Meeting with Ukrainian partners

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

In its headquarters SPCleantech held on 05.07.2018 a meeting with representatives of the start-up and cluster environment from Poland and Ukraine. Ukraine was represented by our partner, Nataly Veremeeva from Kyiv IT Cluster, (www.itcluster.kiev.ua/en), which we met during the EU High Level Dialogue visit in Kiev this year. On the Polish side, we hosted Marta Diana Koziarska from the Reaktor company (www.reaktorwarsaw.com) and Paweł Kulona from # OMGKRK-Krakow Startup Community (www.omgkrk.com).

The aim of the meeting was to establish direct contacts, cooperation and exchange of experience between partners. Kiev IT cluster is a very dynamic environment with many highly specialized IT companies and a rich environment of startups concentrated in co-working centers managed by the cluster.

At the end of this fruitful meeting, we have agreed on a number of joint initiatives using EU funds available both in Poland and in Ukraine for which we will jointly apply.
