The Supply Chain of the Future – Intelligent and Sustainable Supply Chain Management
Title of the session: 

The Supply Chain of the Future – Intelligent and Sustainable Supply Chain Management

Contents of the session:

The world begins to work differently. We see a different kind of supply chain emerging. We envision a supply chain of the future:

  • The supply chain will be an incredibly complex and dynamic. Integration of sustainability principles will increase complexity. The supply chain emerge as a major business tool that can help control costs, manage risks and make profit in a fully responsible manner.
  • Information will increasingly be machine-generated (instrumented).
  • The whole supply chain will be connected. The supply chains take interaction (with customers, suppliers and IT systems in general). We see a more holistic view of the supply chain, this extensive interconnectivity will also facilitate collaboration on a massive scale  (interconnected).

A supply chain will be capable of learning and making some decisions by itself, without human involvement. For example, it might reconfigure supply chain networks when disruptions occur. Advanced analytics and modeling will help evaluate alternatives against set of risks and constraints (intelligent)

Wrocław – European Capital of Culture 2016

As the largest city of Lower Silesia, Wrocław is the region’s administrative, economic and cultural capital. Standing on twelve islands on the Oder river and its four tributaries, it is often called the Venice of the North. It is a city with a thousand years of history: it passed from the hands of Czech kings under the rule of Austria, and then Prussia; finally, after the Second World War, it became a part of Poland. Today, the heritage of the past intertwines with modernity. As a city open to new ideas and challenges, Wrocław has gained a reputation as dynamic and innovative. It boasts a broad cultural and entertainment offer, and it is considered to be one of the most business-friendly cities to boot. Its atmosphere attracts people from all around the country and the world. It is the visitors who say Wrocław is the place that must be seen first and foremost when coming to Poland.

Welcome to Wrocław!

Tourist attractions

Wrocław’s monuments can be admired in a variety of ways: while taking an individual walk or a guided tour, or while travelling by an electric car, a bike, a historic tram or a cab. It is also worthwhile seeing the city view from a boat on the Oder river or from one of the observation towers. Apart from exploring Wrocław’s history, we invite you to search for its smallest citizens.

Dwarfs are Wrocław’s pride: the citizens have already set up more than 300 dwarf statuettes. They have blended in so well with the cityscape that few question their origin or number anymore. Additional information on dwarfs can be found on the dedicated website:

Ostrów Tumski (Cathedral Island) is the oldest part of Wrocław. Surrounded by the waters of the Oder, the former stronghold which gave rise to the city comprises beautiful architectural monuments. The most impressive among them are the Gothic St. John the Baptist’s Cathedral and the Holy Cross Church, restored after the Second World War. The Archdiocesan Museum’s collection includes the Book of Henryków, a unique document containing the first sentence written in Polish, inscribed in 2015 on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

The Market Square is the heart of Wrocław, an entertainment centre full of pubs and restaurants, throbbing with life at any time of day or night. The centre of the square is built up with the Cloth Hall and the City Hall, a unique monument of Gothic and Renaissance architecture, one of a kind in the whole of Europe. It also houses the oldest restaurant in Europe: Piwnica Świdnicka. In front of the City Hall’s eastern façade, there is a pillory, and in front of the western one, a monument to the playwright Aleksander Fredro brought from Lviv. The market square is bordered by historic burgher tenements, banks and department stores.

Ulica Świdnicka is the most renowned promenade and historic shopping street in Wrocław. It is here that we can see the neo-classical building of the Wrocław Opera House and the nearby Wrocław Puppet Theatre. The street also leads to popular entertainment spots: the Musical Theatre ‘Capitol’, Dolnośląskie Centrum Filmowe (Lower Silesia Film Centre) and pubs along ulica Bogusławskiego. Another attraction worth seeing is an unconventional Monument of an Anonymous Passerby at the intersection of ulica Świdnicka and ulica Piłsudskiego. It is also here that the showpiece of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 has been located: the information point Barbara at the site of a former famous Wrocław bar.

The National Forum of Music is the newest concert hall building in the very centre of Wrocław. The modern building, with acoustics equal to the best in the world, houses four halls: the main hall with a capacity of 1800 and three chamber halls with 800 places in total. NFM has already had many renowned artists among its guests, and concert tickets sell out very quickly.

The Royal Palace with a baroque garden is the seat of the modern Historical Museum. Visitors can discover the city’s history by seeing the exhibition “1000 years of Wrocław”, as well as explore the royal apartments.

Connecting ulica Kiełbaśnicza and ulica Odrzańska, there is a small street paved with fieldstone: Jatki (butchers’ stalls), where poultry and meat from the municipal slaughterhouse were sold since the 12th century. Nowadays, it houses the city’s artists’ ateliers, painting and weaving galleries. A reminder of Jatki’s old function is an unusual Monument of the Butchery Animals.

