The TOP 15 Program

TOP 15 is a program for our best students. In cooperation with a scientific supervisor of their choice, they conduct research and then present their results in the form of scientific papers published in special notebooks. The TOP 15 program exists since 2007. Students also participate in a series of seminars and workshops aimed at developing their research competence.

TOP 15 is open to students in the second, third, fourth and fifth year, regardless of their field of study or mode of study. Each year the Program accepts a maximum of 15 students. Candidates are expected to be primarily interested in research, as well as to be independent, systematic and self-disciplined, as this is what scientific work requires.


Participation in the TOP 15 Program is associated with a number of benefits:

  • Know-how - TOP 15 provides unique know-how for research projects. This knowledge is extremely useful in business practice as well as in scientific activity.
  • Cooperation with a mentor - participation in the Program provides an opportunity for scientific development under the guidance of a selected mentor.
