This year’s Hannover Messe has come to an end, and it’s been a blast. At SciTech Poland, you could see all the cool things Poland has got to offer when it comes to tech & science. Polish inventors and scientists saw their chance to shine, and they took it.
SciTech Poland was opened on the first day of Hannover Messe 2017, April 24. Prime Minister Beata Szydło and Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin had the honours of opening it.
„Polish scientists achieve impressive things. Poland is in the top twenty world’s best countries is science. I’m sure that thanks to our government policy, the strategy of Responsible Growth and the reform of universities and research institutions we’ll be able to be in the top ten in a matter of years,” said Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin, opening SciTech Poland this year.
In his opening speech, Gowin spoke of the potential Polish scientists have. He highlighted that intelligent industrialisation means smart application of science in the modern Polish economy. He said that bridging the gap between science and economy is the most important task for the Ministry of Science and Higher Education right now. That way innovations created by the scientists can exist on a global scale and can really empower industries.
And those are exactly the kind of innovations that SciTech Poland showcased. All the technologies you could check out were created in the higher education sector. You could explore many projects, some of them just presentations of basic research to ready-to-implement technologies.
The technologies caught people’s eye. There were one-on-one meetings with potential investors, where the teams could discuss their innovations in greater detail. A few of the technologies got extremely promising contracts that, in the future, can bring funding the teams need to develop their inventions.
