About the project

The idea behind the Excellence Initiative – Research University Programme was to select the best Polish universities and provide them with an opportunity to grow so that, in the future, they can be ranked among renowned universities all over the world that provide high-quality studies and education. The beneficiaries selected as part of the programme will receive an extra 10% on top of the regular subsidy from 2020 to 2026.

Out of all universities in Poland, the top 20 qualified for the first competition “Excellence Initiative – Research University” organised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MSHE). During the next stage, they were evaluated by an international team of 15 prominent experts from the science and higher education sector. The experts selected 10 universities that will become research universities. In that group, the Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) was ranked number three (along with three other universities: AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Jagiellonian University).
