FAST was created for active students and doctoral students, student research clubs and academic associations. It is a form of promoting creativity, ambition, as well as systemic support for those who invent new technological solutions, social activities and conduct interesting research projects.

Wrocław authorities want to promote young scientists with potential. - Unfortunately, sometimes the creativity of young people is limited by such mundane matters as lack of funds for implementation of the assumed objectives or complicated procedures for applying for grants. And yet even a relatively small financial injection makes it possible to successfully pursue ambitious goals, which was shown by the experience of the previous editions of our programme - write the organisers of FAST.

Wrocław Academic Centre encourages scientific circles, groups and organisations of students and doctoral students working at Wrocław universities and institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences to apply for a city grant. As part of the Student Activity Fund, scientific projects may be subsidised up to PLN 5000, and in special cases, the amount may be even higher.

FAST special projects

As in the previous edition, this year the Commission will also award special projects, this time in two categories.

The year 2022 was established as the Wrocław Year of Good Relations - Against Loneliness, projects devoted to the subject of loneliness and solitude can count on special attention.

A special grant will be awarded for a project inspired by the figure of Edith Stein - a saint, philosopher and patron of Europe. - In this way, we would like to draw attention to the fact that this year is dedicated to this extraordinary woman from Wrocław, in connection with the 130th anniversary of her birth and 80th anniversary of her death - say the organisers of FAST.

For special projects, grants totalling PLN 30 000 have been allocated.

Detailed information can be found on the website of Wrocław Academic Centre.
