N.B.: i testi in tutte le rubriche, ad eccezione di quella intitolata «risultati raggiunti», descrivono la situazione prima dell’inizio del progetto.


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 for domestically-driven international cooperation. Outdated equipment, lack of laboratory supplies and ineffective organization of the research process makes for young polish researchers a career in science hardly attractive.


The overall objective of the Polish-Swiss Research Programme is to establish and strengthen a long-term coope-ration between Polish and Swiss researchers focusing primarily on selected research topics: Information and Communication Technologies, Renewable Energy, Nanotechnologies, Health and Environment.
