The Polish Institute of Advanced Studies (PIASt) activities focus on promotion of scientific and intellectual exchange, as well as the creation of ian nternational and interdisciplinary community consisting of researchers, who gather for the academic year in order to discuss and exchange views. Scholarship-holders, exempted from didactic and administrative obligations, will be able to continue their own projects in an international scientific environment, which is stimulating for considerations and innovations.
