The New Europe 100 project, where SAC was one of the nominating partners, celebrates innovators from Central and Eastern Europe. The list of 100 challengers, which can be found on the homepage of the project, contains 28 people from Poland, 16 from Slovakia and 14 from the Czech Republic. In total, 15 countries are represented on the list.

The organisers are a Polish journal Res Publica together with Google and the Visegrad Fund and in cooperation with Financial Times, which published a very positive article about the region. It dispels several myths still surrounding Central and Eastern Europe in the eyes of the Western European public.
