Poland. We look for new, unconventional solutions in our daily work. We treat

development are the key to achievement of success for us. We have decided to
take up actions aimed at gaining innovative projects which in the future will
support and distinguish our company’s activities. The areas and issues which
arouse our interest mainly encompass Energy, Industry 4.0, technological

Combination of experience and production environment of ANWIL along with young,
creative entities guarantees that optimal, and first of all interesting and
unconventional solutions will be devised - said Agnieszka Żyro, the President
of ANWIL S.A. Management Board.
The idea of both acceleration programs includes searching for innovative
concepts amongst the solutions offered by young technological businesses,
meeting the challenges identified by enterprises experienced in the market and
in business, such as for instance ANWIL S.A. The aim of the cooperation of the
involved entities is to additional specify and develop a dedicated business
model with the support of experienced mentors and advisers. Such a cooperation
model supports the process of building relations between large companies and
start-ups, at the same time guaranteeing flexibility and relatively short time
limits for development of dedicated solutions by young firms, as well as
supporting further development of start-ups. Considerable organizational and
financial potential of big companies is also an asset as far as performance of
open innovation programs is concerned, for optimal implementation of developed
Finalization of the first pilot program, within the framework of the
programs implemented at ANWIL, is planned for the first quarter of 2021.
