Polpharma supports young scholars from across the globe

Polpharma has become a partner of MILSET Expo Sciences Europe (ESE), the largest international trade fair for young innovators in Europe. It is the first event of this type organised in Poland. The most talented young scholars from across the globe will descend on the Polish town of Gdynia between 16 and 22 July. Exhibitors will include the people behind the most innovative developments in biology, chemistry and medicine.

The first Expo Sciences Europe (ESE) was held in 1996. It was initiated by the international non-profit organisation MILSET-International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology, which supports the development of scientific culture and promotes innovations among the youth. This year’s fair will be held in Poland for the first time. It is organised by the Advanced Technology Foundation and hosted by Gdynia, a town which offers favourable conditions for innovations and young innovators, as well as by the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park. Polpharma, a company whose key areas of activity include supporting young scientists on all levels of education, is a partner of the event.

Polpharma is the largest Polish pharmaceutical company and a market leader in terms of its research and development spend. Our mission is to support innovation – we work with scientists and academic circles, but for years we have also been promoting science among the youth, e.g. through the E(x)plory competition. “We are convinced that Gdynia’s Expo Sciences will become an inspiration for the development of talent and future generations of researchers,” says Magdalena Rzeszotalska, Corporate Communications and CSR Director at Polpharma.

As many as 119 innovative projects will be showcased at the ESE. The event will bring together 284 participants from 27 countries across the globe. They will include the people behind the most innovative developments in biology and chemistry, as well as medical and pharmaceutical sciences. Poland will be represented by the winners of the E(x)plory Science Competition (10 projects), selected during last year’s Gdynia E(x)plory Week 2017.
