During the Polish Science Gala held on 19 February, the Minister of Science and Higher Education's prizes were awarded to 138 scientists. Among those honoured for outstanding scientific achievements was prof. dr hab. inż. Jacek Banasiak (representing the Institute of Mathematics).


The Polish Science Day is celebrated on 19 February – to commemorate the birthday of Nicolaus Copernicus, in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the field of astronomy. As stated in the justification to the Act of 9 January 2020, the establishment of the date of the annual celebrations was "an expression of the highest recognition for the achievements of Polish scientists in the over 1000-year history of our nation and state."  

We are proud to announce that prof. Jacek Banasiak representing the Institute of Mathematics, together with prof. Wilson Lamb (University of Strathclyde) and prof. Philippe Laurençot (Universite de Toulouse) was honoured with the Award of the Minister of Education and Science for outstanding scientific achievements.

The award was based on the fundamental results obtained by the authors in fragmentation and coagulation theory, presented in the two-volume monograph Analytic Methods for Coagulation-Fragmentation Models, CRC Press (Taylor &Francis Group), 2020 and in a number of articles published in leading international journals.
