The Centre has the possibility and will to integrate Polish research into the physical and chemical processes taking place within the Earth and to create its own research tools in multilateral research projects, thus enabling the use of world data bases in planetology, geophysics, oceanology and geology. The creation of the Centre, with its scientific and infrastructural potential, common databases and research groups, may constitute a substantial added value, of importance on both the domestic and international scientific markets. An important factor linking the scientific activities of these institutions is the similar, indeed quite often the very same, research methodology, approaches and apparatus. GeoPlanet’s scientific community has also an important role to play in promoting the Earth Sciences.
