Almost PLN 1 million for mentors and for the development of student research clubs

Plutonium and Technetium
In the first recruitment to the two programs Plutonium and Technetium, implemented as part of the tasks of the EIRU program, almost one million zlotys will be allocated to supporting the activity of mentors caring for particularly gifted students and co-financing research conducted by scientific student associations.

The Technetium program supports the activity of mentors - academic teachers - caring for especially gifted students who are involved in research activities in PRA Centers. On the other hand, the aim of the Plutonium is to support the activities of student research clubs, which constitute a natural environment for the selection of leaders of research groups, organizational leaders and leaders initiating new research areas.

A total of 30 applications were submitted in both competitions, 17 of which were granted funding.
