POLISH SCIENCE DAY AT MEDICAL UNIVERSITY OF BIALYSTOK
The Museum of the History of Medicine and Pharmacy of the Medical University of Bialystok joins first to the celebration of the Polish Science Day. On this occasion, together with the Association of Academic Museums, we present an exhibition on the academic heritage of Polish universities. The project aims to make the public aware of the importance of academic heritage as an important determinant of national identity.
The exhibition entitled: "Academic Museums for Independent” presents the scientific achievements of Polish universities, which celebrate anniversaries in the years 2019-2022. The year 2020 is particularly important from the perspective of the history of the Medical University of Bialystok, which celebrates its 70th anniversary.
The exhibition "Academic Museums for Independent” is part of the project of the same name, which was co-financed by the Multiannual Program “Niepodległa” (Independent Poland) for the years 2017-2022 as part of the "Niepodległa" Subsidy Program.
The exhibition can be seen in the Branicki Palace lobby from February 19th to March 15th, 2020.
"According to the Act, the Polish Science Day should be an expression of recognition for the achievements of Polish scientists. The date of annual celebration is February 19th- the birthday of Nicolaus Copernicus, in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the field of astronomy. The Polish Science Day is an inspiration to follow the footsteps of Polish researchers and strengthen interest in science."
