As the Vistula Group of Universities (VGU) continuously expands and approaches new markets in the higher education sector, our ambition is to be even more recognized internationally in areas that are most important for the global academic community. We, therefore, not only seek excellence in teaching and delivery of the most up-to-date knowledge to our students through innovative methods but also, we want to be creators of knowledge that brings the highest added value to industry, academia and society at large. This is why we put forward a number of the 2020-2021 VISTULA Fellowships to researchers from foreign universities.
The aims of the Fellowships are:
- to foster long-term interdisciplinary research collaborations,
- to prepare and publish high-quality research in 2021 that are of significant socio-economic impact; co-authorship with the Vistula University research staff is highly encouraged.
The 2020-2021 VISTULA Fellowships are based within four research clusters, namely:
- Economics and Finance,

All research at the Vistula University is coordinated by our interdisciplinary Science and Research Centre. For detailed information, please visit: vistula.edu.pl/en/science-and-research.
