The Warsaw University of Technology (or “Warsaw Polytechnic” as Poles call it) is the leading technical university in Poland being number one in the ranking of technical Polish universities for nine years. Under the leadership of reputable Professor Jan Szmidt, who also was elected President of Polish Rector’s Conference in 2016 to serve through 2020, WUT put a special focus on R&D activities in order to support its partners – Polish and international companies, universities and scientific institutions around the world – to answer to the challenges of modern science and economy.
Warsaw University of Technology is a member of research consortia which combines the potential of outstanding scientists from various universities and other scientific institutions with that of entrepreneurs who wish to implement new technologies. As an example may serve the Centre for Pre-Clinical Research and Technologies (CePT), in which research will be conducted in the field of biomedical engineering and biotechnology, on most frequent civilization illnesses, in particular cancer, neurological diseases and illnesses of the circulation system, as well as illnesses connected with aging.
Revolutionary Interdisciplinary Research Hub
One of the projects in which WUT takes most pride in is the Centre for Advanced Materials and Technologies CEZAMAT. It is the greatest investment in Poland in the area of high technologies, which envisions the creation of a network of modern specialist research laboratories which meet the highest standards. The Centre will conduct interdisciplinary research on materials and technologies of the future from the border of physics, chemistry, biology and materials engineering.
”Warsaw Technological Space – WUT Centre for Innovation and Technology Transfer Management” is, in turn, an original project of Warsaw University of Technology, subsidised from the European Fund for Regional Development. The activity of the Centre covers the area of commercialisation and technology transfer. It will include activities connected with innovation processes – starting with identification of innovative results of research work conducted by Warsaw University of Technology and other Mazowsze scientific units, through developing new solutions in the field of technology transfer and innovation management, and ending with promotional activities in this area.
