To an increasing extent the current development processes are going on in a specific network covering business networks, scientific and research institutions and nongovernmental institutions as well as public administration and citizen’s initiative. The role of network relations which facilitate merging of ideas and the exchange of information is growing. The innovation and entrepreneurship centres which have been developing in Poland since the early 1990s of the 20th century matter more and more in these processes. Currently, the entrepreneurship support infrastructure in Poland consists of different types of innovation and entrepreneurship centres: technology parks and incubators, business incubators, pre-incubators, technology transfer centres, training and advisory centres, loan funds, guarantee funds, seed funds etc. These institutions are mainly intended to enhance the people’s creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation leading to the more efficient use of the local growth factors. Since the beginning of system transformation the number of innovation and entrepreneurship centres has been systematically growing up to 821 in the mid-2012. The process of developing the entrepreneurship supporting system is still going on however, and there are new initiatives and new areas emerging where the innovation and entrepreneurship centres operate. The changes observed and analysis of the experience acquired by “knowledge economy leaders” show an increasing role of support infrastructure in the process of the Polish economy innovation development. In the era of technological changes and dynamic expansion of the innovation to the services, organisations, marketing and social issues, the enterprises are looking for new solutions and this is where the innovation and entrepreneurship centres may have substantial contribution.
