  • Conclusions
  • - Polish researchers have no influence on
    promotion and selection of research priorities
    important in for country,
  • - incoherent economic and payment systems with
    EU level create significant difficulties in
    formulation of proper project budgets,
  • - unequal position of parties in preparations,
    negotiations and execution of contracts
    obligations (i.e. delays on Commissions side)
