Ass. Prof. Dr. Piotr H. Skarżyński took part in the Europe in the East at the 23rd WELCONOMY Forum in Torun.

During the presentation, he presented the achievements of the staff of the Center of Hearing and Speech Medincus in establishing cooperation with the medical research centres in the former USSR countries. He indicated the model of cooperation between the scientific staff of the country in which the project is implemented and the Polish scientists. Furthermore, he drew attention to the fact that implementation of the projects abroad does not suffice to establish relationships effectively – equally neccessary, the time and the measures used to host foreign experts in our country have to be spent. These are the only means by which the latest know-how can be conveyed effectively. Besides, in this way the position of the Polish research centres can be built, as they are perceived as the world leaders in the category and the role models.

The meeting was moderated by the Honorary Consul of Ukraine Ass. Prof. Krzysztof  Sikora , the President of the University of  Economy in Bydgoszcz. Moreover, the participants of the panel included Davit Japaridze from Georgia and Jerzy Rutkowski who presented the leaders of the East Europe cluster.
