Górnośląsko-Zagłębiowska Metropolia (GZM) is the first metropolitan association in Poland. Priority is not only ennoblement, but also a number of hitherto unknown challenges and needs. Opportunities for economic development, unprecedented in the country, are possible thanks to innovative methods of managing a modern metropolis, cooperation between the business sphere and science under the aegis of local governments and with the support of business environment institutions. GZM becomes a competitive growth center through the integration of local activities and their coordination.
