  • every scientist is responsible for the quality and reliability of research and for the education of the young generation,
  • higher education institutions and other research institutions carry out a mission of particular importance for the country and the nation: they make a key contribution to the innovativeness of the economy, contribute to the development of culture as well as to the establishment of moral standards in public life.
