The Foundation has announced the results of the 11th and final edition of the VENTURES* programme supporting research projects with application in the economy, carried out by graduate students, graduates, and PhD students from all over Poland. The call for applications yielded 157 responses. A total of 26 young researchers qualified for stage two of the competition and had meetings with the review panel. Taking into account the panel’s recommendations, the Foundation Board selected 10 beneficiaries, who will receive personal stipends of 3,000 zlotys (PhD students) and 1,500 zlotys (graduates and graduate students) per month as well as research grants of up to 35,000 zlotys per year.
The beneficiaries of the programme’s last edition will receive a total of more than 1.2 million zlotys to complete their innovative projects.
