Ladies and Gentlemen, On this page we will share with you current and interesting studies on the broadly understood scientific and economic sphere published by business and science people operating in the network of our cluster. Our goal will also be to post here information on interesting start-ups, technological and implementation ideas, as well as cluster projects that could inspire cooperation and business activities. The quarterly magazine will also contain articles for scientists from our universities and analyzes of the current economic situation.

This volume was prepared on the basis of a reprint of the monograph of Zdzisław Grot "Hipolit Cegielski (1813-1868)" published in 1980 as part of the series "Prominent Wielkopolanie" under the auspices of the Greater Poland Cultural Society, which agreed to its use, and the University of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.

As part of the monographic series of the Library of Polish Science and Technology, the edition of the current volume was preceded by an introduction by prof. Rafał Dobek (UAM), and was also enriched with original fragments of works of authorship and related to the life and activity of Hipolit Cegielski and available iconography.

Fortieth anniversary of the death of Eugeniusz Kwiatkowski prompts reflection on the life and work of this man. Kwiatkowski was part of the last, most strict political leadership of the pre-September Republic of Poland and was one of the greatest economic activists in the entire history of Poland. The creator of Gdynia and the Polish commercial fleet, Moscice and factories of the Warsaw Industrial District, COP and Stalowa Wola - during eight years of work in the government he managed to change the face of Polish land, integrate internally and strengthen the external young independent state. He was an economic visionary: his plans for the country's development before the war reached the mid-1950s. After the war, he became a pioneer in developing the new Polish coast. There were few economic activists in the history of Poland who, with all the critics and doubts raised at that time, would enjoy such widespread recognition during their lifetime. At the same time, Kwiatkowski was the Great Link: his life combined Galician autonomy with the economy of the Kingdom of Poland, an independent state and its independent economy with Poland conquered by Moscow, the PRL with the diaspora of post-war emigration. Let's add to this his Renaissance versatility of interests, resulting in dozens of books and articles, including impressive, still not yet rated syntheses from the history of science and economics. Kwiatkowski was one of the most interesting figures of the Polish history of the 20th century, a real "man-Poland" of recent times.

"The construction of the COP was undoubtedly one of the greatest achievements of pre-war Poland. The scale of effort and effects is amazing and amazing. The number of industrial investments created in just a few months, modernizations in existing plants, reconstruction of factories, etc. This is a real economic miracle. Within the framework of the COP 22 armament factories, a copper refinery in Tarnobrzeg, the Jasło - Sandomierz - Ostrowiec - Starachowice gas pipeline and further, the Mościce - Starachowice high voltage line and the largest in the COP Southern Works in Stalowa Wola, but this is only a part of the economic successes of the Second Polish Republic. The industrial production growth rate in Poland under the four-year plan was record-breaking across Europe. "

Thanks to the practical experience of Janusz Sobieraj and the literature materials he has collected, an interesting book has been created that defines the concept of economic strategy, i.e. sets out a look at the economic future, uses the experience of many foreign entrepreneurs, and facilitates making decisions in the economy. Particularly interesting are: fragments of Toyota's global vision, examples of Chenn Brothers and Maspex, presentation of various concepts of strategies and strategic pitfalls, characterization of strategies in opposition to the needs of industry development, comparison of examples of good and bad strategies - this is the experience of Packard, description of this strengths and weaknesses of Sony's prepared strategy. The fourth industrial revolution was also characterized, various economic trends were presented, examples of Google and Apple were developed, strategic examples in the automotive industry were presented (General Motors, Chrysler, Ford Motor Company), strategy design in the area of information technologies and new digital technologies was described.
