The European Commission’s commitment to promoting gender equality in research and innovation is an important part of the European Commission’s broader Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025, announced in March 2020. One of the objectives of this strategy is to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) to ensure equal opportunities in a working environment where all, regardless of gender, can develop their talents and to better integrate the gender dimension in scientific projects in order to improve the quality of research as well as its relevance to a society based on knowledge, technology and innovation.

Communication of 4 May 2021 on the financing of the 2021 licence
On 29 April 2021. The Rector of the University of Warsaw signed an annex to the agreement between MEiN and UW for funding of the NPV in 2021. It is expected that the annex will be countersigned in the coming days by the Minister of Education and Science. This annex includes:
Purchase of national licences for 2021: Cell and Elsevier journals with open access publishing (OA), Springer with OA, Wiley, the journal Nature, the journal Science (including the OA Science Advances programme), the Scopus, SciVal, Web of Science, InCites databases, and Poland’s contribution to the Scoap3 programme in 2021, with the grant for national licences allocated so far being sufficient to cover costs until at least 30 October 2021, possibly a few weeks longer depending on exchange rates.
Funding for the purchase of consortium licences for 2021: ACS from OA, AIP, APS, CAS SciFinder, CUP from OA, Emerald from OA, EMIS, IEEE from OA, IOP from OA, JSTOR, Knovel, LWW from OA, NPG, OECD/IEA, OUP from OA, Passport, ProQuest, Reaxys and Taylor&Francis from OA, with the grant awarded being sufficient to cover the planned funding of consortium licences for the full year 2021.
Once the MoE countersigns the annex for funding, ICM will start signing contracts with publishers or publishers’ agents. New funding agreements for the Emerald, Knovel, LWW, Passport, OECD, ProQuest, Reaxys consortia and annexes to the ACS, IOP and IEEE multi-year agreements are already ready for signature, and the CAS SciFinder agreement does not need to be annexed. New grant agreements are still being prepared for AIP, APS, JSTOR, EMIS, CUP, OUP, Taylor&Francis and NPG. It is hoped that all contracts will be signed by the end of May. ICM will be producing minutes and procedural notices for the new contracts signed on an ongoing basis and we anticipate that these documents will start to appear after 15 May. Newly signed contracts and proceedings documentation will be made available for inspection by consortium licence coordinators for consortium participants. In the case of multi-year contracts, the signed annexes to these contracts and the 2020 procurement documentation will be made available.
After the signing of the annex for funding by the MoE, the ICM will also sign agreements with participants in consortia coordinated directly by the ICM, viz: ACS, CAS SciFinder, IOP, ProQuest and Reaxys. ICM expects to issue invoices for contributions to participants in these consortia in the 2nd half of May. Participants in consortia coordinated by publishers or agents can start signing their individual subscription agreements with publishers or agents as soon as ICM’s funding agreements with publishers or agents become available.

The Ulam NAWA Programme
The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) is pleased to announce the third edition of the programme for post-doctoral incoming researchers: The Ulam NAWA Programme. The programme will allow both recognised and promising scientists who hold at least a doctoral degree, to visit Poland in order to strengthen the scientific potential of Polish entities and to participate in their scientific activities, primarily research projects and didactics. The programme will allow to invite scientists regardless of their age, from all around the world and representing all fields of science, including Polish scientists working permanently abroad. HEIs, scientific and research institutes will have the opportunity to invite specialists from their priority areas to Poland – they will make a significant contribution to the research conducted by a given institution, strengthen didactics or support the institution in applying for prestigious grants.
Activities to be carried out during the Scholarship may include:
- conducting research and/or development work
- post-doctoral training
- obtaining materials for scientific work or publication
- in addition to the above activities, the visit may also include conducting didactic classes at the Host institution.
The visits under the Project can last from 6 to 24 months. The Programme provides financing for a Scholarship that covers the Fellow’s living allowance of PLN 10,000 a month, along with a mobility allowance. The visits of foreign scientists have to commence between 1 January 2022 and 1 October 2022.
Call for proposals: until 15 June 2021
