3W Interdisciplinary Innovations Centre is growing stronger. Eleven new partners, including the Jagiellonian University


The new partners of 3W IIC are: Jagiellonian University, The Institute of Power Engineering – Research Institute, Bialystok University of Technology, Silesian University of Technology, Kielce University of Technology, Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute for Organisation and Management in Industry “Orgmasz”, Wroclaw Medical University, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Molecular Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The 3W Interdisciplinary Innovations Centre creates new opportunities for scientists to engage in real cooperation with business entities interested in the implementation of pro-environmental technologies and solutions. Considering the high competence of our scientists and the subject of their research related to the environment, energy and sustainable development, I do believe that the Jagiellonian University joining this initiative will also be beneficial for the economy as well as for our current and future partners,said prof. dr hab. Wojciech Macyk, Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry at the Jagiellonian University.

3W IIC strives to enhance cooperation between the world of business and the world of universities and scientists through, among others, creating curricula of studies and training courses related to 3W, as well as providing multi-faceted support in commercialising inventions and obtaining funds for 3W projects implementation, with special emphasis on areas of mutual interest.


Moreover, the 3W IIC’s role is to popularise the 3W Idea in world of science, business and scientific administration by organising, among others, seminars, scientific workshops and conferences.

‘On the one hand, we create a space for scientists to work together on projects outside their own organization, and on the other hand, we support entrepreneurs who need scientific facilities to bring new technologies onto the market. Our aim is to make the 3W Interdisciplinary Innovations Centre a place where science and business can inspire each other and cooperate, accelerate the transformation of scientific achievements into practical solutions for the whole society,’ said Adam Żelezik, 3W Department Director at BGK.

There are four working groups operating within 3W IIC composed of experts from the universities participating in the project. The energy, environmental, logistics groups focus on exploring the synergies between water, hydrogen and carbon. The legislative group analyses the existing regulations and legal standards, as well as research funding programmes that may support projects coordinated by 3W IIC in the future.

The 3W Interdisciplinary Innovations Centre was established in May 2022. Among the founders were eleven leading Polish universities, including technical ones, and the Łukasiewicz Research Network. Currently, the Centre brings together twenty-nine universities and research institutes.
