Olsztyn: new branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences

As a token of appreciation for the scientists from Warmia, Mazury and Podlasie, the eighth branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) – Olsztyn-Białystok – will be established in Olsztyn.

The present PAN branches are located in: Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Lublin, Poznań, Wrocław and Łódź. On Thursday, 11 December 2014, members of the General Assembly of the Polish Academy of Sciences decided to establish the eighth one: Olsztyn-Białystok Branch, with its head office in Olsztyn.

– It is an immense success for us. PAN branches are established only in big and important Polish cities. Today, a new one was set up, Olsztyn-Białystok Branch, which will be located in Olsztyn. The decision made by the General Assembly means that achievements of scientists from this region of Poland found appreciation. Specifically, I think of such institutions as: the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn, the University of Warmia and Mazury, and Mammal Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Białowieża – says the Rector of UWM, Prof. Ryszard Górecki.

– The Branch is expected to start functioning at the beginning of 2015. Its office will be most probably located at the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research in the Tuwima Street – Prof. Górecki announces.

The Polish Academy of Sciences is an independent research institute that serves the development of science, its promotion, integration and popularization.
