The Foundation for Polish Science is pleased to invite scientists from Poland and abroad to an information meeting on the International Research Agendas project (MAB), to take place on 29 October at the University of Warsaw Library at ul. Dobra 56/66.

The International Research Agendas project (MAB) is modelled on Teaming for Excellence project, announced by the European Commission as part of Horizon 2020.

MAB aims to achieve high-quality R&D work conducted by teams of outstanding scientists from Poland and abroad. Support within the project is offered to specialised and independent scientific units in Poland working on the implementation of international research agendas – original research & development programmes created in strategic collaboration with renowned scientific institutions from other countries. The objective of this support is to help to create specialised, world-class scientific units in Poland which employ the best global practices in identifying research programmes and themes, HR policy, R&D management, and commercialisation of the results of R&D activities.
