About POLONEZ BIS
POLONEZ BIS is a fellowship programme co-funded by the European Commission and the National Science centre under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND grant addressed at foreign researchers who intend to pursue their research career at the Polish research institutions. POLONEZ BIS, unlike any other grant programme, combines research, fellowship in non-academic institutions and soft skill development programmes.
50 researchers from all over the world were recruited in the first round of POLONEZ BIS. The final (third) round will start on 15 September 2022 and end on 15 December 2022. The winners will move to Poland for 24 months to conduct their basic research projects in public or private institutions of their choice. The programme will ensure full-time employment for researchers and additional funds for their research projects.
Programme funding may be pursued by any researcher, regardless of nationality, research subject or discipline. Funding proposals may be submitted by researchers with a PhD degree or at least four years of full-time research experience who have lived and worked outside of Poland for at least two years before the launch of the call. The applicants submitting funding proposals together with the Polish host institutions (i.e. their future employers) are free to choose the research subject and discipline. 120 researchers will move to Poland under POLONEZ BIS.
