A lecture entitled: ‘Economics based on ignorance’ will be given by Marek Gajowniczek, Ericpol’s Programmes Director.
TED (technology, entertainment, design) is one of the most popular conferences in the world, which aims to promote innovative ideas. Every year during TED conferences in California representatives of various industries, who have a modern approach to the solution of existing problems, present their ideas. Lectures have been given by such speakers as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Al Gore, Gordon Brown and Elizabeth Gilbert.
TEDx Łódź 2012 is an independent one-day meeting under the TED licence organized by local enthusiasts. Participants of the conference will have an opportunity to watch TEDTalks – films from the TED conference – and listen to 15 invited speakers, including Marek Gajowniczek, PhD, Ericpol’s Programmes Director. During his lecture he will talk about cooperation between business and science.
‘The pace of economic development in Poland depends on the quality of the cooperation between business and science. This problem has been recognized, but we try to solve it by means of the information technology “copy-paste” method, which very often gives completely unexpected effects,’ emphasizes Marek Gajowniczek.
