The basic premise of this magazine, which we have been putting out for nearly four years, is to present readers with an overview of Polish science, the people involved in it and their achievements. This is a publication which also focuses on how the Polish science sector is organized, how it is financed and in what ways it is changing.

As we began to produce the magazine it soon became obvious that a publication like this, which closely follows and documents developments in Poland’s science sector, needs to increasingly tackle technology.

Quite simply, Polish science is entering a stage of increasingly closer ties with business. These ties determine the practical aspect of research. The buzzword is innovation, which applies to both technology itself and they way it is introduced. The new institutional powerhouses behind the development of Polish science, the National Center for Research and Development and the National Science Center, with active support from key nongovernmental organizations such as the Foundation for Polish Science, are spending more than ever—though still not enough—to bring Polish science and research into the top international league. At the same time, a strong emphasis is being placed on a search for new methods and increasingly closer ties with business.

This issue of The Polish Science Voice highlights some clear, practical signs of progress in this area. Obviously, this is not the first nor the last time we are doing that. Naturally, these signs vary in significance. The biggest news is the development of a Polish method for obtaining graphene, a revolutionary new material that may eventually replace silicon in electronics. Everybody’s clamoring to lay their hands on it at reasonable cost, and Polish researchers seem to be the closest to attaining this goal.

The list of innovative developments in Polish science is long and continues to grow. This is confirmed by successful Polish inventions at exhibitions and competitions in Paris and Brussels, as well as in cities in Britain and Germany.

As usual, this issue of The Polish Science Voice also brings a wealth of other news from the world of Polish science and technology.
