The Programme objective is to support the highest quality scientific and research as well as teaching activities carried out by Polish academic and scientific units by including in these activities world-class foreign scientists in the fields of natural sciences, engineering and technology, medical and health sciences, and agricultural sciences. The Programme is directed to selected higher education and scientific institutions, including Polish universities, scientific institutes, and research institutes. They will be able to obtain financing for the implementation of a Project that responds to the challenges faced by our civilisation of global importance. The Visiting Scientists should significantly further groundbreaking research and actively apply for prestigious research grants. Under the Programme, it will be possible to employ, for a period of 36–48 months, scientists with outstanding international achievements, coming from various countries in the world, and to enable them to create a Project Group.
The Programme involves financing of the remuneration of the Visiting Scientist, the members of the Project Group, and the Inviting Person, of a mobility allowance for the Visiting Scientist, as well as of the costs of adaptation and organisation of the workplace and preparation of research facilities. The Programme entails a Research Component, which is financed by the National Science Centre.
Employing institutions may be entities referred to in Article 7(1)(1, 2, 4–8) HES that are planning to employ Visiting Scientists. Other entities whose core activity consists in independent and permanent research referred to in Article 7(1)(8) HES provided that they hold a scientific category.
We encourage researchers and scientists to contact Polish scientific units and institutions of higher education in order to establish cooperation in submitting an application form under the NAWA Chair Programme.
