Additional qualifications

Industry track record:

  • M. Kujawinska has established a track record in industry by leading in the period 1993-2008 the Foundation of Promotion and Implementation of Optical Techniques which was bridging the research at WUT and demand from industry and companiesand companies. She was involved in several bilateral collaborations and projects with companies such as BIAS, Hewlett Packard, Bosh, Volkswagen, British Gas, Tritem, Vigo Systems.

    Recently she has lead within EU Structural Funds the project MONIT through which she had implemented several measurement and strain monitoring systems in electric power plants and heat distribution stations and several building companies in Poland.

    Through her activity as vice-president of ETP Photonics21 and Polish Photonics Technology Platform she is involved in creating together with industry the fundaments of PPP in photonics sector. She also initiated founding of two innovative technologies SMEs: Smarttech Ltd. and KSM Vision Ltd.