The District of Four Denominations is a unique place, encompassing the area of ulica Kazimierza Wielkiego, ulica św. Antoniego, ulica Pawła Włodkowica and ulica św. Mikołaja. Its name refers to the fact that there are four temples of different denominations in close proximity to each other: an Orthodox church, a Roman Catholic church, a Protestant church and a synagogue. The area is especially lively in the evenings, as local discos, cafés and pubs attract crowds of people.

The University of Wrocław is situated in the largest baroque complex of the city, formed by the former Jesuit academy and church. It is the oldest alma mater in Wrocław. The main building houses the Museum of the University of Wrocław, which holds the pearl of the Lower Silesian baroque, the Aula Leopoldina, and the Oratorium Marianum, a hall in which concerts have been taking place for 200 years. The Mathematical Tower houses an old astronomical observatory.

Nearby, in a baroque building of a former cloister, the National Ossoliński Institute has had its seat since 1946. The centrepieces of its collection include the manuscript of the Polish national epic “Pan Tadeusz” by Adam Mickiewicz, engravings by Artur Grottger and Rembrandt, a denarius of Mieszko I (the first historical Polish ruler), a seal of king John I Albert and medals of the last Jagiellonians.

The former artisanal district, Nadodrze, has been changing in recent years. Tourists come here attracted by restored façades, renovated courtyards, parks and greens, murals, and in particular by the unique atmosphere of cafés, galleries, artist ateliers, author’s boutiques and other places which offer workshops, discussions, film showings and meetings with interesting people.

The Panorama of Racławice is a unique depiction of the Battle of Racławice. 15 metres tall and 114 metres long, the painting by Jan Styka and Wojciech Kossak is housed in a specially constructed rotunda. The ticket to the Panorama of Racławice also grants admission to the permanent exhibitions in the National Museum.

The Botanical Garden was founded in 1811. Its plants, of which there are more than 11,500 species and varieties, come from natural habitats and botanical gardens from all around the world. On the garden’s premises, there is the oldest and the largest Museum of Natural History in Poland.

Szczytnicki Park is the oldest and one of the largest parks in the city. Its main attraction is the Japanese Garden, created in 1913. Szczytnicki Park with its arboretum, beautiful rhododendron groves, a rose garden and the Japanese Garden has been entered in the register of art monuments.

The Centennial Hall (Hala Stulecia) is one of the most significant works of 20th century architecture. It was designed by the eminent architect Max Berg and constructed in 1913. The early modernistic domelike edifice of reinforced concrete has a vault with a diameter 1.5 times greater than the Roman Pantheon with only 42% of its weight. It has been extended with a congress centre and hosts both regional and international congresses as well as trade, sports and cultural events. In 2006, it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Its history can be explored in the Discovery Centre. Other attractions worth seeing include the Four Domes Pavilion and the Plastic Panorama of Old Lviv.

A multimedia fountain is just next to the Hall. With a surface of 1 ha, it is one of the largest fountains in Europe. Its basin contains 300 water nozzles of different types, able to spurt water up to 40 metres, and 3 fire nozzles. There are also 800 light points on the basin’s bottom. All of these elements contribute to free multimedia shows to the rhythm of music, accompanied by projections and laser lights. The shows’ programme can be found on the website In winter the fountain turns into a skating rink.

The Wrocław Zoological Garden is the oldest and the largest (in terms of species variety) zoological garden in Poland. On its premises, there are a couple of historic buildings from the 19th century, such as the bears’ tower, the elephants’ pavilion and the apes’ pavilion. The newest attractions include the Africarium: a unique complex, with few equals in the world, presenting the aquatic environment of Africa.

The Wrocław Partynice Racecourse was opened in 1907. Nowadays, it hosts the most important horse races, such as Oaks: a race of three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. The event is even more splendid thanks to ladies in fancy hats.

The Wrocław Stadium, built for the EURO 2012 European football championships, is the most modern multi-purpose structure in Lower Silesia. It has a distinctive lantern shape and can seat 42,771 spectators. It hosts various sports and artistic events.

The Oder river, its tributaries and channels make Wrocław a unique city of 12 islands. The riverbanks and islands are joined by more than 100 bridges and footbridges. One of the oldest ones is the Piaskowy bridge, mentioned in 12th-century documents. The most famous one, however, is the Grunwaldzki bridge, formerly called the Emperor’s bridge, owing its popularity to the original suspended structure and unique location. In 2004, the Millennium Bridge was built, while in 2011, the Rędziński bridge, which is the longest single-pylon cable-supported bridge in Poland and the largest, in terms of surface, bridge of reinforced concrete in the world. Other unique bridges include the Tumski bridge, also known as the lovers’ bridge, and mostek Pokutnic (the bridge of Penitents), the highest situated bridge in Wrocław.
