Our report Talents, discoveries, innovations. How we used structural funds for science (2007-2013) is now available to read. The report provides a summary of the six Foundation programmes financed from the Operational Programme “Innovative Economy”.
These programmes added up to a budget of over 421 million PLN, 6 programmes supporting the various needs of people working in research, 448 individual beneficiaries, 1740 scholarship-recipients employed on their projects, 147 foreign researchers (including 104 doctoral students and 31 “postdocs”) working in Polish laboratories. In addition to the numerical figures and statistics concerning FNP programmes taking advantage of EU funds, our publication also features profiles of beneficiaries of each of the programmes. You can read about their groundbreaking research as well as how the FNP’s financial support helped them to spread their scientific wings.
Prof. Maciej Żylicz, President of the FNP Board, wrote in his introduction to the report, “When it embarked on the extremely demanding task of using EU structural funds for the needs of development of science in Poland, the Foundation adopted a simple philosophy: the priority is to support the individual careers of the most outstanding scholars, so investment in people. It is they who work for the successes of Polish science, as well as bringing long-term benefits for the national economy.”
