It was naive of me to think that the Central Mining Institute (GIG) was all about mining and mining only. And I took it for granted that coal mining, a huge part of the Polish economy, should have a powerful institute of its own. After all, even kids in Polish preschools are taught that their country is founded on coal. Coal mining constitutes the bedrock of the country's economy, with industry, households and exports dependent on it.
Prof. Józef Dubiński, director-general of the Central Mining Institute (GIG) in Katowice, talks to Ewa Dereń.
Two Polish companies, Selvita in Cracow and the BioInfoBank Institute in Poznań, have joined a European research project that aims to develop an innovative technology for the solid-phase synthesis of peptides, complete with equipment to conduct the process.
Monika Słomińska-Wojewódzka, a Gdańsk researcher working to develop new methods to treat infectious and neurodegenerative diseases as well as arteriosclerosis has received a scholarship as part of the Foundation for Polish Science's Homing program. The program is designed to benefit researchers returning to Poland after a time spent abroad.
Mikołaj Chojnacki, a young Ph.D. at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow, has received a cash boost from the Foundation for Polish Science to continue his research into the transformation of matter after the Big Bang.
A group of researchers including Jacek Doskocz, a Ph.D. financially supported by the Foundation for Polish Science, is conducting research on third-generation solar cells as a more efficient alternative to traditional devices of its kind.
Every year, Poland produces around 340 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). Some of this greenhouse gas could be converted into liquid fuels-gasoline and diesel fuel. Scientists from the Faculty of Chemistry at the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in the eastern city of Lublin have developed a new CO2 management method.
Researchers at the Wrocław University of Technology are building a device to detect cocaine in the sweat of car drivers. The device is part of a European Union project called Labonfoil.
Eleven young Polish scientists will be able to work in research centers in the United States, Britain and Germany as part of the latest round of the Foundation for Polish Science's Kolumb (Columbus) scholarship program.
A team of young Polish mathematicians won 11 medals, including five gold, at the 23rd International Championships in Mathematical and Logical Games in Paris Aug. 28-29.
Matching partners to exchange know-how and work together for new technology is the main aim of the Regional Network for Technology Promotion and Transfer (RSPTT) in the southern Silesia region. The project, in part financed by the EU's European Social Fund, was launched in June.
An international panel of judges granted three first prizes, each of 7,000 euros, to research papers from Ireland, Switzerland and Poland.
The Warsaw University of Technology is preparing to launch an Enterprise Development Center, an institution designed to support inventors at every stage of their work. Institutions of this kind help inventors by taking care of the entire project development process, says Prof. Andrzej Rabczenko, one of the academics behind the idea to establish the Enterprise Development Center.
An archeological expedition headed by Waldemar Ossowski from the Marine Archeology Department of the Central Maritime Museum in the northern city of Gdańsk has found an almost complete wreck of a boat that was used to transport bulk cargo. The boat, dated to the 16th century, has been uncovered in the old Vistula river bed in Czersk, 25 kilometers south of Warsaw. It lies at the bottom of a pond dug in the old river bed near Lake Czerskie.
