The Polish Roadmap for Research Infrastructure is created at the Ministry of Science and Higher Education every 4 years. Placing research infrastructure on this list is an expression of recognition of the research potential but does not yet guarantee fund to support a given project.
Projects that are on the map are more likely to apply for founding. The regulations state that at least half of the funds allocated to investments related to research are to be directed to projects from the map.
There are 70 infrastructures from all over Poland on the Polish Roadmap for Research Infrastructure. 65 based on the positive recommendation of the advisory team and 5 solely in connection with existing international obligations of the Government of the Republic of Poland. After several years of efforts, the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin is on the map for the first time.
