We would like to inform all applicants interested in applying for the POLONEZ 1 fellowship that the electronic submission system will be opened in the next few days. A delay in opening the system occurred due to the fact that the resolution concerning the granting of state aid, issued by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education has only just been adopted on the 14th of September. In order to enable institutions who benefit from state aid to participate in POLONEZ 1, NCN must introduce the necessary changes in the submission system.

According to the resolution mentioned above, researchers are able to apply for fellowships in a wide range of Host Institutions located in Poland, such as:

  • research organisations,
  • university research centres established within a single university structure,
  • scientific libraries,
  • enterprises with the status of a research and development centre as defined in the Act of 30th May 2008 on Certain Forms of Support for Innovation Activities,
  • organisational institutions having legal personality status, established on Polish territory,
  • enterprises conducting res earch in a different organisational form than those set forth in 1-5.

The exact date the submission system will open shall be announced on the NCN website. We apologise for any inconvenience.
