Science and Technology Picnic PIK TECH


The event will honor celebration of the tenth anniversary of the “New Gliwice” Business and Education Center, which owes its “life” to the “Gliwice” Coal Mine. The fact that coal was once mined here, miners were preparing for work, and foremen handed out work is confirmed by the presence of restored buildings – waiting room and engine room as well as wagon with the last ton of coal. Today, it’s primarily a cradle of companies dealing with new technologies and we would like to invite you to this world!!!
