Innovative companies and science units showcase Poland in Hannover
Saule Technologies, EcoElectronics, XTPL, Photon, Transition Technologies, Solaris Bus, Genicore, PIAP and VIGO Systems are just some of the NCBR beneficiaries who will be present at the Hanover Messe 2017.
With Poland as a partner country this year, the largest industrial fair in the world will begin on Monday 24 April in Hannover. In keeping with the Smart means Poland slogan, at Hannover Messe 2017 Polish companies and science units will showcase the new face of the Polish economy.
- Our beneficiaries form the majority of exhibitors at the Polish national stand. Among other things, they will present solutions created and being created with NCBR support. The NCBR investments in the development of innovative Polish projects inseparably involves risk taking, but it is precisely by making courageous decisions that innovation becomes Poland’s showcase in the world, says NCBR Director Prof. Maciej Chorowski. - By participating in fairs Polish companies and scientific units have a unique opportunity to develop business contacts and cooperation with foreign partners, NCBR director adds.
Innovations and modern technologies showcase Poland
The Polish National Stand (Hall 3) will be the largest at the fair. Presented at over 1200 m2, including at the NCBR stand, will be a vast number of innovative technologies and products created by Polish companies and science units. Visitors and participants will see, among others, ultra-fast infrared detectors, unmanned systems, charging stations for electric vehicles, autonomous mobile robots, effects of work on the technology of printing ultra-thin conductive lines, as well as the Photon – a globally innovative educational robot. Photon will be presented at the official opening of the Polish National Stand on the first day of the fair.
Organised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the second Polish stand at the fair will be the 400 m2 large SciTech Poland (Hall 2). The most interesting inventions from Polish universities, research institutes and innovative solutions created by Polish students will be available to visitors and participants of the fair. Visitors to SciTech will see, among others, the B-Droid prototype - a robot for pollinating plants constructed by the team of a laureate of the NCBR programme for young scientists, a light-powered and controlled microbe capable of carrying loads 10 times higher than its own, as well as a student-made solar car. A total of 27 innovative solutions will be presented which can be found on SciTech Poland website.
Participants of the fair visiting Polish laboratories
One of the elements of Poland's participation in the fair will also be the presentation of the offer and possibilities of Polish research centres. Thanks to NCBR "virtual walks", fair participants will move to modern and well-equipped Polish laboratories which can compete with foreign centres, providing R&D services for business and science institutions. Wroclaw Research Centre EIT +, Bronowice IFJ PAN Cyclotron Centre, Wielkopolska Centre of Advanced Technologies, National Centre for Synchrotron Radar SOLARIS, Centre for Advanced Materials and Technology CEZAMAT and AGH University of Science and Technology will showcase themselves at the Hannover Messe 2017.
Hannover Messe will be held from 24 to 28 April. Organisers estimate that over 250,000 visitors will visit the fair. Responsible for Poland's participation are the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Ministry of Development and their executive agencies: the National Centre for Research and Development and the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development.
