START is the oldest scholarship program in Poland for the best young scientists representing all scientific fields. Its aim is to support outstanding young scientists and encourage them to pursue their scientific development. Winners of the START program receive an annual scholarship of PLN 28,000. zloty. They can use them for any purpose.
Since 2009, the Foundation has also awarded awards under the START program to applicants whose research achievements have been deemed outstanding by competition reviewers. The scholarships for these people will be increased to PLN 36,000. zloty. This year, five winners were awarded. He became one of them Radoslaw Zajdel.

Radoslaw Zajdel is the author or co-author of scientific articles published in leading journals. Using the Galileo system, he determined the value of an anomaly in the rotation of the Earth, which is burdened with fourteen times less drift than the same value determined with the use of the American GPS system. The results of his research have a significant impact on the development of various disciplines in the field of exact and technical sciences. They have also been appreciated internationally. Radosław Zajdel has presented papers at numerous conferences: incl. IUGG in Montreal, Canada (2019), Galileo Colloquium organized by ETH in Zurich (2019) and at the 21st International Workshop on Laser Ranging in Canberra, Australia (2018). He has been awarded many prestigious prizes, for example by the European Space Agency during the Galileo Colloquium in Valencia in 2017.

Recall that in recent years, the START scholarship has been awarded, among others, to: Grzegorz Bury (IGiG UPWr, 2020 edition), Kamila Pawłuszek-Filipiak (IGiG UPWr, 2020 edition), Kamil Kaźmierski (IGiG UPWr, 2019 edition), Anna Kłos (WILiG WAT, 2018), Karina Wilgan (IGiG UPWr, 2017) and Krzysztof Sośnica (IGiG UPWr, 2016).
