During the FIR, we promote what is most important - promising opportunities for a good future, i.e. scientific research, technological and social innovations, development projects, industrial research and valuable local government initiatives - as well as their authors - innovators from different branches of the economy and fields of science - inspiring people, looking for opportunities for the development of their own activities, also in inter-industry, non-research cooperation. Meet in Uniejów with SDF participants who offer advice, financial solutions, research and valuable insights.

The event's program is unique nationwide - open to all stages of innovation and investment creation and market implementation. Eighty percent of the participants are people who are currently working on innovative projects that may reach the market in the future.
