Horizon Europe Collaboration Opportunities with Institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences

The “Horizon Europe Collaboration Opportunities with Institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences” folder is now available, providing a comprehensive guide to potential collaborations with renowned research teams affiliated with various research institutes under the umbrella of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS).

To facilitate research collaboration and foster international cooperation, the Polish Science Contact Agency “PolSCA” of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Brussels presents a practical tool for a wide range of European researchers and project leaders willing to establish new collaborative links with PAS R&I community via Horizon Europe. Within the folder, research team leaders from diverse institutes affiliated at the PAS showcase their expertise, research interests, and potential areas of collaboration within Horizon Europe. The key focus areas include MSCA, Research Infrastructures, HE thematic clusters, Widening and innovation instruments.

The folder includes detailed information about 31 PAS institutes and specific research teams interested in initiating new collaborations and expanding existing academic networks. Therefore, it is possible to gain insights into the activities of each institute or research team, including their research interests, expertise, and previous projects. Additionally, the folder facilitates direct connection with research leaders through provided contact details, making collaboration initiation easier. By enabling searching by keywords or browsing through brief descriptions, it is possible to identify a direct contact with a PAS-affiliated research leaders keen on applying jointly for Horizon Europe calls.


Internationalization of research is among key strategic priorities of the Polish Academy of Sciences, therefore supporting measure such as this publication are warmly welcome by the leadership of the Academy. – The natural role of Polish Academy of Sciences is to develop and disseminate Polish science; however, in our activities we do not stop only within the country. The Academy supports international cooperation through research projects, scientific consortia or participation in the work of inter-state scientific organizations. We believe that thanks to such cooperation, Polish science will become even more competitive on the global market – prof. Mirosława Ostrowska, vice-president of PAS.

Folder is available for download via link.

The full version of the folder, including its separate and downloadable chapters can be found on the PolSCA PAS in Brussels website.


The Horizon Europe framework programme aims to support and promote science, research, and innovation to address societal challenges, foster industrial competitiveness, and advance knowledge and technologies. With a budget of €95.5 billion for the period 2021-2027, Horizon Europe provides the largest EU budget for research and innovation to date.

The “Horizon Europe Collaboration Opportunities with Institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences” folder can be utilized to establish partnerships and collaborations with the institutes of PAS. Through this collaboration, research teams can contribute to the development of solutions to global challenges, foster innovation, and advance knowledge for the betterment of society.

The folder encompasses a wide range of institutes, across scientific PAS divisions:

  1. Humanities and Social Sciences, e.g. Institute of Economics, Institute of History, Institute of Literary Research, Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Institute of Political Studies, Institute of Rural and Agricultural Development, Institute of Slavic Studies,
  2. Biological and Agricultural Sciences, e.g. European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology, Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research, Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, Institute of Genetics and Animal Biotechnology, Institute of Paleobiology, Institute of Systematics and Evolution of Animals, International Institute of Molecular Mechanisms and Machines, Franciszek Górski Institute of Plant Physiology, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology,
  3. Exact Sciences (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Earth science), e.g. Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Institute of Geophysics, Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research, Institute of Oceanology, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Institute of Physical Chemistry, Space Research Centre,
  4. Engineering Sciences, e.g. Institute of Chemical Engineering, Institute of Computer Science, Institute of Environmental Engineering, Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Mineral and Energy Economy Research Institute,
  5. Medical Sciences, e.g.Hirszfeld Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy, Institute of Human Genetics, Maj Institute of Pharmacology.
