Overview of the Habilitation Workshop:
In 2020 a new procedure for obtaining habilitation was introduced in Poland. It has many points in common with the previous path, but also significant changes that can represent a challenge for researchers looking to become independent. During the meeting, the speakers will analyse the new habilitation procedure both from a legislative and a practical point of view, showing what are the main points to be considered and the most common problems. As internationalization and collaborations beyond the Polish horizon are of paramount importance in the new habilitation procedure, the workshop will include a presentation from a NAWA representative, to provide an overview of international programmes for researchers.
The Habilitation Workshop is open for everyone. The MCAA Polish Chapter meeting is open only to MCAA Polish Chapter members. If you are elligible to become an MCAA member you can join the MCAA Polish Chapter during the registration.
MCAA members can apply for travel grants from their respective Chapters and WG’s.
Given the current surge in COVID-19 infections we strongly discourage not vaccinated participants from joining the event. Please maintain safe distance during the event and follow the protocols in place to avoid COVID-19 spread.
