The next edition of the Science: Polish Perspectives Conference will take place on 16-17 November. The November meeting of the Polish scientific diaspora will be held in Oxford this time (Said Business School, University of Oxford).
The SPP Conference is dedicated to Polish scientists working abroad and has been held regularly since 2012. So far its venues were Oxford and Cambridge, while this year it also took place in Berlin (12 and 13 October).
Indigenous scientists working outside Poland have been showing growing interest in strengthening the networking community that consolidates the Polish academic world abroad. The Polonium Foundation, the organiser of the event, was established in 2016 by a group of young Polish scientists working and studying in the United Kingdom, and the idea for it was born during one of the Science conferences: Polish Perspectives.
Participants in the SPP conference in Oxford will have the opportunity to listen to many interesting lectures presented by a group of young scientists and take part in workshops. The NAWA Director, Łukasz Wojdyga will give one of the opening speeches. During the presentation entitled What are the latest News in Internationalisation of Polish science and higher education? he will, among other topics, discuss the programmes offered by NAWA, as well as the role the Agency plays in the internationalisation of Polish science. In the afternoon our representatives - Agnieszka Stefaniak-Hrycko and Paweł Kurzyński from the Department of Programmes for Scientists, and Piotr Kępski from the Department of Programmes for Institutions will conduct the workshop Grants you are invited to! Workshop on the NAWA grants application process, during which they will invite the participants to explore the nuances and the most difficult stages of applying for grants and reveal which applications are most likely to be approved. Throughout the event, NAWA will be represented at a promotional stand, where our employees will be offering information to all interested doctoral students and scientists.
