We are pleased to inform you that the Polish Young Academy granted its Honorary Patronage to our conference.
The Polish Young Academy (AMU) is part of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The President of the Polish Academy of Sciences sought to create AMU inspired by the activities of similar bodies in other countries. The Academy of Young Scholars actively participates in the organization of national scholarly life, namely by formulating opinions and positions on the subject of projected laws, engaging in the work on novelization of the Law on Higher Education, or in formulating the Pact for Science. Members of AMU speak on issues important for the academic community. On the initiative of AMU members in 2013, a number of projects were launched in relation to the phenomenon of mobility among Polish scholars; they resulted in the creation of a pool of expertise in national and international mobility among scholars (published in December 2015). Members of AMU take up also other issues related to scholarly milieu, including relationships between scholars with longer and shorter experience and the phenomenon of mentoring. AMU members using their own and their doctoral students’ experience created a project of summer schools called Hotbed of Young Talents designed for PhD students in order to help them learn how to improve their qualifications in attractive publishing, effective presentation, or communication with the audience. Since the beginning of its activity, AMU has also been strongly engaged in projects increasing public awareness of research.
