  1. Applications for all types of subsidies will be accepted on an ongoing basis at the Office of the Vice Rector for Research, email address: prorektornauka@adm.uw.edu.pl
  1. Information about awarded funds will be posted twice a year (in June and December) on the website of the Research Administration Office (http://bob.uw.edu.pl/).
  1. Funds awarded as part of designated subsidies must be accounted for (substantive settlements are to be accompanied by a list of expenditure signed by the Bursar’s plenipotentiary at the Faculty/in the Unit within 30 days of project completion).

NCN is a government agency, supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, set up in 2011 to support basic research in Poland.

The National Science Centre supports basic research by funding research projects carried out by individual researchers and research teams, both on the domestic and international level, as well as doctoral fellowships and post-doctoral internships. NCN announces calls for proposals four times a year. The NCN grantee must be employed at a Polish host institution. Additional conditions applicable to each call are set forth by the Council of the NCN.

The National Centre for Research and Development is the implementing agency of the Minister of Science and Higher Education. It was appointed in the summer 2007 as an entity in charge of the performance of the tasks within the area of national science, science and technology and innovation policies.  When it was founded, it was the first entity of this type, created as the platform of an effective dialogue between the scientific and business communities.

Currently, it operates under the Act on National Centre for Research and Development dated 30 April 2010 (Journal of Laws from 2010, No. 96 item 616). The science reform adopted in the autumn 2010 gave the Centre more freedom to manage its financial assets, within the scope of a strategic research programme.

In addition, the National Centre for Research and Development extended its activity with new initiatives and possibilities on 1 September 2011. Assigned by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education the function of the Mediation Institution in three operational programmes: Human Capital, Innovative Economy and Infrastructure and Environment, the Centre became one of the greatest innovation centres in Poland.

The activity of the Centre is funded by the national treasury and the European Union
