Business - Innovations - Technology (BIT of WUT)

We are proud to present the intellectual potential of WUT’s students, graduates and employees in the new folder entitled “Business - Innovations – Technology”

Warsaw University of Technology has researchers working on a range of scientific topics which are explored in different areas and on different scale. Often the outcome of these helps with development of new technologies or everyday products to come into being.

Here we would like to present the diversity of topics which are of interest to WUT’s researchers.

What can you do with data taken from official announcements, information about movement of public transport vehicles, data from mobile networks or cameras? This is what preoccupies members of the VaVeL project, financed from the EU program Horizon 2020. The Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science (MiNI) of the Warsaw University of Technology is one of the partners of the project.
