The aim of the Society is to consolidate the outstanding Polish relativists in the thriving environment, worldwide promotion of the information about the Polish achievements in relativity, bringing to Poland the knowledge of achievements of other communities in the area of the theory of relativity, the provision of the best possible conditions for Polish students, postgraduates and young scientists to help start their own research at the highest level in the modern fields of relativistic physics and mathematics of space-time.

Congratulations to Professor Andrzej Trautman (in Polish). (2017)
Prof. Andrzej Trautman has received the Foundation for Polish Science Prize 2017 for the theoretical demonstration of the reality of gravitational waves. (2017)
Press conference and scientific panel about new discoveries in gravitational waves astronomy. (2017)
The Nobel Prize in Physics in 2017 has been awarded for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves. The laureates are Barry C. Barish, Kip S. Thorne and Rainer Weiss. (2017)
