PASIFIC kick-off meeting

The kick-off meeting, officially inaugurating the PASIFIC Program, will take place on November 5th, 2020 from 14:00 to 16:00 (CEST). It is a postdoc fellowship program addressed to researchers from around the world, who wish to carry out their research at the PAS institutes. We invite you to attend our online event next Thursday.


PASIFIC program

The PASIFIC (Polish Academy of Sciences' Individual Fellowships: Innovation & Creativity) program offers 50 two-year postdoctoral fellowships for research to be carried out at one of the PAS institutes as well as the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw. The program is open to researchers in all fields and nationalities.

The PASIFIC program creates opportunity to strengthen contacts between PAS institutes and other scientific institutions in Poland and abroad, as well as to establish and deepen relations with the non-academic-sector. One of the program’s objectives is to create long-term, sustainable research collaborations between the fellows that can outlast their fellowships.

Online meeting

The inaugural PASIFIC meeting will be attended by the following representatives of the Polish Academy of Sciences: Prof. Jerzy Duszyński, PAS President, Prof. Paweł Rowiński, PAS Vice-President, and Prof. Andrzej Rychard, director of the PAS Institute of Philosophy and Sociology. The meeting will also include: Prof. Zbigniew Błocki, director of the National Science Center and members of the Advisory Board of the PASIFIC program: Prof. Michael Giersig (Free University of Berlin and PAS Institute of Fundamental Technological Research), Prof. Barbara Romanowicz (University of California, Berkeley, member of the ERC Scientific Council), Prof. Oliver Jens Schmitt (Austrian Academy of Sciences and University of Vienna) and Prof. Jerzy Paszkowski (University of Cambridge).

The Polish Academy of Sciences' Individual Fellowships: Innovation & Creativity project is co-financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Co-funding of regional, national and international programs (MSCA COFUND).
