Enhancing research cooperation
The Norway Grants research programme in Poland is expected to enhance research cooperation between Norway and Poland and strengthen the research capacity and application of research results.

 "Such a great number of proposals submitted in a bilateral call stands for a growing interest in cooperation with Polish research institutions", said Professor Krzysztof Jan Kurzydłowski, Director of the National Centre for Research and Development when the call for proposals closed in the end of 2012.
