The Institute De Republica Award

The Institute De Republica Award for outstanding scientific achievement in the humanities, social sciences and arts

The Institute De Republica, performing its statutory tasks related to the popularisation of Polish science, grants special awards to representatives of the world of science and art.

The aim of the Institute’s De Republica Award is to support and promote the most talented young scholars who carry out research in the fields of humanities, social sciences and arts, as well as to recognise outstanding Polish scientists who, through their work, overall scientific achievements and international activities, are a source of inspiration for young generations.

The distinction awarded by the Institute De Republica is both honorary and educational, providing a better insight into the research and oeuvre of Polish scientists. Its objective is to emphasise the reputation and uniqueness of the contribution of all laureates to the development of Polish science.

The contest is open to young scientists, i.e., persons under 40 years of age, who at the early stage of their career are demonstrating the potential to become leaders in their field as well as all scientists (without age limit) who have significant scientific achievements. Candidates for the Award may be submitted by: universities, basic organizational units of universities, research institutes, scientific units and scientific committees of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN), faculties or committees of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences (PAU), scientific associations as well as individuals.
