The Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences, the University of Rzeszów, the University of Zielona Góra, and the Medical University of Warsaw will receive funds to expand their research infrastructure under the European Union’s Infrastructure and Environment Operational Program.

This was made possible by an agreement signed at the headquarters of Poland’s National Center for Research and Development (NCBiR) March 6.

“The higher education sector boasts the highest level of using funds available as part of the Infrastructure and Environment Program,” says Adam Zdziebło, deputy minister for regional development. “Investment in university infrastructure is an example of European money well spent.”

The Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences will receive zl.68.9 million for the construction of a Geo-Info-Hydro Center, which will contribute to improving the quality and efficiency of education provided by the university. The center will also make it possible to increase the number of students in the surveying, map-making, landscape architecture, and water management departments. There will be more than 2,050 such students in 2015. The five-story building will house laboratories, computer rooms, design studios, premises for university staff and a library. Parking spaces and laboratories requiring heavy equipment will be located in the underground part of the building.

The Rzeszów University will receive zl.28.9 million for the construction of the Podkarpacie Environmental Innovation and Research Center, a teaching facility for the Faculty of Biology and Agriculture. The building will house soil chemistry, soil biology, soil physics, and microbiology laboratories.

A further zl.35.4 million has been set aside for the University of Zielona Góra for the modernization of its Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Telecommunications.

The Medical University of Warsaw will receive zl.33.4 million for the expansion and modernization of its forensic medicine and clinical anatomy facilities.
