LONDON | British Polish Chamber of Commerce | Poland as a hub for innovation

Poland has advanced a long way from being a low-cost base for call centres and back offices. Today, this fast-growing sector of the Polish economy (employment rose by 25% to 200,000 over the course of 2016) is attracting global IT centres, R&D activities, clinical trials management, knowledge process outsourcing and high-value financial services activities.

Poland's well-educated and highly motivated labour force is proving itself capable of delivering increasingly sophisticated services.

It's not just Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw that are attracting foreign direct investment in services - Gdansk, Poznan, Katowice - even Lodz, Lublin and Olsztyn are attracting global corporations. And there are many more university cities around Poland that show promise.

The event will feature a welcome from Jerzy Bartosik, Head of Trade and Investment Promotion Section, Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London, and presentations from Steven Fleetwood, Head of Location Advisory EMEA, CBRE, Adrian Branny, General Director, Schneider Group Poland, and Alina Pszczolkowska, Senior Director Clinical Operations, AstraZeneca.

6 June 2017, 6pm onwards

Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London, 47 Portland Place, London, W1B 1JH
