 Priority Research Teams

The call for "NCU Priority Research Teams" was organised by Working Group 2 of the "Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń – Vision of Excellence in Research" project under "Excellence Strategy – Research University" programme financed by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The aim of the call was to select priority research areas and strategic international partners. The selected research teams demonstrated outstanding scientific activity, strong international collaboration, and presented a plan for the development of their scientific potential for a three-year period. 52 proposals were submitted to the call within the specified deadline.
