Puławy Competence Center – the winner of Czesław Siekierski special award at AGROTECH fair in Kielce

“It is said that there is still a lot we can do to improve the cooperation between science and business. However, even the best cooperation in this area will not bring the expected results unless we remember about our customers. A company is worth as much as the value of its clients. Consequently, we need to know them and we need to manage this value well. That is why we have created Puławy Competence Center, whose consortium includes not only big companies and academic communities but also associations representing customers. In the beginning, Puławy Competence Center was a kind of platform for exchanging experience, ideas and expectations. Nowadays, we are running innovative research projects and postgraduate studies and organizing conferences.
