Last week, the 8th European Economic Congress was held in Katowice, Poland. i3D participated in the congress by presenting some of its innovative projects. Besides the i3D team, there was strong Reinvent-representation with two Reinvent researchers present, Magdalena Rzeznik (currently seconded at i3D as part of the Reinvent project) and Joanna Bubala (formerly seconded at Reykjavik University and Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu – National-Louis University as part of the Reinvent project). Magdalena and Joanna made a presentation of the Reinvent project as a great example of an industry-academia collaboration.
