The International Scientific Committee (ISC) is an international body composed of distinguished representatives of science. Where necessary for the attainment of the project objective, it also includes entrepreneurs who have experience in cooperating with scientists in R&D work, or entrepreneurs experienced in the implementation of new technologies. Representatives of science account for at least one half of the ISC members and are globally recognized experts in the field represented by the IRAP. The main responsibility of the ISC is supervising the new unit’s research agenda. The ISC also participates in key decisions concerning the selection of research group leaders.
The International Research Agendas Programme, conducted by the Foundation for Polish Science is financed by the European fund within the Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014–2020, Measure 4.3. International Research Agendas.
