Outline

What is funded

Financing under the HOMING programme will be provided to projects whose subject matter is listed on the National Smart Specialization (NSS; PL – KIS) list; in exceptional cases, while giving preference to NSS areas, the Foundation may agree to finance projects involving topics not on the NSS list if they show significant application potential or importance for solving a major socioeconomic problem.

Offer

The project budget is recommended not to exceed PLN 800,000 (approx. EUR 180 k)

Duration

Projects lasting up to 24 months will be financed under the programme.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are those young doctors (regardless of nationality) who have had a doctoral degree for not longer than 5 years, where the start of this period is defined by the year of obtaining the degree and the end – by the year preceding the deadline for submitting applications in the competition. The 5-year period may be extended to a maximum of 9 years from obtaining the degree on the terms set down in the competition  documentation.

At the same time, the applicant has to fulfil all of the following conditions:

  • having stayed outside Poland uninterruptedly for at least 9 months for the purpose of conducting scientific research;
  • intending to come to Poland no later than on the project’s starting date, or having come to Poland no earlier than in the year preceding the deadline for submitting applications in the competition.

For the duration of the project, the project manager (principal investigator; PI) shall be employed at the unit, with a commitment of at least 60% of a full-time employment for the purposes of project realisation.

The programme is co-financed with the support of the Smart Growth Operational Programme (PO IR).
