MIM Solutions as part of Business Advisory Group for Global Gateway fund that aims to allocate 300 billion euros on sustainable and health projects
MIM Solutions sp. z o.o. will represent Poland in the Global Gateway Business Advisory Group. The company from Warsaw has joined the prestigious group of advisors to the European Commission alongside giants such as Siemens, Orange, Nokia, and Veolia. Global Gateway is a European Union program aimed at sustainable development. Within its framework, the Commission supports sustainable investments by EU companies in other parts of the world. The programme mission is to narrow the global investment gap worldwide, especially in light of the recent Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. So far the Global Gateway program includes investments like: electrification in Madagascar, the construction of fiber-optic networks in Algeria, and an undersea power cable connecting Tunisia to Italy. Global Gateway has also contributed to the development of a green carbon certificate program targeting Colombia’s primarily indigenous farming population. The goal of this new strategy is to seek a transformational impact in the digital, climate and energy, transport, health, and education and research sectors.
As emphasized by Piotr Wygocki, co-founder of MIM Solutions, the most significant change now concerns the level of funding. The 300 billion euros in this edition of the program are ten times more than before.
“We are proud that we will be able to share our knowledge and support the European Commission in implementing the Global Gateway strategy. Our specialization is Artificial Intelligence (AI), which plays a crucial role in democratizing access to highly specialized services worldwide,” – says Piotr Wygocki.
The list of new members of the Advisory Group was announced on September 18 during the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Summit in New York by the EU Commissioner for International Partnerships, Jutta Urpilainen. It includes 60 members and 10 observers, representing European companies and business associations.
The Commission conducted an open call for this group for the next three-year term, with the requirement that the company be based within the EU. The Warsaw-based company, managed by Urszula Sankowska and Piotr Wygocki, applied and was selected, primarily due to its expertise in the field of AI. The first regular meeting of the Advisory Group took place on September 27, 2023.
“Our company implements medical solutions based on artificial intelligence in global markets. Therefore, we have a good understanding of the needs of our partners outside the EU and the necessity to collaborate with them. This is an opportunity for us to support the global healthcare initiatives of the Commission and address challenging issues such as infertility treatment,” — says Urszula Sankowska, co-CEO of MIM Solutions.
The Advisory Group will also play a key role during the Global Gateway Forum, which will take place in Brussels under the leadership of Ursula von der Leyen on October 25-26, 2023.
“ Global Gateway is the EU’s contribution to narrowing the global investment gap worldwide. It offers sustainable investments in the prosperity and security of our partners as well as for Europe. To further scale up the Global Gateway flagship projects, we need both public and private resources. The Global Gateway Business Advisory Group will help us to work closer together and deliver faster on the green and digital transitions, boosting the economy of our partners and the EU.” – says European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen.
We are honoured by this recognition, thank you!
