Digitalization under the closer look of science
The development of new technologies poses two key challenges for state institutions. First, building the tools of digital government. Second, to use the data collected and with it to improve public policies – including those in the area of health care.
Harnessing the power of digital tools and growing amounts of data will be one of the answers to emerging challenges in the health sector, such as pandemics, inequitable access to services, and inefficient and costly public programs. However, the capabilities of European countries in this regard vary.
During the seminar, Weronika Przecherska will analyze the factors that favor the construction of digital public services and dataification (e.g., clarity of the legal framework), the barriers to their development (e.g., lack of e‑identification tools), and the benefits of using data. The speaker will also present research findings on Estonia, a digital leader in public services. She will discuss the country’s solutions and the factors behind its success in digitizing public health services.
Comments on the study will be given by:
It deals with population aging and its consequences, as well as public finance, especially at the local level. In recent years, his interests have focused on local aspects of aging and smart city concepts as an attempt to respond to the challenges of an aging population.
He has been professionally involved in the IT industry for over 18 years. He has participated in IT projects in the roles of programmer, tester, administrator, implementer, consultant, designer, analyst, architect, project manager and currently IT business partner – thanks to which he has gained comprehensive industry experience. He specializes in adopting new digital science technology solutions (ML, AR, IoT, VR, RPA) to current organizational processes in the Pharma and Medical industries. The acquired practical knowledge allowed him to participate in the largest IT projects for IT companies and public institutions, carried out in Poland and abroad. Currently, in the role of Senior IT Business Partner, he works at Polpharma (one of the largest Polish pharmaceutical companies) supporting the organization on strategic, tactical and operational levels.
Topics of the next meetings:

The seminars are one of the activities associated with the „Initiative for Excellence – Research University” program (IDUB) PROGRAM. During the „Digitalization under the closer look of science” seminars will look at issues related to digital transformation, new technologies and innovative research methods.
The aim of the seminar is to stimulate interaction between young scientists and experts from the public and business sectors. During the series of debates young scientists will have the opportunity to present their research in the field of digitization and receive substantive support from experts. Through the initiative, we want to popularize their achievements and research.
„Digitalization under the closer look of science” is a platform for cooperation, integrating scientists from the University of Warsaw, dealing with digitalization. We want the meetings to create a friendly environment for exchanging and sharing the latest knowledge, but also for transferring specific competencies in processing, analyzing and using data and experimenting with new research methods.
