In April 2022, I received the prestigious Fulbright-Schuman Award 2022/2023, which allowed me to conduct research as a Visiting Graduate Student in cooperation with prof. David G. Victor, head of the Center for Global Transformation and Deep Decarbonization Initiative at the University of California, San Diego (USA).
Research internship (as part of the conducted pilot studies) titled “Development of innovative cluster structures and infrastructural projects related to hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as an opportunity for the regional energy transformation of Japan’s Fukuoka and Yamanashi prefectures.” Source of funding: The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) PROM program.
Study visit and scientific consultations as part of research cooperation with prof. Dominik Möst, Head of the Department of Energy Economics at TU Dresden. Funding was obtained from the university’s INTEREKON program.
I had the great pleasure of coordinating and moderating, together with Alicja Kozak, the event entitled “Conference on the Future of Europe”.
From April 2022, I have the great honor of joining the Intercollegiate research team that will be looking for the key challenges that the Polish economy has to face in the third decade of the 21st century.
The course offered a systematic foundational knowledge of the theoretical building blocks of international business research, the most updated debates on theories and methods, and an overview of topics and areas of research in the field. The ultimate goal was to develop an ability to identify opportunities for future research. The course was organized into two parts. The first part focused on different theoretical perspectives. In the second part, state-of-the-art research on specific topics and areas ware discussed.
On January 14, 2022, the “Young Scientists” competition at the Wroclaw University of Economics and Business was resolved. I was pleased to receive the postive decision about the employment as a Research Assistant from February 15, 2022 at the Department of International Economic Relations.
As a member of the university’s Asia-Pacific Research Center, I had a great opportunity to present the results of my latest research. After many months of virtual scientific events, I felt extremely excited to participate in a hybrid conference, during which some of the speeches (including mine) were made in the university recording studio in the InQube building.
Our research presented a review of the new structural economics (NSE) assumptions in the context of an impressive development of the Chinese photovoltaic cells industry in 2000-2019. Furthermore, we aimed to study and illustrate the impact of the industrial policy measures and the implemented state interventions on the development of the studied leading-edge industry from the perspective of revealed comparative advantage considering the theoretical assumptions of the NSE.
The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is one of the most significant infrastructural projects worldwide and a chance for the Chinese photovoltaic cells industry to scale up and expand into new markets. From 2000 to 2019, this industry became a global leader in capacity, export, employment and innovative technology implementation.
