THE 14TH IWIS HELD ONLINE ON OCTOBER 19TH TO 21ST
This year due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the 14th edition of the International Exhibition of Inventions, IWIS 2020, was held online from October 19th to 21st for worldwide participants.
The event was organized by the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers in cooperation with the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland and the International Federation of Inventors’ Association IFIA.
IWIS is Poland’s largest international exhibition dedicated to the promotion of invention and innovation. During the 14th edition, solutions were presented from more than 20 countries, including Taiwan, Thailand, Romania, Croatia, Ukraine, Moldova, Turkey, Malaysia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Vietnam, Canada, USA, Russia, and Poland. Inventors presented more than 250 solutions in various fields of science, which are a review of technical achievements, some of which have found their place in the industry, and partly waiting for implementation.
The main task of the International Exhibition of Inventions IWIS is to present the achievements of Polish scientists and inventors to national and foreign entrepreneurs and institutions. This exhibition creates the opportunity to establish commercial contracts for the implementation of innovations in the industry, which could also lead to the growth of the Polish economy. Another aim of IWIS is to promote the innovative attitude and innovation-based perception of the world among young people, which can be the motor for taking on new challenges.
In summary, the 14th International Warsaw Invention Show, IWIS 2020 (ONLINE edition), was a great success. Every year, the event attracts more and more exhibitors and visitors. IFIA hopes that the exhibition will result in several implementations of the presented inventions and innovations. And we congratulate all the winners.
