The Programme on Modern Poland was established by the Noble Foundation in 2012. It is the first of its kind, an interdisciplinary project addressed to academia, implemented abroad and devoted wholly to the study of modern Poland and its transformations since 1989.
The project was initially implemented at Oxford’s St Antony’s College. In 2016 it changed its mode of operation and turned into a grant programme, open to all applying research institutions from Great Britain, engaged in studies on modern Poland. In the first round of the call for applications, in the Autumn 2016, five prestigious institutions were awarded with grants: Royal Holloway, University of London; London School of Economics; King’s College London; University of York and Queen’s University in Belfast.
