    Poland does not necessarily top the list of destinations researchers consider while planning their next career move - even if it is their home. And yet, it has much to offer. A new EU-funded grant scheme will enable 90 incoming scientists to advance their work at Polish research organisations. It will also help to consolidate the country's research community.
