We had the honor to host the President of Poland Bronisław Komorowski in our company today. The main aim of the visit was to familiarize the President with innovative activities in R&D in VIGO.

Bronisław Komorowski was particularly interested in VIGO actions supporting the areas of safety and health. VIGO presented the products which had applications in the military industry, environment protection and medicine.

Chairman of VIGO Adam Piotrowski had the opportunity to show the President the whole technological line the infrared detectors are manufactured on.

The President assured that such high-tech companies like VIGO Photonics SA, would be supported by the new act on innovation which he has submitted to the Parliament’s discussion. According to this act the companies which invest in innovation should be subsidized through tax incentives.

‘The company belongs to the group of Polish companies, which are decidedly pro-innovative and thanks to its technological advances it achieved great international success; VIGO has manufactured the detector which is now being used by the famous rover on Mars’- said Bronislaw Komorowski.

The President congratulated Adam Piotrowski and wished further success in the creation of Polish innovative economy.
