               and Potential


        We started in 1953, becoming pioneers among the technological department institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Our Institute was created by the most outstanding of the Polish scientists, such as prof. W. Nowacki and prof. W. Olszak, among others. The Institute’s potential is best demonstrated by its well-established position in the world, highest national ratings and honorable awards, including the “Polish Nobles”. What makes our Institute prestigious is also the participation of our employees in the elected collegiate bodies of many renowned international organizations and scientific societies.
