The Polish Science Voice

A publication Co-financed by National Center For Research and Development
In this issue of The Polish Science Voice, we continue to investigate the relationship between business and science, one that is of fundamental importance to the development of Poland. The country has now reached a point where it no longer can develop by relying solely on relatively well-educated human resources and relatively low labor costs. The history of the world, and of Poland, shows that fueled by these two factors, the development rate can soar, but not for long. They cannot serve as firm and lasting foundations for a growing and competitive economy, especially in today’s world, where development potential hinges on intellectual potential. A well-developed economy is one based on innovation and symbiosis of business and science.
Agnieszka Syntfeld-Każuch, Ph.D., from the Radiation Detector Physics Division of the National Center for Nuclear Research in Warsaw, talks to Karolina Olszewska.
Light aircraft built of intelligent materials that report damage and can adjust to variable operating conditions might sound like science fiction, but that is the kind of innovation that the state-of-the-art, safe and economical aviation sector expects.

“Putting R&D results to commercial use—testing new support mechanisms” is the name of a new pilot program launched by the National Center for Research and Development (NCBiR).
LINTEˆ2, Poland’s ultra-modern Laboratory of Innovative Power Engineering Technology and Renewable Energy Sources, is under construction at the Gdańsk University of Technology, which has obtained a zl.44 million grant for the project.
The devil is in the details. Such is the case when it comes to extinguishing fires in forests, moorland, storage facilities with pressed waste paper, textile warehouses and coal dust. The details are in how the extinguishing agent works. The agent developed by Polish researchers prevents water from being repelled by the burning material; instead, it soaks into it as if it were a sponge.
Paweł Baran, a pioneer in the development of the internet, and Jan Czochralski, the father of silicon-based electronics, are the first luminaries to be inducted into the Pantheon of Polish Inventors and Discoverers by a committee headed by Prof. Michał Kleiber, president of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN).
Polish astronomy project Solaris was one of five research projects presented in Brussels in early March at an event marking five years of the European Research Council.
The city of Ełk, in the northeastern province of Warmia and Mazuria, is in the process of setting up an innovation zone. The zone, also known as the Techno-Park, will cover an area of 25 hectares and comprise a research and development center, a business incubator, and a school for teaching science through experiments and hands-on learning—dubbed the Young Einstein School.
