ABOUT AGH UST

Krakow the former capital of Poland, lies in the southern part of Poland at riverside of the Vistula. Poland’s third city and a lively university town, Krakow has a wonderfully preserved old centre of cobbled streets and narrow passageways, of Gothic spires and baroque cupolas. Rynek Glowny, the largest medieval square in Europe, is dominated by the magnificent renaissance Cloth Hall where you can shop for souvenirs or stop for coffee. One of the great works of medieval art, Veit Stoss’s exquisitely carved wooden altar, can be found nearby in the Mariacki Church. Further evidence of the town’s fascinating history is provided by the remnants of the 14th-century fortifications and the medieval site of Kazimierz with its ancient synagogues in the southern part of town. Tours of the 15th-century Collegium Maius at the heart of the university include the richly decorated reception rooms which would have been familiar to the astronomer Mikolaj Kopernik (Copernicus). On the opposite bank of the Vistula is the Wawel or Royal Castle with its beautifully decorated interiors containing priceless tapestries. The Cathedral, where Poland’s kings were crowned and buried, is the former seat of Archbishop Karol Wojtyla, better known to the world as Pope John Paul II. The historic centre of Cracow is inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

The Symposium will be held at

ACCOMMODATION

AGH is a modern university that actively participates in building a knowledge-based society and in creating innovative technologies.

The university has got a well-established position in the country and becomes recognised abroad. Experienced staff, advanced laboratories, a unique campus, and above all, the bond that links the AGH community are our greatest assets.

The great success of AGH is the fact that the university acquired the status of a research university. In the ministerial program “Excellence Initiative – Research University”, the winners of the first competition were the 10 best Polish universities. The university was also awarded the title of the European Space University as a participant of the UNIVERSEH consortium – European Space University for Earth and Humanity, to which belong four another European universities. What is more, as a part of the ministerial parameterisation process five basic organisational AGH units have been granted the highest scientific category A +.

We extensively carry out scientific research in the fields of technical sciences, natural sciences, Earth sciences and social sciences, bearing in mind current priorities of the economy and business, in such areas as, inter alia, digitisation, energy transformation and zero emissions, climate change, circular economy or Industry 4.0. Among the many forward-looking research fields at AGH, works related to space engineering are being intensively developed.

The research studies are facilitated by over 800 laboratories equipped with modern apparatus. Thanks to numerous investments made over the last decade the development of research areas is possible. It is, among others, the construction of facilities such as: the Information Technology Centre, the Ceramics Centre, the Academic Centre for Materials and Nanotechnology, the Centre of Energy, unique on a European scale, the building of the Department of Telecommunications, the building of the Faculty of Drilling, Oil and Gas and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering, as well as the construction of a new seat for the Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer Science, a modern sports hall and a building for the Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Applied Mathematics and the Department of Foreign Languages.

The education offer includes 67 fields of study conducted at 16 faculties. The university also offers education in doctoral schools and nearly 90 postgraduate courses.

The innovative potential of AGH is based on the developed intellectual property, which is expressed in the number of obtained patents, trademarks, utility models and the gained know-how and experience of scientists and students. Every year, the university obtains nearly 100 patents and grants several dozen licenses. Moreover, AGH is one of the leading Polish institutions in terms of the number of patent applications submitted to the European Patent Office, and the Office of the World Intellectual Property Organisation or intellectual property offices of individual countries.
