The National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) has relaunched the Polish Returns program. Outstanding Polish scientists working abroad can obtain funds to return to the country and conduct research in Polish organizations.
Funding under the program includes the remuneration of the returning researcher, members of the project group and inviting person, as well as resettlement costs. As in previous programs, the application may also include a research component covering basic research, which will be financed by the National Science Center.
In this program of the Polish Returns, scientists planning application research or development work may also add an application component in the form of a start-up grant financed by the National Center for Research and Development.
NAWA will accept proposals until 25 July 2022. The total budget of the competition is PLN 18 million.
