How can we help you

What we offer

Comprehensive assistance in R&D activities

Solution tailored to your needs

We have the best scientists and unique research equipment unparalleled nationwide. In proposing a solution to your technological problem, we focus on your needs. To tailor our solution proposal as closely as possible, below we outline the process of Łukasiewicz Challenges.

what else can you gain

Our team constantly monitors the instruments for financing R&D work in Poland and Europe. We follow competitions and programmes which could provide financing of a significant portion of the R&D expenses. On behalf of our partners, we also look for consortiums with which they can undertake the most ambitious projects, financed, for example, by Horizon Europe.

The Łukasiewicz network of laboratories carries out a whole range of tests and certifications for almost all industries. If you need this kind of service, contact us using the Challenge form and we will find the right team and infrastructure.

We work for many clients, so a number of technology solutions have already become our standardised products. By working with us, you gain access to the entire range of technology solutions that have already been developed and tested.

Once in a while, we invite our clients to an event entirely dedicated to R&D cooperation. The Łukasiewicz Innovatorium brings together representatives of science and business to identify areas of potential cooperation in the most concrete and direct way possible. Our aim is to create project teams capable of obtaining European funding for the most interesting R&D projects. You are welcome!

Our patron

The patron of our research network is Ignacy Łukasiewicz, born in 1822 in Zaduszniki – Polish pharmacist, entrepreneur, social and patriotic activist, philanthropist and pioneer of the oil industry.


Łukasiewicz, together with Jan Zeh, carried out the world’s first distillation of crude oil using scientific methods.


The first operation using artificial light was carried out in a Lviv hospital. The light was Ignacy Łukasiewicz’s kerosene lamp.


Together with T. Trzecieski, Łukasiewicz founded the first oil mine in Bóbrka near Krosno.


He founded the world’s first oil distillery in Ulaszowice near Jasło.


The Sejm of the Republic of Poland declared 2022 the Year of Ignacy Łukasiewicz.
