Research projects

We carry out research projects making use of grants provided by the National Center for Research and Development, the National Science Center, public and private sponsors, and our own funds. Among the dozens of ongoing research projects, there is no shortage of interdisciplinary, intercollegiate, and international ones. The efficient administrative and technical support provided by the Research and Faculty Development Office is invaluable to our researchers. Learn about the projects carried out at Kozminski University and become familiar with their results.



The Kozminski University publishing house has been operating since 1996. It publishes academic textbooks and monographs written by academics. We work with publishers such as Wolters Kluwer Polska, Wydawnictwo Poltext, Wydawnictwo Naukowe Scholar, which guarantee reliable editing and proofreading services. We published several listed scored scientific journals which make their content available to the broad public.


Our university organizes around one hundred scientific conferences and seminars per year, more than half of which are held in collaboration with other universities and scientific institutions (from both Poland and abroad). They act as an effective channel of exchange of information, providing an opportunity to disseminate research results in the form of post-conference monographs and publications presenting the results of the conducted research projects. The conferences organized at KU are attended by world-famous economists, management gurus, and Nobel prizewinners – such as: Robert Mundell, Vito Tanzi, D. Mario Nuti, Janos Kornai, or Hermann Simon.
