The University of Gdańsk was founded on 20 March 1970. It was formed from an amalgamation of two institutions of higher education: the Higher Economics School in Sopot and the Higher Pedagogical School in Gdańsk. Later, it also included the Higher Teacher Training School. The precursor of the Higher Economics School in Sopot was the Higher School of Maritime Trade in Sopot, which opened in 1945 and awarded its first degrees in 1947. University of Gdańsk scholars and scientists are recipients of Polish and international grants and prizes. They have received grants from - among a range of institutions - The National Centre for Research and Development, The National Science Centre, and The Foundation for Polish Science. Two have won the most important scientific prize in Poland, the so-called Polish Nobel Prize, the Foundation for Polish Science Prize, awarded for outstanding scientific achievements and discoveries. This prize was won in 2008 by Professor Ryszard Horodecki and in 2013 by Professor Marek Żukowski for their work in quantum physics. The University of Gdańsk strongly promotes bi- and multi-lateral initiatives in support of science and scholarship by scientific-scholarly centres and institutions in the Baltic Region. The expansion of research, the introduction of new fields of study that provide an opportunity for multi-facetted development, and further augmentation of the infrastructure for teaching and research will allow the University of Gdańsk to confirm its leadership position among tertiary-level institutions in Poland.
