By 2020, scientists from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków will build a supercomputer together with European partners. According to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, it will be 10 times faster than the fastest computer currently operating in Europe.
The future of computer science are quantum computers, which may allow to perform many tasks better, faster and cheaper, says Adam Glos, a PhD student at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Gliwice, who is working on such solutions.
Recycling of batteries - and the recovery of valuable rare earth metals from them - may become a Polish specialty within the framework of the EU battery project, says Jan Filip Staniłko, director in the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology.
