Faculty of Philosophy was set up (included natural sciences)

May 7, 1919

University of Poznan - official inauguration


Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science
Research in physics was carried out in:
Labolatory of Experimental Physics (1919-1937 A. Danizot, 1937-1939 H.Niewodniczanski)
Laboratory of Theoretical Physics (T. Peczalski)
Laboratory of Medical Physics (since 1922 - Faculty of Medicine)


In the post-war years Physics was re-introduced at the University in Collegium Chemicum (Grunwaldzla 9)
Labolatory of Experimental Physics (Sz. Szczeniowski)
