Copernicus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies

Copernicus Center is an autonomous faculty of the oldest polish univeristy – the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. It carries out advanced interdisciplinary studies in all domains of sciences and humanities, including mathematics, physics, philosophy and theology. It was founded in 2008 by Prof. Rev. Michał Heller – a physicist and philosopher, the winner of the Templeton Prize.

The Copernicus Center has been awarded a number of research and popularisation grants from the John Templeton Foundation and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland.

The secondary role of the Copernicus Center consists in the popularisation of science and education.

The strategic partner of the Copernicus Center – the Copernicus Center Press – publishes scientific and popular books, as well as e-books, on various topics related to science, arts, culture and religion.

On the educational side, the Copernicus Center has launched the biggest e-learning platform – the Copernicus College offering interactive academic courses in polish.
