At the inauguration of the 2020/2021 academic year, the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University (UKSW) in Warsaw has based the Pro Polonia Foundation to strengthen cooperation with the Polish diaspora. One of the tasks of the Foundation and the UKSW is to establish the Polish Academy of Sciences.
-We want to develop wide cooperation among Poles living abroad – from educational, cultural, through religious, economic, to sports or tourist areas. We will support the integration of the Polish community abroad, as well as bilateral contacts: between Polish society, mainly young people, academic world, and the Polish communities and Poles living abroad – said the rector of the UKSW, Rev. Prof. Ryszard Czekalski, one of the founders of Pro Polonia.
The rector of the UKSW stated that the establishment of the Polish Academy of Sciences is a strategic issue for the Foundation and the UKSW. Its establishment is possible thanks to the understanding and support of the Polish authorities – added Rev. Prof. Ryszard Czekalski and pointed out that the UKSW has enormous intellectual potential that the university is ready to launch and significantly support Poles scattered around the world.
