The Polish Science Voice

A publication Co-financed by National Center For Research and Development
Over the years we at The Polish Science Voice have become used to journeying into the future and exploring the boundaries of science. Some of the projects we report on are so ambitious that they seem to be science fiction. It turns out, however, that the future is often closer than we think.
Researchers and doctors from the Foundation for Cardiac Surgery Development in the southern city of Zabrze have built a range of heart surgery robots collectively known as the Robin Heart. Practical and cost-efficient, these robots can successfully compete with the most modern Intuitive Surgery devices developed in the United States. The prototypes of the Polish robots have proved successful during experimental operations on animals. The Polish project, which began in 2012 and is now at its halfway point, is the most advanced of its kind in Europe.
Polish companies are preparing to launch production of new-generation power cables partly made of graphene, the revolutionary new material that is ultralight, flexible, over 100 times harder than steel and an excellent conductor of electricity.
Polish programmers eclipsed peers from countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Iran and Japan in an international programming contest held in the coastal Polish city of Gdynia.

The devices form a system that is designed to be a home assistant for the elderly and sick.

Shorter check-in times at the airport, smaller lines before a sports game or a music concert—scientists from the ŁódĽ University of Technology in central Poland are working on a gate that would make it possible to check the identity of several people at the same time. No one has ever developed anything like this internationally.
Polish scientists have come up with a new kind of meat product with reduced allergenicity and increased selenium and polyunsaturated fatty acid content. The new products have won a swathe of international awards.
