Report from the BUDMA Fair

BUDMA 2000

The Institute of Molecular Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences participated in this year's International Construction and Architecture Fair BUDMA (4-7 February 2020) as a part of The Polish Association of Centers for Technology Transfer (

Participation in this commercial fair was not only a completely new experience, but also a kind of experiment for us. The profile of our Institute, which mainly conducts basic research, seemed to exclude us from such events. Those four days spent at the fair have completely changed our perspective.
