    Polish and US chiefs of diplomacy Minister Radosław Sikorski and US Secretary of State John Kerry signed in Warsaw a Polish-US Innovation Program, which aims to foster R&D cooperation between the two countries.

    To that end, a special Innovation Council will be set up. During a press conference following the ceremony Secretary Kerry said: We’re particularly pleased to have signed the U.S.-Polish innovation program today. When I was last here, I met a bunch of young researchers, innovators, who showed me what they had done with robotics to create a rover capacity for exploration, whether in outer space or elsewhere.  And this is the future of Poland, it’s the future for all of us.  What we signed today will bring U.S. and Polish researchers, entrepreneurs, innovators, financers, educators together in an effort for us to be able to encourage the discoveries that will make life better and create jobs for our people.

     

    The United States and Poland are collaborating on a bilateral innovation program that will bring together Polish and American government representatives, businesses, researchers, academics, and investors.  Under the U.S.-Poland Science and Technology Agreement, American and Polish scientists and researchers already collaborate on advances in areas such as energy and natural resource management, as well as opportunities to expand the participation of women and girls in science.
