University of Bialystok received funding PLN 8,791,222 under the “Regional Initiative of Excellence” program from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The money will be spent on developing the research potential of two disciplines: linguistics and literary studies.
The main goal is to support linguistic and literary studies conducted at the University of Bialystok. The funds obtained will allow for the implementation of research projects, the publication of monographs and scientific articles, financing of researchers’ trips to library and archival queries as well as conducting surveys.
The university also intends to employ young researchers and thus increase their participation in the employment structure in developed disciplines – additional calls for PhD students and PhD holders are planned.
