Digital Knowledge Observatory Foundation

The Digital Knowledge Observatory Foundation was established in 2005 and is a pioneer in the field of digital transformation, especially education. Its portfolio includes nearly 20 projects, including research and development and technology transfer, which have been successfully implemented outside Poland, for example in Spain, Italy, Malta, Austria or Qatar. For many years, he has been actively working for the development of young Polish enterprises. Currently, under the Digital Knowledge brand, he runs the technology cluster https://knowledgecluster.pl/, three accelerators (Knowledge Surveys, Public Innovations (Pionier NCBiR) and the Academic Startup League) and a seed capital fund (EdtechHub - Alfa Bridge NCBiR), from which everyone has a different specificity and target group. He works with a group of over 200 experts and mentors. A broad view of support for companies at an early stage of development allows the Foundation to provide holistic assistance. The flagship project is the center of new technologies https://knowledgevillage.pl/ established under the "Development of EduKlastra - New Media in Education" together with digital production laboratories https://digitalspace.pl/

The Digital Knowledge Observatory Foundation is on the list of pro-innovation units of the Ministry of Development.
