Press breakfasts

The press breakfast series was created to create a space for dialogue with journalists, both for our experts and for us – an entity building a bridge between science and the outside world.

The meetings are an opportunity to meet and talk with Experts from the University of Warsaw, who in their scientific research analyze various important issues from the sphere of economic and social development, both in Poland and around the world.

Meetings organized as part of the Press Breakfast series are addressed only to accredited journalists.

If you are willing to participate in the Press Breakfasts, please contact the coordinator:
