Talent Show for Innovators
Public television channel TVP1 has launched a new talent show focusing on aspiring entrepreneurs with a passion for innovation.

Entitled Talent. Zgłoś się (Talent. Check In!), the show is produced by Poland’s public broadcaster TVP in partnership with the National Center for Research and Development (NCBiR). The program seeks out individuals with ideas for inventive products, services and technology and helps them turn these into viable businesses.

Open auditions for the show were held in the cities of Gdańsk, Katowice, Poznań and Warsaw. A total of 40 contestants were selected, each of whom will receive zl.5,000 to prepare for the next stage. Prizes up for grabs in the show are worth a total of zl.1 million. Projects submitted by the contestants are evaluated by a panel of judges made up of research and development experts, financial and investment market insiders, the founders and owners of various Polish companies and famous entrepreneurs. These include Prof. Krzysztof Jan Kurzydłowski, director of the National Center for Research and Development; Andrzej Arendarski, head of the Polish Chamber of Commerce (KIG); Dariusz Żuk, founder of Academickie Inkubatory Przedsiębiorczości (Academic Business Incubators),an initiative that aims to develop entrepreneurship among university students in Poland; and Tomasz Czechowicz, the founder of MCI Management.

The judges also include popular actors Marek Kondrat, Tomasz Karolak and Anna Mucha and business journalist Roman Młodkowski. The show hosts are Paulina Chylewska and Radek Brzózka. Talent. Zgłoś się goes on air on TVP 1 at 8:10 p.m. every Tuesday.

This is the second show produced jointly by TVP and the National Center for Research and Development this year. In August, TVP 1 launched Wiadomości naukowe (Science News), which focuses on innovative ideas and on ways of bringing these to the market, highlighting successful projects carried out jointly by businessmen and researchers.

Aired just before the Wiadomości news program on Sundays, Wiadomości naukowe highlights innovative projects carried out by Polish researchers, enterprises and start-up companies and also explores new technology. Projects featured in Wiadomości naukowe so far include a Polish-designed underwater hotel, 3D-printed implants, and a new method to detect lung cancer. The show is aired every Sunday at 7:25 p.m. All episodes screened so far are available on the National Center for Research and Development’s YouTube channel, NCBRnews.
