The Building Research Institute conducts research works in the field of construction, with the view of their implementation and practical application. The ITB is supervised by the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. For 75 years, thanks to the experienced staff using the most modern research methodologies and specialist measurement equipment, we support development of construction both in the country and abroad. ITB headquarters is located in Warsaw. The main activities are:

  • Research Works.
  • National and International Projects.
  • Building Expertise.
  • Testing of Construction Products and Structures in the Accredited Group of Testing Laboratories.
  • Innovation and Knowledge Dissemination.
  • European Technical Assessments, National Technical Assessments and Technical Recommendations.
  • Worldwide Certification.


Warsaw University of Technology builds upon the traditions of Polish technical universities that used to function in Warsaw – the Polytechnic Institute founded in 1826 thanks to the efforts of Stanisław Staszic and the School of Hipolit Wawelberg and Stanisław Rotwand established in 1895.

Warsaw University of Technology started on its own in 1915 thanks to the efforts of the Association for Scientific Courses and the Citizens’ Committee of the City of Warsaw.

Working uninterruptedly, the University has been producing generations of graduates and has had an increasing number of scientific and technical achievements. It is not only the oldest, but also the best technical university in Poland; in the ranking of Polish universities, it has taken the first place in its category for fifteen years.


International Congress of Polymers in Concrete (ICPIC) is an international forum that realizes worldwide distribution and sharing of knowledge, experience, technology of polymers in concrete in all industrial and scientific fields.

Material, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Transportation Engineering.
Fundamental knowledge : Physical, Chemical, Material, Structural, Composition, Production, Application, Durability behavior.
Concrete-polymer composites for prefabricated elements: on site construction materials and on site protection and repair materials.

ICPIC community organizes an ICPIC congress that has been taking place every few years for the last 40 years with the objective of progress in the field of polymers and their use in concrete and construction.
