Radom Scientific Society

The main goal of the Radom Scientific Society (Radomskie Towarzystwo Naukowe, RTN) is to stimulate and conduct scientific research on the Radom region as well as to document and promote knowledge about the region. We are involved in regional studies from various perspectives: history, geography, contemporary socio-economic life, development prospects, spatial and transport policy.

The second strategic goal is the comprehensive development of the academic centre and stimulation of scientific activity, especially, but not only, in Radom. We provide constructive advice to public authorities, we participate in social debate, we are present in the media. We take actions to integrate the scientific community. Whenever possible, we support all research and publishing initiatives, in particular those undertaken by members of the Society.

The present Society – established in 1963 – follows the tradition of the Scientific Society (Towarzystwo Naukowe) established in the 1820s at the Radom Voivodeship School (Szkoła Wojewódzka Radomska) on the initiative of its rector, priest Piarist Kazimierz Kłaczyński. We are still guided by the then slogan, taken from the ancient Isocrates: “The roots of knowledge are bitter, but its fruits are sweet.” We also acknowledge the heritage of the Scientific and Social Institute, a unique project undertaken in Radom in 1945 with the participation of the philosopher Tadeusz Kotarbiński and a young scientist Stefan Witkowski, later the first president of RTN.

The members and associates of the Society include both academics and practitioners of other professions. The areas of scientific research or professional work of our members include: philosophy, pedagogy, medicine, law and economics, philology and library studies, mathematics, physics and chemistry, history and archeology, geography, urban planning and architecture, transport, technical sciences, art and musicology.
