The Law on Higher Education and Science signed by the President will enter into force on October 1 this year. But the changes in the functioning of universities will be introduced gradually. Doctoral colleges will appear from the academic year 2019/2020, and new evaluation results will follow in 2021.
The 14th edition of the Popularizer of Science contest will start in mid-August. Science promoters will compete for prizes in five categories: Scientist, Animator, Team, Institution and Media. A novelty in the regulations is the possibility of nominating winners of previous editions.
We are planning to issue more than 20 regulations to the Constitution for Science by the end of the year, Deputy Minister of Science Piotr Müller told PAP. Consultations on several important regulations - including those concerning the principles of evaluation and division of fields of science - are expected to start as soon as the law is signed by the president.
The Senate passed the Law on Higher Education and Science (Law 2.0) with four amendments and its introductory provisions without amendments. This means that Law 2.0 returns to the Sejm. The two laws reform higher education and introduce major changes in the functioning of universities.
