International dimension of safety
An extraordinarily dynamic development in the Institute’s international cooperation has taken place within the last years, especially following Poland’s accession to the EU, and this cooperation now constitutes a very important part of the Institute’s activity. It mainly appears in the form of international projects; bilateral cooperation with foreign centres, scientific networks and international organisations; participation in the works of advisory bodies to the European Commission; and the participation of Institute employees in foreign scientific conferences, as well as the organisation of such conferences and other meetings at the Institute. The Institute has also participated in projects within European Union Framework Programmes. The first of those projects were realized under the EU 5th Framework Programme (1998-2002), and the participation gradually increased in successive EU Framework Programmes. The Institute's involvement in Framework Programmes projects is increasing every year. Currently CIOP-PIB is actively participating in Horizon 2020 projects.
The most important international projects conducted with significant Institute participation within EU Framework Programmes include:
The Institute cooperates internationally within network structures. At present, they include:
For many years now, the Institute has been cooperating with the most prominent international organisations operating in occupational safety and health – the International Labour Organisation and its component unit – the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, as the Agency’s Focal Point nominated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.
The Institute employees have frequently been delegated by the Polish Government / Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy to represent Poland on such European Commission bodies as:
The participation of Institute employees in the most prominent international scientific conferences and seminars, and their presentations of the results of research conducted at the Institute in the form of lectures and posters, have made it possible to create and popularise the image of the Institute as a competent scientific entity in occupational health and safety and ergonomics which is recognised on the international forum. In practice, this has resulted, among other things, in the Institute’s scientific employees being invited to participate in numerous international projects.
