POL-on network for science and higher education

Technology that transforms data into knowledge, inspiration and action

What is the POL-on network

POL-on is a network of systems for universities, scientific institutions and units of public administration. It constitutes the largest database on Polish science and higher education. It powers digital solutions that are designed for all citizens.

Why we developed the POL-on network

The network provides objective data that is used primarily by the Polish Ministry of Science and Education. Based on that data, they make decisions, for example, in the funding or evaluation of education and scientific potential. The manner of data collection and utilisation is determined by the law.

The watchful eye of AI

Advanced artificial intelligence algorithms oversee the POL-on network’s vast dataset. As a result, we can monitor changes continuously , respond to breaches and investigate trends.

The systems in the POL-on network provide facts and data, enable compliance with legal obligations, help users draw conclusions and make better decisions, and ultimately inspire. As the systems collaborate with each other, the data in the network is consistent and up to date. Each system caters to different needs.
