Joanna Szypulska – new broker of innovation in Bio-Talent

Since the beginning of December we have a new broker of innovation. She graduated the University of Economic Sciences in Poznań and finished post graduate studies of Management at the Poznań University of Technology. For many years she worked in the administration of the Poznan University of Technology. Competent in management and B2B and international contacts, she was chosen from the large group of candidates to boost the commercial part of the project.
We welcome you and wish good luck, Joanna!
