Pursuant to the rulebook of the programme, in its selection of projects to be completed, the committee considered the formal requirements of the applications and a number of substantive criteria which are provided for in the rulebook, and in particular: the adequacy of the submitted topics for the objectives of the programme, uniqueness of the research and the time needed to conduct it, realistic and manageable schedule and timetable of the research works with regard to their completion and delivery to the Institute before the deadline as specified in the rulebook, as well as the previous achievements of the researchers and their scientific experience and competence in the area they propose to research.

The projects selected to be financially supported concern the following issues:

  • the areas of knowledge on the widely-conceived Polish culture in terms of music and dance that have been clearly under-researched or neglected;
  • research into those phenomena in the Polish culture in terms of music and dance that have been entirely or partly overlooked, as well as those areas for which research has been started but not completed;
  • documentation, edition and interpretation of source materials which are hard to find, dispersed, obscure or otherwise not sufficiently researched.

The selected projects cover a broad range of subjects, including traditional music and dance, diverse historical eras, from the eighteenth century until now, as well as a variety of genres.

Persons responsible for the implementation of the Programme:

Katarzyna Meissner – Director of the Institute of Music and Dance

Aleksandra Dziurosz – Deputy Director of the Institute of Music and Dance
