IDEAS NCBR extends cooperation with the foreign research centres

IDEAS NCBR signed the understanding on cooperation with Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering Antonio Ruberti (DIAG) of Sapienza University of Rome. DIAG is one of the leading Italian faculties in such areas as AI, algorithmics, robotics, and security.

DIAG is the fourth centre IDEAS NCBR has signed the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with this year. So far, the declaration of cooperation with the Warsaw research and development centre was signed by CVC in Barcelona, the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics at the National Taiwan University, and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam.

“We want to simultaneously build a network of connections at Polish universities and successively establish relations with foreign universities and research centres. I know from experience, that the opportunity to complete an internship or work in a foreign research centre is an extremely valuable experience. These activities will give us ability us to transfer knowledge, participate in interesting research projects or jointly apply for EU funds for research projects. Cooperation with La Sapienza faculty is particularly pleasing because I have fond memories of the time spent at this university – effective scientific cooperation, which turns into joint scientific supervision of students”

explains Professor Piotr Sankowski


The understanding has been concluded for 4 years. During this time, the centres will focus on conducting joint programs for doctoral students, cooperation in research projects and exchanges for researchers, as well as joint applications for European grants. Research projects will focus on algorithmic foundations of Data Science, AI for security, applications of machine learning in industry, medicine and digital economy.

We are very glad of starting a tight collaboration with IDEAS NCBR that is emerging as a leading European center of research in AI, algorithms, and security and the application of these key technologies in industry and society. We are very proud to have hosted the President of IDEAS NCBR Piotr Sankowski for his postdoctoral training and we look forward to exchanging more brilliant PhD students and postdoctoral researchers on both sides in the coming 4 years” – explains Stefano Leonardi PhD, Professor at DIAG – Sapienza University of Rome, leader of the Algorithms and Data Science research group.

The visibility of IDEAS NCBR on the international arena is gradually increasing. Apart from signed agreements with foreign research centres and universities, in 2022 five of the scientists working at IDEAS NCBR have also joined ELLIS Society (European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems). It is European network of researchers with outstanding scientific achievements who focus their work on the most important challenges in basic research and innovation and their impact on society. The members of ELLIS Society are: Tomasz Trzciński Ph.D., Professor at the Warsaw University of Technology and Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Tomasz Michalak Ph.D., Piotr Sankowski Ph.D., Professor at the University of Warsaw, Bartosz Zieliński Ph.D, Piotr Miłoś Ph.D., Professor of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

A team of Polish scientists has created an AI algorithm that was at the forefront of the work adopted for this year’s ICLR (International Conference on Learning Representations). Their work combines machine learning with classical algorithmics and helps artificial intelligence independently construct the next steps to solve complex problems. Thanks to such solutions, it will be possible, for example, to build robots that are better able to perform more complex tasks.
