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.
