Educational counselling with the best specialists in Poland and assistance in planning a career at the most prestigious universities in the country and abroad are just a few of the benefits they will receive through mentoring. The names of three scholarship holders from the 2nd edition of the programme – Jaromir Hunia, Jakub Wornbard and Milena Malcharek – were also announced during the gala.

The final gala of the 3rd edition of the ADAMED SmartUP programme took place on September 5, 2017 at the Copernicus Conference Centre. The ten winners of the main prize were selected during the event. They received a package of ten months of educational counselling – primarily mentor support for further development of their passion, tailored to the individual needs of each winner. They will have the opportunity to work with experts from both Poland and abroad. 

Representatives of the Scientific Council of the Programme and the Adamed Group Foundation Board awarded the prizes to the following pupils:

  • Wiktor Jaśniak from Solec Kujawski

‘Participating in the ADAMED SmartUP programme is a chance for its participants to take the first steps towards impressive academic careers. Our national experts and academic teachers will develop and implement tailor-made educational consultations that will take into account the interests and plans of the winners. Furthermore, the scholarship holders will receive financial support for further scientific development’, says Katarzyna Dubno, Adamed Group Foundation Board Member.

This year's winners started their adventure on the programme with an online text game called Scientific Survival. Fifty participants of an innovative camp, organised at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences and financed with EU funds, were selected from among 7,000 applications. Finally, after two weeks of theoretical and practical classes, ten of the most talented were chosen as winners of the main prize.
