In Poland, the ESF is making technical and scientific expertise available to companies that need it
High-tech and entrepreneurial companies in the city of Kielce in Poland now have a new resource to call on thanks to the ESF. The local Technology Park is asking companies to point out the scientific or specialist expertise they need for particular challenges they face. Then, for five months, the Technology Park finds the specialist and covers his or her salary while working with the company to develop solutions.
The project is focusing on sectors such as energy efficiency, knowledge transfer and design – all of which offer much to the local economy. In addition, the idea is for the scientists, engineers, designers and marketing experts who take part to develop permanent, cooperative relationships with the participating companies.
