Based on an analysis of personnel flows (managerial and employee ), the authors show that knowledge flows in the biotech sector in Poland are strongly concentrated in space. With respect to managerial intra-metropolitan flows, Warszawa has a similar position to Cracow and the Tri-City (Gdańsk – Gdynia – Sopot conurbation ). Cracow is characterised by strong isolation with respect to personnel flows from the outside. On the other hand, within the scope of inter-metropolitan flows, Poland’s capital is dominant, in particular in terms of flows to the Tri-city, Poznań and Łódź. In the case of employee flows, the most important features of the examined issue are: dominance of intra-metropolitan flows and strong relationship between flows and the headquarters of the largest biotechnological companies. The conducted studies have shown that in the context of the Polish biotech sector, the concept of “local buzz, global pipelines” is corroborated, in line with which local and global knowledge flows are complementary with respect to each other.
