About the Institute

Structure of ITP

The organizational structure of the Institute has the features staff-linear and functional structure. The head of the Institute is the Director, to whom the top management of ITP is directly subordinate to: scientific deputy director, deputy director for administrative and technical affairs, deputy director for economic affairs, chief accountant. In this structure, top management creates a staff unit (council of directors) - specialized support for the Director for management of the Institute. The most important decisions are made solely by the Director, and the Director is responsible for the functioning of the Institute. On the other hand, the staff unit gathers information, prepares decisions, gives recommendations, conducts forecasting and so on.

The second level of organisation concerning research and development units (educational institutions, regional research centers) has a functional structure. At this level multilateral subordination applies. The managers are subject to the top management of ITP within specified limits. Each member of the management is partially responsible for the operation of the Institute. Director and top management ITP directly manage supportive, technical, and service units (departments, sections, positions) that perform tasks for the benefit of research units. Similar units function at lower levels of organization (branches, regional research centers, experimental departments).

The functional structure does not apply to ITP Research Laboratory. In this part of the Institute is organized according to the staff-linear structure (Director and the Staff Cell - Laboratory Manager - supervisors of individual laboratories).

The Institute of Technology and Life Sciences has two scientific divisions:

  1. agricultural engineering division,
  2. agro-environmental division (agronomy and environmental management).

The Institute consists of:

  1. Headquarters in Falenty
  2. Branch in Warsaw with Masovian Reseach Centre in Kłudzienko
  3. Branch in Poznań
  4. Lower Silesian Research Centre in Wrocław with Field Station in Kamieniec Wrocławski
  5. Kujawsko-Pomorski Research Centre in Bydgoszcz
  6. Małopolski Research Centre in Kraków with Field Station in Jaworki and Mountain Centre of Studies and Implementations in Tylicz
