NanoBioMedical Centre

NanoBioMedical Centre (NBMC) was set up in 2011 by Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan in partnership with Poznań University of Medical Sciences, Poznań University of Life Sciences and Poznań University of Technology. It is a multidisciplinary research and education centre focused in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The main goal of NBMC scientific activity is to foster nanotechnology development and its application in different research areas, especially in biology, medicine and in material sciences.


MTP Group       

Poznań Congress Center, the integrated part of Grupa MTP, is a modern congress, exhibition, sports and entertainment centre with more than 4,000 conference seats, a VIP area and a space dedicated to exhibitors and sponsor booths. The showpiece of the Congress Center is the Earth Hall, considered by experts as one of the best large concert halls in Poland in terms of acoustics. The hall can accommodate nearly 1,800 people, and thanks to the ingenuity of designers it can be arranged with various layouts that work for scientific congresses, concerts or sporting events.



Poznań, the capital of the region of Greater Poland (Polonia Maior, Polish: Wielkopolska), is inhabited by over half a million well organized, economically minded and hospitable people. The city is located at the crossroad of the largest European transportation routes connecting Moscow with Berlin, Paris and Madrid and also Budapest and Prague with the Baltic coast and further on with the Scandinavian Peninsula. This location of the city, which favours the coexistence of many nationalities and cultures, was conducive to Poznań being an important meeting place in Europe.
