The project will study funding, governance and human resources policies of major European research universities and explore how they fit the Polish case.

It is conducted in the Center in collaboration with the AMU Doctoral School (Faculty of Computing). The doctoral student is Łukasz Szymula, MA. Funding received is approximately 130,000 EUR.
