Research units and - institutions in Poland
The research system in Poland is suffering from shortcomings in resource mobilisation and in knowledge management -demand, production and sharing. Polish research institutions are not sufficiently involved in programmes of the European Research Area. The overall level of internationalization of Polish research shall be involved. Only 2% of the overall budget for science and research goes towards domestically-driven international cooperation. Outdated equipment, a lack of laboratory supplies and ineffective organization of the research process make a career in science unappealing to young polish researchers.
The overall objective of the Polish-Swiss Research Programme is to establish and strengthen long-term cooperation between Polish and Swiss researchers focusing primarily on selected research topics: Information and Communication Technologies, Renewable Energy, Nanotechnologies, Health and Environment.
First, a call for joint research project proposals is launched. The best projects will be selected. The selected joint research projects will then be implemented by Polish and Swiss researchers.
The expected results are:
