Scholarships for International Research Agendas Programme:

  • The programme will cover the followings:
    • The Foundation will provide support and assistance throughout the application and implementation period.
    • We anticipate that each project will receive a minimum of 35 million PLN for the first five years.
    • Project funding will include costs of R&D work conducted by the unit implementing the IRAP, costs connected with the efficient functioning of the unit, costs of operating existing infrastructure, cooperation between partners, and knowledge transfer. However, support for new infrastructure will be limited to the purchase of essential laboratory equipment and fit-out. Funding will also cover the costs of research staff development related to project implementation.
    • No significant funding is provided for infrastructure or large-scale equipment.

Eligibility for International Research Agendas Programme: 

  •  Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:
    • Applications should be submitted by renowned researchers with significant scientific achievements complemented by considerable managerial experience. The applicant can be a citizen of Poland or any other country, including from outside the European Union.
    • Where required, e.g. if the application covers interdisciplinary research, the application may be submitted by two researchers. However, it should be clearly indicated in the application form which of the researchers is the principal applicant. The application can also be submitted by two researchers if the secondary applicant will be applying to take on the role of Scientific Affairs Director.
    • The applicant applies to be the director of the new institution. Therefore, all the applicants have to be fully committed to implementing the IRAP and therefore be based at the institution for at least 0.5 FTE.
