The annual Poland Day 2016 is coming up. Join us at the Life Science Symposium: Clean Energy and Clean Water, Business Mixer, and Polish Elevator Pitch Competition on Thursday, March 17th, at Stanford University.

For fourteen years, the US-Polish Trade Council (USPTC), a nonprofit grassroots organization, has been building bridges between the United States and Poland through collaborations in industry and academia. The Symposium is driven by USPTC’s mission to exchange knowledge on science and technology developments relevant to U.S.-Polish cooperation.

The theme of this spring’s Symposium is opportunities and challenges in the clean energy and clean water economy. The event will center around a panel discussion led by distinguished experts from U.S. and Polish universities, government, and industry, with active participation by Symposium attendees. Together, we will explore the development and adaptation of breakthrough clean energy and clean water technologies and trends in Polish and American markets.

During the evening part of the program, Elevator Pitch Competition, seven Polish companies will pitch to our panel of judges.
