We invite proposals for research components in projects funded by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange within the NAWA Chair programme.
The NAWA Chair programme is addressed to selected institutions of the higher education and science system, among others Polish universities, scientific institutes and research institutes. They will be allowed to invite to Poland outstanding specialists from thematic priority areas, who will significantly develop breakthrough research, strengthen their teaching activities and support these institutions in preparing applications for prestigious grants. The programme also offers an option of covering the costs of scientific research in the field of basic research (Research component) financed by the National Science Centre in Poland.
Research components may only be carried out by the visiting scientists who are winners of the 2022 NAWA Chair Programme and have been awarded funds by the NAWA for research projects containing such components. A project team may also be involved in a project if it has been covered by a proposal submitted to the NAWA.
The subject of a research component submitted to the call must comply with the research component covered by the proposal funded under the 2022 NAWA Chair Programme.
The continuous call for proposals shall be open from the date the funding decision is issued by the NAWA under its 2022 NAWA Chair Programme until the last proposal is submitted to the NCN that contains a research component and has been recommended for funding by the NAWA under the Programme.
The Council of the National Science Centre has decided to allocate 3,200,000 PLN for Research Components carried out under the 2022 NAWA Chair Programme.
