Boryszew ERG – a Boryszew Group member company – has established a long-term co-operation with the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin. It will offer student internships and the chance to conduct research together with the BORYSZEW ERG team and mass-produced innovative chemicals.
On 30 October, Boryszew ERG signed a long-term co-operation agreement with the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin.
“The agreement is multi-dimensional. On one hand, Marie Curie-Skłodowska University students from the reputable Faculty of Chemistry will have the opportunity to get internships in our facilities and this will surely be a starting point for their careers. On the other hand, we hope that students and our researchers will work on new and innovative products which will ultimately be implemented and mass-produced,” says Marlene Krohn, CEO of Boryszew ERG.
The company, together with the university, plans to use National Research and Development Centre funds.
“We want to make use of the maximum of grants from NRDC funds supporting researchers and entrepreneurs during their research,” Marlene Krohn says. ‘’This will help us achieve these ambitious projects which had been grounded due to the lack of budget,” Boryszew ERG CEO adds.
