Dr Jakubczak graduated from the Institute of Optoelectronics of the Military University of Technology in Warsaw (MSc) and Czech Technical University in Prague (PhD).  He is an experienced R&D engineer and manager in the optoelectronics domain. He worked as a Deputy Project Manager at new R&D HiLASE Center in Czech Republic on innovative laser technologies for industry and as an Operations Director for the National Center for Research and Development. He cooperates with LaserLab Europe, MIT Enterprise Forum Poland, Polish Standardization Committee, investors and technological innovators.

Dr. Nawrat is a theoretical physicist, who devoted his professional life to advance the field of medical robotics and artificial organs. He pioneered research in artificial organs domain, especially heart valve prostheses and blood pumps (POLVAD) and created the Robin Heart surgical robot - first Polish and European telemanipulator for heart surgery. He developed the application of computer simulation in surgical planning and founded the International Society for Medical Robotics. He works in Medical University of Silesia Department of Cardiosurgery and Transplantology, Foundation of Cardiac Surgery Development as a director of Institute of Heart Prostheses and is a member of Biomechanics and Biomaterials sections of Polish Academy of Sciences.

Mr. Krajewski has his masters in Computer Science and Electronics from the Technical University of Wroclaw. He has shown that he can turn dreams into concrete projects with his personal story prompting him to set up CancerCenter.AI, which aims to improve the diagnosis of cancer. He does his own business (, and is involved in projects in the field of science and business. 

Dr. Kiwic is a young inventor and future doctor, who believes in the power of technology and medicine. In addition to his medical degree, he also has an additional qualification in neuroscience in which he obtained from the University of Glasgow. For the last couple of years he has been developing products in healthcare. Now he runs CardioCube, a game-changing medical artificial intelligence company helping cardiac patients
