Science in Poland seems to be like the horse in the story: the owner of the horse has embarked on an experimental programme to teach the animal to break its habit of eating. The programme was very successful. The final effect, however, was partly spoiled by the untimely death of the horse.

Institutes, which are not intimately coupled to higher education, can crudely be divided into two groups: those which concentrate on the fundamental research in a particular discipline of science and those involved in the R & D phase, associated with a particular field of application. A balanced mix of the two is rare, so rare in fact, that if such an unorthodox organization is set, it has hard time in adapting to the rules of financing. The same difficulty applies to cross-disciplinary hybrids. And all that in spite of the lip service of various decision-taking bodies that it is the cross-disciplinary harmonious transfer of ideas-to-research-to-development-to production which is the ultimate objective of their policies.
