Visita a la Universidad de Wroclaw, en Polonia

Poland, 12 March 2013.- Chairman Emilio Botín strengthened the partnership that the Bank has maintained –through Santander Universities Global Division– with the University of Wroclaw since 2011. Over the course of his visit to Poland, he attended the opening of the Santander Collection at the National Museum in Wroclaw. The agreement with the University of Wroclaw was signed by Marek Bojarski, rector of the academic institution, and Emilio Botín, chairman of Banco Santander. CEO of Zachodni Bank WBK, Mateusz Morawiecki, also attended the ceremony, among others.

Chairman Emilio Botín said, “[The Bank appreciates] the opportunity to collaborate with one of Poland’s top universities. We are delighted by our new collaboration with the University of Wroclaw, a nationally and internationally renowned academic institution famed for its strength and the relevance of its scientific research in various fields.”

Under the new agreement, the University of Wroclaw will participate in various initiatives sponsored by Banco Santander, through Santander Universities Global Division, including joint training programmes with reputable institutions like Harvard University, UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), Brown University, and the National University of Singapore, among others.

Marek Bojarski affirmed that support for scientific research is a very important component in the long-term collaboration between the University of Wroclaw and the Universidad de Arequipa in Peru. ”The financial assistance provided to conduct excavations will contribute to an awareness of the region’s history, and the exchange of experiences between the two universities will enhance understanding in a field of common research. On behalf of the University of Wroclaw, I want to express my gratitude to chairman Emilio Botín for understanding the importance of scientific research and for supporting this very important initiative,” the rector concluded. 

”In Poland, Santander Universities collaborates with 35 academic institutions that participate in global programmes organised by the top colleges in the United States and maintains contact with the more than 1,020 universities with which the Bank collaborates. This is the 10th agreement signed by Santander Universities, under the terms of which Bank Zachodni WBK will support the institution’s archaeological project in addition to other initiatives. Last year, Bank Zachodni WBK launched 26 similar projects to promote mobility and entrepreneurial initiative among students and graduates, and to conduct unique research and scholarship projects according to the individual needs of the different universities,” Mateusz Morawiecki said.

Banco Santander will also provide support for some of the university’s other activities, such as the excavations in Peru, in the Sama, Tambo and Majes-Camaná regions, the goal of which is to provide a better understanding of the archaeology, ethnology, and history of these areas.

These initiatives are in addition to the numerous archaeological projects sponsored by the Bank around the world, such as Atapuerca (Spain), Luxor (Egypt) and Copán (Honduras), organised by academic institutions like Harvard, Granada, Burgos, Tubingen, Brown University, and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
