The Foundation for Polish Science (FNP) would like to invite scientists from Poland and abroad to an information meeting on the International Research Agendas programme, scheduled to take place on 8 September in the Foundation’s office in Warsaw.

The programme provides an opportunity to create research organisations in Poland (innovative centres of excellence), where outstanding scientists (irrespective of their nationality) would conduct quality research programmes and pursue R&D activities in order to solve a specific global scientific challenge. We would like to extend a warm welcome to scientists from Poland and abroad as well as to representatives of research institutions interested in pursuing international research agendas in Poland to an information meeting about the programme. During the meeting, we are going to present the programme, the opportunities and the application procedure in the next competition, as well as information on drafting, submission and evaluation of applications. The call for applications is scheduled for the beginning of September.

The meeting will be held in English. The number of participants is limited. In order to register, please send an e-mail to: The registration will close not later than September 6.
