Poland Day 2017
Every year, US-Polish Trade Council (USPTC) looks again forward to introducing American and Polish business community to the next edition of Poland Day in Silicon Valley.We cordially invite you to participate in Polish-American Science and Technology Symposium that will take place on June 28, 2017, at Stanford University.
For fifteen years, 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 collaboration.
The theme of this year’s Symposium is opportunities and challenges in the electromobility. The event will center around panel discussions led by distinguished experts from the U.S. and Polish universities, government, and industry, with active participation by Symposium attendees. The broad range of topics examined during the Symposium will include, inter alia, cutting-edge technological advancements, financing methods and regulatory incentives designed to promote and expand electromobility. Together, we will explore the development and adaptation of breakthrough electromobility technologies and trends in Polish and American markets.
