    The seminar 'Go High Tech! Discover Possibilities for Polish-Danish Cooperation within IT, Green-Tech and R&D' was opened by Deputy Minister in the Polish Ministry of Development, Radosław Domagalski-Łabędzki.

    The goal of the seminar 'Go High Tech! Discover Possibilities for Polish-Danish Cooperation within IT, Green-Tech and R&D', which took place on 10 March on the premises of the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI), was to promote Poland as a modern, creative and interesting partner for cooperation in the IT and green technology sectors. A special focus was put on the Podkarpackie Region, whose companies were promoted during the event. The seminarium was opened by Deputy Minister in the Polish Ministry of Development, Radosław Domagalski-Łabędzki, who is responsible for the economic promotion of Poland. Domagalski-Łabędzki outlined, among others, the priorities of the Polish government in the area of economic development, which include increased funds for innovation, a better cooperation between scientific and business communities and increased focus on creative and novel technologies.

     

    - Denmark is well-known worldwide for its modern, green technologies. But Poland is also such a country, with 8% of its GDP stemming from the ICT or related sectors. In Europe this number averages 4,3%, said Polish Ambassador Henryka Mościcka-Dendys in her opening remarks. Minister Domagalski-Łabędzki stressed that the Polish government is strongly committed to investing in innovation and new technologies in order for Poland to be able to avoid the middle-income trap.

     

    During the first part of the seminar Jens Lundsgaard from the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth stressed that Danish companies attach great importance to cooperation with Polish business and pointed to Denmark’s needs in the IT sector, especially as regards human ressources and exchange of experiences. Peder Søgaard-Pedersen, Head of Digital Single Market Policy at DI, talked of the potential deriving from an opening up of the digital market in a Danish-Polish context.

     

    The seminar also saw presentations by company representatives from the Podkarpackie Region, and of Asseco – a Polish company with investments in Denmark. Finally, Hans Enggrob from the Technical University of Denmark presented solutions in the area of commercialization of innovative projects, which is possible thanks to between science and business.
