The richest source of data on Polish science and higher education.
What is POL‑on?
POL‑on is the primary source of knowledge on Polish science and higher education. The data collected in POL‑on is analysed by the central administration, which shapes the Polish state’s policy on science and higher education.
Why did we create it?
POL‑on enables universities and research institutions to submit legally required reports electronically. This enables the rational management of science and higher education. Both of these goals are regulated by legal acts.
Who inputs the data?
All universities, research institutes, scientific institutions, and other science and higher education entities in Poland have a legal obligation to report in POL‑on. We designed the system to standardise the data acquisition process across the country.
Who uses POL‑on?
Primarily, the institutions that make important decisions regarding science and higher education in Poland: the Ministry of Education and Science, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of National Defence, the National Agency for Academic Exchange, and the Polish Accreditation Committee.
