Transport research in Poland is defined by the National Programme for Scientific and Research & Development (R&D) Activities and by a scope of national transport policy documents.

In general, current research policy goals focus on implementing science sector reform packages:

  • Implementation of the Building on Knowledge reform;
  • Implementation of the reforms to the higher education system;
  • Launch of the new National Research Programme;
  • Elaboration of the long-term innovation strategy.

Policy priorities in thematic research were established in the Programme for Scientific Research and Development, for a five to ten year period. They comprise:

  • Society in conditions of secure, dynamic and sustainable socio-economic development;
  • Health;
  • Energy and infrastructure;
  • New technologies for the economy;
  • Environment and agriculture.

In each area, the National Programme formulated Strategic Research and Development Programmes to be implemented in a perspective of three to five years.

The latest National Research programme was launched in 2011 in response to challenges set out in the Europe 2020 Strategy. This strategic document provides a framework for developing and funding research. Transport related topics are integrated in the research areas 'Energy and Infrastructure' and 'New Technologies for National Economy'.

The transport policy framework is determined by several general strategic documents of national importance and key industry documents on the development of specific transport modes. The 2017 Strategy for responsible development, among other goals, indicates the way in which changes in mobility should be achieved in the perspective by 2020 and 2030. Other strategic documents related to transport research include:

The Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MNiSW) is the policy maker for R&D in Poland. In defining transport-related research priorities, the Ministry is supported by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Development, and the Ministry of Environment. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education regularly conducts evaluations and certification of all national scientific and R&D units.

The two executive agencies were also established:

These centres are fully operational and support research and development in Poland.

The Committee for Evaluation of Scientific Research Institutions is an advisory body to the Minister of Science and Higher Education and carries out comprehensive assessments of scientific research and development or research units according to international standards, along with the Scientific Policy Committee. The Main Council of Research Institutes (RGIB) represents the interests of the Polish research institutes to the state and local government authorities and to the scientific, economic and public organisations. 

Transport research is funded on a horizontal project-based approach. Research is funded under public funding in the National Programme for R&D and by private sources. All transport research projects financed by the National Programme are registered in a project database, which is maintained by the Information Processing Centre

Projects funded by private organisations are mainly industry-applied projects. Private-public funding schemes are also available.
