On February 19 (the birthday of Nicolaus Copernicus) Poland celebrates a new holiday, Polish Science Day in recognition of the achievements of Polish scientists. Here is our list of highlights over the last few years.
The Polish Studies Centre has opened at one of the largest Russian universities. Last week, the centre hosted Dr. Paweł Libera from the Institute of History of the Polish Academy of Sciences, who gave the lecture 'Russian emigrants in Poland 1918–1939 in Polish historiography'.
The Polish Biobanking Network is looking for new units that could connect with it. The network will bring together Polish scientists involved in biological material acquisition, collection and research. It operates within the Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructure – European Research Infrastructure Consortium BBMRI-ERIC and under the auspices of the Ministry of Science.
Universities and scientific institutions are inviting researchers from all over the world to Poland to join scientific projects and didactic activities or share their experience in obtaining grants. Applications for scholarships in the second edition of the Ulam Programme will be accepted until April 15.
