What
we do

HumanTech Center is the only research center in Poland that comprises both social and technological innovations, and the only center of its kind operating at a university, which specializes in social sciences and humanities.

Research goals

Our goal is to bring together the disciplines of technology and humanities, while focusing on people and their needs. We believe that technology should serve people, and not vice versa, hence our name – HumanTech (formerly Center for Innovation). We are proponents of a transdisciplinary approach. Together with technologists, engineers, computer and information sciences, and business professionals we develop innovative solutions and enter our projects in competitions, such as “Innovation Vouchers”, a funding scheme provided by the Polish Development Fund Group, and “Fast Track”, organized by the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR).

Technology, Humanities, and Social Sciences

We partner with organizers of many conferences and our experts often speak at various events focused on the links between technology, humanities and social sciences. Our expertise derives from research, which guarantees reliable input at every phase of collaborative projects.

We invite businesses, community organizations, researchers, and entrepreneurs to work with us.
