The Kashubian Institute - a society of scholars connected in various ways with Kashubia and Pomerania - was grounded in Gdansk in 1996. Among its founders and members are scholars from different academic centres in Poland and abroad; a majority of them represent the humanities. The aims of the Institute comprise initiation and conducting of scientific research, publishing activity and supporting young scholars. To date, achievements of the KI include scores of conferences and over a hundred publications, such as basic works on the history and sociology of Kashubians, biographies of outstanding Kashubian activists and writers, volumes of prose and poetry, as well as memoirs and monographs of tows and villages. The Institute, with the help of external financial assistance, cooperates with the Kashubian-Pomeranian Association and the Museum of Kashubian-Pomeranian Literature and Music in Wejherowo as well as with other similar institutions in Poland and Europe, also with Kashubian communities in America. An important part of the activity of the KI is collaboration with teachers within the scope of regional education - not only in Kashubia but also other regions of Pomerania. The 'trademark' of the KI is the yearbook 'Acta Cassubiana'.
