The National Science Centre invites for the fourth time Polish research institutions to declare commitment as potential Host Institutions to Dioscuri Centres of Scientific Excellence. Applications for establishing Dioscuri Centres may come from research institutions that carry out independently and continuously mainly research activity.

The deadline for submissions is the 15th of  February 2021.

Submissions meeting the formal requirements will be published alongside the Dioscuri call announcement, thus helping researchers find the right research institution in Poland.

Researchers will be able to choose an institution from beyond the published list, provided that the institution meets the formal requirements and will commit to satisfy the basic conditions specified in the announcement.

Dioscuri is an initiative by the Max Planck Society (MPG), intended to establish Centres of Scientific Excellence in Central and Eastern Europe. The Centres will enable outstanding researchers to carry out top level research at research institutions in this part of Europe.

For details of the Dioscuri programme and all formal requirements, see the Dioscuri web-page.


Registering your institution as a potential host for a Dioscuri Centre through this call will greatly increase your visibility and give foreign applicants the opportunity to get to know your institution. To support you in preparing your registration as a potential host institution and to give you a comprehensive overview of the Dioscuri Programme funding and application procedures, we will offer webinars during that period. We kindly invite you to take part in one of our three webinars (ll webinars will contain the same presentation) scheduled for:

I - Thursday, 28.01.2021, 14:00-15:30 CET

II - Wednesday, 03.02.2021, 14:00-15:30 CET
