The Council of the National Science Centre consists of twenty-four eminent researchers representing various disciplines, appointed by the minister responsible for science from among the candidates nominated by the Identification Team. The duties of the Council include, e.g. laying out the priority basic research areas, specifying the conditions of NCN calls, as well as establishing the amount of funding slated for research within individual disciplines or groups of disciplines. The Council sits for a term of four years, but half of its members are changed every two years.

The first session of the new NCN Council, with the attendance of Przemysław Czarnek, Minister of Education and Science, is scheduled for 21 December 2020.
