The research system in Poland is suffering from shortcomings in resource mobilisation and in knowledge management - demand, production and sharing. Polish research institutions are not sufficiently involved in programmes of the European Research Area. The overall level of internationalization of Polish research shall be involved. Only 2% of the overall budget for science and research goes for domestically-driven international cooperation. Outdated equipment, lack of laboratory supplies and ineffective organization of the research process makes for young polish researchers a career in science hardly attractive.


The overall objective of the Polish-Swiss Research Programme is to establish and strengthen a long-term coope-ration between Polish and Swiss researchers focusing primarily on selected research topics: Information and Communication Technologies, Renewable Energy, Nanotechnologies, Health and Environment.
