Ladies and Gentlemen – all of you who make up the community of the University of Silesia!
I wish you good health, peace and hope for a good future during the Christmas season and for the whole 2022.
As a community of people of science, we have a special strength and opportunities to find solutions to particularly difficult problems. We proved it by ensuring the continuity of education during the epidemic. I would like to thank you for that.
We can say that 22 December 2021 is proof for us that we are able to create extraordinary things even in the most difficult times . From that day, we already know that on the initiative of the University of Silesia, thanks to many months of joint work of many people from our university, Katowice City Hall, and other Katowice universities; thanks to the help of friends from Poland and Europe, Katowice received the title of the European City of Science for 2024.
I perceive it as a great opportunity for the University of Silesia and all Silesian universities to become important and regular participants in European scientific life.
I sincerely wish you that your achievements and the immeasurable possibilities of our academic community will fill you with confidence, and that a better future is possible.
Rector of the University of Silesia
