Prof. Andrzej Indrzejczak from the University of Łódź and NCN grant winner has been awarded an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council. He is the second AdG winner and fourteenth researcher working at a Polish research institute with an ERC grant awarded this year.

Prof. Andrzej Indrzejczak is a logician and author of numerous papers on proof theory and non-classic logics. He teaches logic, philosophy and fundamentals of computer science. He is the Head of the Department of Logic and Methodology of Science at the Faculty of Philosophy and History of the University of Łódź. The European Research Council will fund his research entitled “Coming to Terms: Proof Theory Extended to Definite Descriptions and other Terms”. His project will be carried out at the Centre for the Philosophy of Nature of the University of Łódź which conducts interdisciplinary research in the area of philosophy, natural science, physics and mathematics.

He is a winner of two NCN grants awarded under the OPUS call for proposals. His current project focuses on the investigation of some important proof systems for nonclassical logics.

In April 2022, an ERC Advanced Grant was awarded to Prof. Wojciech Knap from the Institute of High Pressure Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, leader of the project entitled “Towards On-Chip Plasmonic Amplifiers of THz Radiation”.

Advanced Grants are dedicated to well-established and outstanding researchers with significant research achievements. In March 2022, the ERC also awarded Consolidator Grants. The winners of the call addressed at researchers with 7-12 years of experience since completion of PhD included two researchers from Poland. At the beginning of the year, the ERC awarded Starting Grants addressed at researchers with 2-7 years of experience since completion of their PhD. It was a record-breaking edition of StG for Poland with 10 grants awarded to researchers from the Polish research institutions. They are all also NCN grant winners.

A list of Polish winners, including winners of the previous editions of ERC calls, is available on the website of the National Contact Point.

This month, the European Research Council awarded the “Public Engagement with Research Award” addressed at ERC grant winners who perform research involving non-research communities. Dr Artur Obłuski, an archaeologist from the University of Warsaw is one of nine winners of the call. He is also a grant winner of two NCN calls. Dr Obłuski carries out his research in Old Dongola in today’s Sudan. In his work he considers the local point of view and traditional knowledge on cultural heritage.

The Work Programme of the future ERC calls 

NCN grant recipients may take part in the ERC Mentoring Initiative aimed to support researchers applying to ERC calls in their preparation of proposals.
