The Polish biotech industry has never been in a better position and this should be no mystery to anyone. The value of the investment in the Polish biotech market is growing steadily, both in terms of public funding and international capital, with big pharma giants eyeing Poland. Owing to a sizeable pool of talents, Poland is able to demonstrate its research potential and the current developments suggest that there is still plenty of room for growth. If the current trends are maintained, we may say with absolute certainty that the future is bright.


With this panel, we would like to inspire you to discover new career opportunities in the biotech and Medtech world.


Session leader: Karolina Jarosińska, ExecMind/Founder and Managing Director


The session is led by ExecMind - Life Science Executive Search company focused on the recruitment of top scientists and scientific leaders in global biotech and Medtech industries.
