Research & Education

We believe in science, education, and the power of cooperation. Therefore, as part of the 8March Foundation, we try to involve various environments in each of the projects in order to develop innovative solutions.

We deal with the ecological and social transformation of historic buildings. The developed solutions will always be available in order to conduct scientific research and analyze their impact on the environment. We make every effort to ensure that the local community also participates in project activities. On the one hand, it can be done through public consultations. It can also take the form of educational activities, competitions, and meetings with scientists, entrepreneurs, and social activists involved in the project.

The Innovation Manor project aims to create a sustainable, inclusive, aesthetic space that connects the rural and urban environment around the idea of ​​lifelong learning, innovation, and well-being.

We want to take full advantage of the rural location of the facility, take advantage of the ethos of slow life and closeness with nature, and supplement it with the comfort of contact with technology and innovations coming from the surrounding large cities, all supported by local products and materials.

Our main goals are:

  • recruiting local staff and team leaders to work at the Innovation Court, conducting training, and engaging them in the promotion of our values

  • developing the skills and knowledge of local entrepreneurs employed in the reconstruction of the housing estate with the use of the latest technologies

  • opening the monument to local events, celebrations, and official activities of local authorities, outdoor events such as concerts or summer movies

  • equipping the site for educational activities and the development of digital skills;

  • providing space for teamwork

  • engaging partners from the world of science, business, and culture to be part of the community

  • focusing on well-being by facilitating access to culture, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, interculturalism, open minds, etc.

We focus on the cooperation of various environments to operate in the spirit of the New European Bauhaus.

We are very happy to inform you about the long-term partnership with the Rzeszów University of Technology, which we will work together with on the implementation of the Innovation Manor concept.
