Polish research institutes in need of reform, analysis finds

An independent analysis has recommended large-scale changes to Poland’s science and education systems.

The country’s strongest research institutes should be moved into research-intensive universities, according to the analysis, which was commissioned by the Polish government and published on 8 September. This shift would help to increase the visibility of Polish science and improve the international competitiveness of those universities.

About 10 research-intensive universities with very high potential should be recognised through a competition and provided with extra funding under a programme based on Germany’s Excellence Initiative, the assessment panel said. A smaller number of these could then be designated as ‘flagship’ universities and given further funding.
