More specifically, the PROFICIENCY project targets the following scientific and technical objectives:

  • Improvement of the competence in Poland in the production of food and feedstuff of high quality and safety;
  • Improvement of risk assessment methodologies on soil and food safety issues, providing public authorities with prompt, objective, and unbiased information;
  • Successful implementation a brand new approach of interdisciplinary research performance, by provoking a continuous and deep cooperation between the Institute departments, gathered around specified priority research areas;
  • Development of national and international cooperation with high quality research institutions;
  • Organisation of courses, training days, seminars, events for agricultural producers, governmental officials, researchers, politicians, enabling IUNG to become a considerable centre for professional traineeship and for lifelong learning;
