The main task of the unit is to support PIs, heads of departments, and specialized laboratories, and teams by ensuring their efficient communication with internal units of IBCH PAS, including the Director's Division, General Administration, Research Coordination, and Financial Affairs Division.

This task is carried out through the following activities:

  1. Providing organizational support to PIs in the functioning of their departments, specialized laboratories, and teams. 

  2. Supervising and coordinating the implementation process of projects within the organizational context, from the submission stage of the PI's application for planned project participation to its completion and the presentation of the final report. 

  3. Overseeing and coordinating the expenditure process during project implementation. 

  4. Monitoring and coordinating the fulfillment of orders for projects and departments, including orders for chemicals, materials, apparatus, services, office supplies, computer supplies, conference fees, open access fees, and others. 

  5. Continuously improving the competences of Unit employees in project management, including R&D projects, and developing soft skills such as communication skills, creativity, goal orientation, time management, good organizational skills, crisis management, willingness to learn, and self-development.

    Additionally, we carry out activities within working groups:

  6. Supporting new foreign employees in the relocation process and during their stay in Poland. We provide assistance in:
    - collecting documents for a visa and residence card,
    - finding accommodation for the duration of your stay in Poland,
    - completing official and private formalities related to your stay (such as: PESEL, bank account, family doctor, kindergarten/school)
