At the opening, Małgorzata Adamkiewicz emphasised successes achieved by Poles in different aspects of life, such as sports or business; she also pointed out that the innovative economy needs to be boosted so that Poland can gain a competitive edge on the international scene.

“The ambition of our foundation is to propagate cooperation and integration between the scientific community and the pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnological industries. We also would like to cooperate more closely with entities with similar tasks and objectives, acting both in Poland and abroad,” said Małgorzata Adamkiewicz, MD, PhD, Chairperson of the Adamed Group Foundation.

In her presentation, Małgorzata Adamkiewicz addressed the issue of the current level of interest that young people demonstrate towards exact science, referring to the results of surveys conducted among students and statistics with regards to Olympiads.

Later, the Chairperson of the Adamed Group Foundation presented the assumptions of the first, innovative ADAMED SmartUP educational programme to the guests.

Then there was a debate. The aim of the debate was to arrive at an answer to the question “How should young talent be polished?”.
