Re: financing from subsidy in an internal competition procedure of scientific research or development work and related tasks, serving the development of young academic teachers with a doctoral degree obtained within the last 7 years, employed at the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science.

This is to inform you that, as in previous years, the Faculty subsidy for year 2023 provides IDUJ funds allowing interested applicants to submit a request for financial support of their scientific activities under the program LM2023.

LM2023 funds will be distributed in the form of a competition on the basis of applications submitted by young researchers, undertaking specific research projects in 2023 and 2024.

Support will be given to highly rated research projects that make a significant contribution to the implementation of research topics important from the point of view of the development of the Faculty, consistent with the objectives of the IDUJ strategic program.


Application for funding
Each application submitted in the competition should contain:

  1. Information about the Applicant, incl. name, surname, year of birth, academic title/degree, telephone number and e-mail address.

    In the case of an application including a foreign trip, the applicant should specify the place and purpose of the trip (with justification), provide an estimate of costs and the method of possible presentation / publication of the results achieved. It is recommended that trips abroad be justified either by a prior invitation to give a talk / present a poster during a conference, or by the uniqueness of the equipment (or other research opportunities) in the destination country.
  • costs directly related to conducting research (scientific research equipment, reagents, consumables)
  • costs of purchasing software (licenses), computers and notebooks
  • external services
  • personnel costs, including periodic/one-off/task-related remuneration allowances for team members/project manager; remuneration based on civil law contracts for contractors from outside the Jagiellonian University and students participating in the implementation of projects.
