PROJECT TITLE: „EXCHANGE OF SMART SOLUTIONS BETWEEN V4 AND EU IN ENERGY, ENVIRONMENT AND LIFE”
The project implementation deadline: 09.2020 – 07.2021
Project value: € 26,870.00
Research team: dr inż Iwona Krzyżewska, dr inż. Paweł Sobczak, mgr Jakub Stęchły (PhD candidate), Rafał Kotarba (WSB University student), Arkadiusz Stanik (WSB University student).
The project continues EU strategy – Clean Energy Education and Energy Intensification (C3E) Initiative, launched in 2010. C3E was born on the basis that ideas and talents of all members of society are central to our future clean energy challenges. Women make up significantly less than half of the workforce in the STEM and clean energy sector. The project focus on the interdisciplinary impact of energy consumption, including its accumulation, environmental impact and human life. The project’s objectives eliminate the gap in research between women and men and increase female participation and leadership in these areas. Currently, most of the impacts in a given area are „decentralized”, e.g. in the research or educational sector. The project is trying to link this, including the often mentioned impact of involving women and young workers at the start of their work in energy related activities. The activities mentioned in the project contain all elements of incentives and information activities: contests, popularization and presentation activities, or mentoring.

The WSB University was a project leader that involved the internationalization of Start-ups in the Visegrad countries based on smart specializations common to this region.
The project built strong links between Start-ups, SMEs, NGOs and local authorities interested in international cooperation (in the Visegrad region) in the area of Smart Specializations. In the first phase, common smart specializations for the countries of the Visegrad region were identified, described and published in the form of Maps (during international workshops in Poland with the participation of national experts and project partners – November 2017). Then, during 4 regional workshops (SK, CZR, HU, PL), the results of research and scientific work were presented among local researchers and stakeholders, i.e. start-ups, SMEs, NGOs and local authorities. The result of the project is the Visegrad Networking Database available at: http://v4database.wsb.edu.pl/.
