Scientists from the University of Casimir the Great in Bydgoszcz (UKW) won gold medals at the Global Invention Forum 2019 in Limassol in Cyprus for their inventions worked out by inter-university research teams.
The inventions include a shredder for plastics developed by Dr Eng. Marek Macko, Prof. Eng. Józef Flizikowski, Michał Bogdański, Eng. Mariusz Lenc (University of Technology and Life Sciences in Bydgoszcz) and wheelchair inner pad for patients with periarticular cirrhosis developed by Dr Eng.
