According to a 2010 AmCham report, high quality education is the key to long-term development and competitiveness of a country. The impact of education depends largely on how well academia cooperates with industry and to what extent there is an effective mutual transfer of knowledge. Our report, “Industry-Academia Cooperation in Poland. Challenges and ways to narrow the gap,” published in January 2010, is still relevant today and its concerns remain important to AmCham members.
Looking forward to developing a more innovative economy in Poland and looking forward to ensuring another 25 years of successful economic development, AmCham Poland has invited the new Minister of Science and Higher Education to our April Monthly Meeting to discuss the role of higher education in shaping the future.
Are Polish universities meeting Poland’s staffing and development needs? How to encourage universities to open their doors to industry? What is the role of government in promoting and improving industry-academia cooperation? How to ensure successful commercialization of Polish innovation? What are the current plans and priorities of the Minister of Science and Higher Education?
Our members found out more about these and other issues directly from the new Minister of Science and Higher Education, Ms. Lena Kolarska-Bobińska at our monthly meeting on April 2, 2014 at the InterContinental Hotel.
