The National Information Processing Institute (OPI PIB) is a scientific partner of the Multidisciplinary Research Centre project. The project is led by Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University (UKSW) in Warsaw, where a unique digital science research centre is being established. The primary role of the centre is to develop and implement innovative digital solutions to strengthen the Polish economy and to support public authorities in accomplishing their goals concerning digital transformation.
The centre will also serve as a focal point for development teams of associated innovative private companies that closely collaborate with the centre’s scientific groups.
The centre focuses on application issues, which is reflected in both its structure and the scope of its activities. Modern infrastructure that is adapted to the needs of advanced technology will enable innovative research, world class scientific and development works to be conducted. The centre is being established in response to growing demand for information and communication technologies for use in all fields of research – including the social sciences and humanities. The project meets the needs and expectations of today’s research and business communities.
Currently, no centre in Poland brings together experts in data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cybersecurity, medicine, technology, the humanities, and the natural and social sciences.
Developing an interdisciplinary centre enables the preparation of a unique interdisciplinary research offer that addresses the needs of the science and business sectors more efficiently. This will enhance the research capacities of Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University and the other consortium members.
