The Warsaw Centre of Mathematics and Computer Science comprises the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of the University of Warsaw (a member institution of PLERCIM) together with the Institute of Mathematics, Polish Academy of Sciences. This Centre has won the status of Leading National Research Centre in Mathematical Sciences (Krajowy Naukowy Ośrodek Wiodący, KNOW). In total there have been only three winning nominations (Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry) in Science and three in Health Sciences, as the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Eucation, Barbara Kudrycka, announced on 12 July in the presence of the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. The award comes with a substantial grant which will provide financing of the Centre for the next five years with an option of an extension for another five years.
