Proposal to establish in Poland the international scientific centre Astrocent to conduct research on gravitational waves/dark matter/other aspects of the “hidden Universe” using advanced technological instruments has obtained funding amounting to over PLN 37 million in the  International Research Agendas Programme (IRAP) competition implemented by the Foundation for Polish Science and co-financed from the EU’s Smart Growth Operational Programme (POIR).


The proposal submitted by Professor Leszek Roszkowski from NCBJ, with Professor Tomasz Bulik from the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Warsaw as a co-applicant, was among the three successful applications awarded in the second competition announced within the IRAP programme framework. The new research unit will be located in Warsaw and will be headed by Professor Roszkowski. We congratulate both outstanding scientists, in particular our colleague from NCBJ, on their success!
