Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange has announced the list of projects co-financed under the program "Welcome to Poland" (call for proposals 2022). Among the projects that received funding was the MUB Project " e-Window to the world. Providing access to prestigious e-journals and English-language educational platforms" (acronym: E-WINDOW) worth PLN 399,000.00 PLN (up to a maximum of PLN 400,000.00).
The project will be implemented for 24 months, from 01.06.2023 to 31.05.2025. Its implementation will take place in cooperation with other units of the University.
The project includes a number of tasks related to enriching the MUB's offer with modern, digital tools that improve the quality of studying, allowing deepening knowledge, e.g. thanks to prestigious scientific journals, interactive educational platforms or an innovative programme that facilitates the teaching of human physiology. All tools will be offered in English, the recipients of the project will be primarily foreign university stakeholders - students, PhD students and academic staff of the MUB.
Thanks to the project, access to two interactive databases with medical knowledge will be provided: AccessEmergencyMedicine and AccessSurgery. In addition, access to 8 foreign journals, which are flagship periodicals in their fields, the BrowZine e-journal Viewer application and the PhysioEx 10.0 programme for learning Physiology will be purchased. Facilitating on-line communication both with people from abroad and within the university will be ensured by the purchase of a license for Zoom software intended for organizing meetings over the Internet.
The project proposal was written by employees of the International Cooperation Department - Sylwia Klepacka and Jakub Wszeborowski. Supervision over the preparation of the application was carried out by Tomasz Maliszewski, PhD - Head of the International Cooperation Department and prof. dr hab. Tomasz Hryszko - Rector's Plenipotentiary for International Cooperation.
The E-WINDOW project is the ninth co-financed project under the NAWA "Welcome to Poland" programme, which makes the Medical University of Bialystok the largest beneficiary of this programme, actively participating in every announced recruitment (starting from 2018).
