A+ scientific category

The Research Units Evaluation Committee assessed the scientific and R&D activities of research units in 2013-2016. For the second time, the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology was awarded the highest scientific category A+.

The prestigious A+ category is awarded to few units from among those which meet the criteria of category A for a given group under common evaluation and which also have exceptionally high level of research. They are chosen in separate expert evaluation proceedings.

The awarded category has significant and direct influence on the level of grants awarded to the unit, i.e., funds for maintaining the research potential, development of young scientists and teaching. The highest scientific category also proves the rank of the unit as a research centre, thus enabling initiatives to establish consortia which apply for funds for ambitious research.
