NAWA invites scholars from foreign universities and research centres with a PhD to apply for the S.Ulam Programme.
This is the 5th edition of the Stanisław Ulam programme! Our aim is to increase the internationalisation of Polish universities and scientific institutions. The ULAM NAWA programme allows recognised as well as promising scientists to come to Poland, enables them to complete internships, as well as to establish and deepen scientific cooperation in Polish research and academic centres. The programme enables a gradual increase in the number of foreign scientists involved in research and teaching in Poland, thus strengthening the potential of Polish entities.
The Ulam NAWA programme is a catalyst for academic mobility in Poland. For the past five years, it has provided foreign scientists with the opportunity to collaborate with Polish researchers and experts. Thanks to the exchange of experience and a lively scientific discussion, Polish research units can engage in an even greater number of interesting and important projects and thus develop their scientific potential. - says NAWA Director General Dr. Dawid Kostecki.
So far, 4 calls have been closed, and in each of them several times more applications have been submitted than the planned funding would indicate. The average success rate after 4 closed editions was around 22%. The total number of beneficiaries who have received a positive decision exceeds 250 and these are citizens from 52 countries.
The ULAM NAWA scholarship holders identified 66 Polish institutions and universities where they would like to conduct their research. Although some of the projects ended, many of the scholarship holders remained in Poland, staying at our centres for longer, writing new joint projects and publications.
The call for applications for the Programme will be conducted from 21 February to 22 May 2023 until 15:00, according to the official time in Poland.
