Having drawn conclusions from the recent Simons Semesters program (2015-2019), IMPAN is prepared for more varied forms of research programs on speciﬁc topics. We intend to widen the scope and format of thematic semesters, still however focusing one bringing together the world’s leading researchers as well as excellent young people. We intend the programs to be typically run by a small but international group of organizers and include both long-term participants and short-term visitors attending workshops, schools and conferences.
The primary objective of the project is to strengthen the impact of scientific research conducted at IMPAN, but also in other Polish scientific institutions, on the development of world science. Achieveing this will be possible through number of measures, the effects of which will contribute to improving the quality of scientific activity.
