National Science Centre (NCN)

The National Science Centre supports basic research by funding research projects carried out by individual researchers and research teams, both on the domestic and international level.

The main objectives of the National Centre of Science include:

  • supporting research projects in all fields of science and humanities,
  • financing doctoral scholarships and postdoctoral internships,
  • funding of research projects carried out by experienced researchers to implement pioneering research relevant to scientific development,
  • international cooperation in basic research,
  • supervision over the implementation of the awarded research projects.

The Centre also carries out its tasks together with institutions and organisations through competitions, e.g. for projects in the field of astrophysics of elementary particles - "Per aspera ad astra".
