In order to participate in the Career Fair you must fill out and submit an electronic form by April 30, 2017, which can we found on the website.

The development and implementation of innovation is being widely discussed now both at the EU forum (plans to establish a new UE institution – The European Innovation Council) as well as in Poland (establishing Council for Innovation, which aims, among other things, to coordinate pro-innovative instruments for policy; national and regional smart specializations were selected; White Book of Innovation is being developed). Many documents emphasize the need to create a knowledge-based economy by means of increasing scientific potential, mobility of academic staff, and commercialization of inventions and innovations. Therefore, the purpose of the conference is to promote innovative solutions which are largely created by young scientists and students.

The organizers hope that presenting and promoting innovative solutions among IATI partners and representatives of the industry will enable faster implementation of some of these solutions.

Thematic areas:

  • Mechanics, mechatronics and nanotechnologies
  • Management of mineral resources
  • Environmental Protection
  • Economics and management
  • Energy industry
  • New Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)

It is required to fill the registration form until 8th of May 2017
