About Horizons

Association for Innovation and Technology Transfer Horyzonty is a non-profit organization from Rzeszow. We have been operating since 2001. We are guided by the idea and mission of involvement in the development and promotion of innovation in southeastern Poland. The association brings together people interested in the development of new technologies.  

Over the decades of the association's existence, we have implemented a number of projects We obtained funding for them from, among others:

   International Visegrad Fund,
   Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Poland Development Cooperation,
   Ministry of Science and Higher Education (now Ministry of Education and Science),
   Fund for Non-Governmental Organizations under the Swiss-Polish Cooperation Program.
   Interreg Program Poland-Belarus-Ukraine

During our more than 20 years of activity, we have carried out a number of activities related to, among others, support for democracy, biodiversity, energy efficiency and promotion of entrepreneurship, as well as the topics of astronomy and artificial light pollution.

A very important part of our daily activities is our ongoing cooperation with schools in the Podkarpackie region in the field of education. We conduct educational workshops and show how to change our environment with innovative solutions. We also show how modern solutions affect the environment. We organize competitions for the youngest, which are designed to combine educational values with creative activity.   

We also conduct publishing activities. As part of our projects, we issue scientific publications on related topics. They are available in print or electronic versions (in PDF format).  

Renewable energy sources are an important part of our activities. In 2014, we built a photovoltaic power plant in Cieszanów near Lubaczów. It is located on a plot of 4.5 hectares.

As part of the activities carried out by the association, we conduct consultations of innovative projects, trainings and implement national and international projects. We invite all willing people to cooperate with us! Do you have an idea for a project in line with our activities? Get in touch with us!
