The next part was a panel devoted to the challenges and opportunities in cooperation in the implementation works. While participating in the panel, Dr. Andrzej Czapczuk spoke, for example, about barriers that may occur in the science-business relationship and how to deal with them, as well as about the prospects that arise in such cooperation.
