The National Science Centre Grants’s for the Nencki Institute

The National Science Centre has published ranking lists of projects which have qualified for financial backing within the limits of the competitions announced by the NSC on 15th March, 2016. Scientists from the Nencki Institute received financial backing for the 12 research projects they worked on in OPUS11, PRELUDIUM11 and SONATA11 competitions.
