Ten talented pupils, selected from among seven thousand entrants from all over Poland, have been awarded the main prize in the 3rd edition of the ADAMED SmartUP programme, organised by the Adamed Group Foundation. Educational counselling with the best specialists in Poland and assistance in planning careers at the most prestigious universities in the country and abroad are just a few of the benefits they will receive through mentoring. The names of three scholarship holders from the 2nd edition of the programme — Jaromir Hunia, Jakub Wornbard, and Milena Malcharek — were also announced during the gala.
The final gala of the 3rd edition of the ADAMED SmartUP programme took place on 5th September 2017 at the Copernicus Conference Centre. The ten winners of the main prize were selected during the event. They received a package of ten months of educational counselling – primarily mentoring support for further development of their passions, tailored to the individual needs of each winner. They will have the opportunity to work with experts from both Poland and abroad.
Representatives of the Programme’s Scientific Council and the Management Board of the Adamed Group Foundation awarded the prizes to the following pupils:

Joining the ADAMED SmartUP programme gives the participants a chance to take their first steps towards impressive scientific careers. Our national experts and academic teachers will develop and implement tailor-made educational consultations that will take into account the interests and plans of the winners. Furthermore, the scholarship holders will receive financial support for further scientific development — says Katarzyna Dubno, Member of the Management Board of the Adamed Group Foundation.
This year’s winners started their adventure with the programme by playing an online text game called Scientific Survival. Fifty participants of an innovative camp, organised at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences and financed with EU funds, were selected from among 7,000 applications. Finally, after two weeks of theoretical and practical classes, ten most talented ones were chosen as winners of the main prize.
