The main objective behind the BRIdge Alfa programme implemented by the National Centre for Research and Development (NCfRD) is to provide assistance with regard to commercialisation of the most innovative ideas at early stages of their development.
As part of the second edition of the BRIdge Alfa programme that was finalised in 2016, the support it provided was received by 19 Polish funds, including Kvarko. Kvarko received 24 M to manage with the prospect of allocating the money for the commercialisation of scientific research, R&D works and other forms of transferring innovative solutions to the economy.
Time has shown that typical subsidy instruments are not much effective when it comes to the area of the financing of innovation. Owing to the commitment of Kvarko in terms of searching for promising start-ups, as well as the use of funds originating from BRIdge Alfa, the efficiency of development relating to groundbreaking ideas will be subject to considerable growth.
The premise of the programme is to stimulate the willingness of entrepreneurs to make their investments into the R&D activity, due to which the supply of projects demonstrating potential for commercialisation will be subject to increase. So far, investors have been unwilling to allocate their own resources to risky projects for fear of their loss. Kvarko provides innovative ideas with a possibility for entering the market. Thanks to the fund, visionaries may implement their own research works unobstructed, simultaneously being co-owners of their own companies and patents who do not need to worry about any legal, analytical or business assistance.
Kvarko ASI Sp. z o.o. implements Project co-financed from the European Funds, Task 1.3.1 Operational Program Smart Growth 2014 – 2020, entitled „Strengthening the competitiveness of the national sector of agri-food bioeconomy, as well as forest-wood and environmental sectors by implementing interdisciplinary technological solutions at the preseed stage”
