming a business partner, and scientists become a sort of “businessmen” who sell own products. According to the statistical data, Polish academies occupy last places in worldwide rankings with respect to i.e. the innovations. It is interesting, because scientific employees are highly evaluated in other scientific centres located abroad.
