The LIDER (leader) programme is addressed to scientists that undertake research in various scientific fields. Its main goal is to help young researchers strengthen their competencies of planning, management and research team leadership through the realization of scientific projects that yield industrially implementable results.
The LIDER programme is both unique and complementary to the other programmes of the Polish system of research financing. It is a strong foundation that empowers the competitiveness of Polish science and the new generation of researchers in the European and global reality. It also fits well within the current worldwide trend to create specialized financing instruments addressed to young scientists.
