ABOUT

Adam Smith Research Centre (Centrum im. Adama Smitha - Pierwszy Niezależny Instytut w Polsce) is the first independent scientific and research institute in the CEE and Poland.

The Centre is not associated with any political institution, it was first established in the form of a foundation on September 16, 1989.
The mission of the Adam Smith Research Centre is researching the economy and acting for a free market - built on the foundation of freedom and morals as well as a free and responsible society.

The Centre is a continuation of the Economic Action - created on December 3, 1988, which was focused on a prominent part of the then free market political opposition. At that time, the Management Board of the Economic Action was headed by Mirosław Dzielski (as a president), Andrzej Machalski and Andrzej Sadowski, who then became the main initiators and one of the founders of the Adam Smith Research Centre. The institute inaugurated its activity in November 1989 by organising a conference gathering free market economists from Poland and abroad (from Germany, Switzerland and the USA) devoted to the assessment of the government's economic program.

The Centre focuses on conducting research, education and proposing specific statutory and legal-economic solutions. Publishes brochures, books and partake television programs. Adam Smith Research Centre brings together an environment of economists, lawyers, political scientists, sociologists, IT specialists and representatives of other fields.

The Centre unprecedented achievement was the preparation and implementation of the "Law on Access to Public Information" (in 2001) and the introduction of a bill on the liquidation of the telecommunications monopoly to the Polish Parliament.

On November 29, 2004, Ph.D Robert Gwiazdowski was appointed as the President of the Center. According to public opinion polls - the Estymator Opinion and Market Research Institute published in April 2003 - Adam Smith Research Centre was already known by about 23% of Polish society. The Centre has been awarded many times for its activities, including for the Chapter of the Best Civil Initiative Pro Publico Bono (2001) or by the Foundation for Economic Education (1994, 1996).

June 22, 2006 Adam Smith Center received the title of High Reputation Brand in Poland - as a "PremiumBrand".

On December 17, 2014, during the celebration of our 25th anniversary, we announced changes in the management of the Centre, by which Andrzej Sadowski became the president of the Center and Ph.D Robert Gwiazdowski, chairman of the board.
