A modern research institute will be established in Goerlitz, on the Polish-German border. One of its founders is the University of Wrocław – the only Polish scientific partner of the CASUS research center in Goerlitz, where the institute will be established. This is the first research center in which scientists from Poland and Germany will work together.
The declaration of financing of the Polish-German research institute was signed by the Prime Minister of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer and the deputy minister of the German Ministry of Education and Research, Prof. Wolf-Dieter Lukas. According to the agreement, the CASUS project is allocated EUR 15 million annually until 2038.
The center will be located in a ruined capacitor factory, directly on the Nysa Łużycka river. In the future, about 150 scientists from Poland, Germany and other countries will find work at the research center. Already today, the CASUS team includes scientists from Wrocław and Dresden and representatives of a dozen or so nationalities.
