On 30th November, the University of Warsaw hosted a meeting with representatives of British universities, government agencies and the British Embassy. One of the main objectives of the British delegation’s stay in Poland was to establish cooperation in teaching and research with Polish universities.

The meeting was attended by representatives of twelve British universities, including the University of Essex, Goldsmiths University of London, and Cardiff University. The main topic of discussion was developing scientific cooperation between Polish and British universities as well as enhancing exchange programmes for students and doctoral candidates.


“The University of Warsaw aims to create an extensive network of international partners, especially in the field of research. Poland has a long tradition of cooperation with the UK in the area of education, dating back to the 1980s. We are keen to further develop this positive relationship,” Prof. Zygmunt Lalak, the UW Vice-Rector for Research, said.


During the meeting, the possibilities for didactic cooperation, joint medical research, exchange of students and doctoral candidates as well as the use of modern technology in medical education were discussed.
