Today, everything changes very rapidly and we must be adept at recognising future challenges, so that we can reach for them and contribute to the shaping, building and strengthening of Poland’s collective culture, our science and economy, thus enriching the Polish state as a whole said the Prime Minister, addressing the academic community. He added that presently Poland needs to rejuvenate its elites and build ones that are pro-state and patriotic.

According to the head of government, Poland needs universities which will educate with passion, a sense of mission, regardless of their location - whether they are in smaller or larger academic centres, those better known and those less so.

The Prime Minister also stressed that the government is trying to devote as much resources as possible to science and higher education, knowing that it is of fundamental importance for the future of our nation.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki noted that the Constitution for Science adopted by the government, which carries us into the new academic year, is a step in the right direction of building the strength of Polish science and Polish universities.
