IWIS 2022 Report
16th edition of the International Exhibition of Inventions “IWIS 2022” was once again held ONLINE on October 17-19.
The event was organized by the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers in cooperation with the International Federation of Inventors’ Association IFIA.
The exhibition IWIS 2022 was held under the auspices of the Minister of Education and Science. Among the patronage of this year’s show were the European Association of Inventors (AEI), World Invention Intellectual Property Association WIIPA and the Polish Federation of Engineering Associations NOT.
IWIS is Poland’s largest international exhibition dedicated to the promotion of invention and innovation. During the 16th edition were presented solutions from 15 countries, including Canada, China, Croatia, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Malaysia, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Vietnam.
Inventors presented almost 300 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 awaiting for implementation.
Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers had the opportunity to organize this year’s exhibition IWIS which presented innovative solutions from more than 100 scientific entities (research institutes, colleges, and universities, also individual inventors). The International Jury awarded the exhibitors for their inventions following medals: gold, silver, and bronze.
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 creates the opportunity to establish commercial contracts for the implementation of innovations in the industry, which have contributed to the growth of the Polish economy. Another important aim of IWIS is to promote an innovative attitude and innovation-based perception of the world among young people, which can be the motor for taking on new challenges.
Members of the Jury of IWIS 2022 had the difficult task to select the best solution because each of them presented a very high substantive and technological level. All solutions were classified according to 12 different categories ranging from ecology and environmental protection, mechanics, electronics, energy to the medical solutions.
Finally, the Grand Prix IWIS 2022 went to Neurosphera Epilepsy, Neurology, and Psychiatry Center (Poland) and NEUROTERMINAL (Poland) for the inventions ICTAL – a cybernetic, multi-criteria system for epilepsy diagnosis and therapy recommendation using machine learning and rule-based algorithms and NEUROTERMINAL – a cloud-based scalable system for remote diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy as well as patient consultation and assistance implemented at Neurosphera Center.
The Best Foreign Invention IWIS 2022 went to King Abdulaziz Univeristy (Saudi Arabia) for the invention Harvesting Energy from Sand Temperature.
The Best Domestic Invention IWIS 2022 went to Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences, Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Science, Department of Food Chemistry and Biocatalysis (Poland) for the invention The series of 38 inventions concerning new flavonoid glycosides with potential antimicrobial activity.
World Competition of Chemical Inventions is a contest organized by the International Federation of Inventors’ Association IFIA and the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers. During this year’s exhibition, the 11th edition of the World Competition of Chemical Inventions has taken place.
The main prize of the 11th World Competition of Chemical Inventions went to Oil and Gas Institute – National Research Institute (Poland) for the invention Heat exchanger with a burner designed to burn hydrogen.
In summary, the 16th International Warsaw Invention Show IWIS 2022 (ONLINE edition) was a great success.
The event every year attracts more and more exhibitors and visitors. This year our online event was visited by almost 5000 visitors from 21 countries.
We hope that the exhibition will result in a number of implementations of the presented inventions and innovations.
Congratulations to all participants of the exhibition.
