Is biotechnology 2.0 an opportunity for Polish science and economy? Another ISW conference it forthcoming

For nearly 30 years, the Institute for Eastern Studies, as part of the Economic Forum in Krynica, has been inviting the most important figures of politics, business, science and the media to discuss the key issues for Poland and the region. Undoubtedly, they include broadly understood health care, which due to the richness and multithreading of the issues discussed a few years ago was exposed as a separate event – the Health Protection Forum. For 9 years it has been an inseparable part of the Economic Forum in Krynica, the largest and most important economic and political forum in Central and Eastern Europe. Institute, among others in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, also organizes perimeter discussions outside the Krynica Forum, which are an extension of the subject discussed in the FOZ.   On December 3rd at the Foksal Press Center there will be a debate on “Is biotechnology 2.0 an opportunity for Polish science and the economy?”

Date: Monday, December 3rd, 2018
