- The agreement is part of the implementation of the Lodz University of Technology strategic development policy as regards the University's cooperation with its business environment. It is really meaningful in view of the new evaluation procedure introduced by the recent statutory act regulating higher education and it has a direct impact on the value of grants awarded to the University - prof. Sławomir Wiak, TUL's Rector said. - We particularly appreciate our mutual commitment to carrying out joint research projects and transferring new technologies from the University.
