In June the Engineering Design Center was invited to participate in the National Debate about Poland’s work-force organized by Puls Biznesu. The debate took place at the National Stadium in Warsaw and the discussion concentrated on issues regarding Poland’s aging situation, cooperation between business and universities to educate specialists currently needed on the market and the reform of the current unemployment offices. The panelists included leaders of major Polish companies and representatives of the government,  while EDC was represented in the debate by Marian Lubieniecki, EDC O&G Subsea Executive Manager.

On Tuesday June 24th Puls Biznesu published coverage of the event in the printed issue of the paper, as well as online. You can access the materials by clicking here (in Polish only).

Universities are slowly opening themselves to relations with business but a cultural breakthrough is still ahead of us. Business people cannot be perceived only as sponsors, whose role is limited to buying equipment. We need to be partners, whose needs are reflected in the curriculum and the teaching methods. This is the way to stop producing unemployable graduates.”
