University on April 27, 2004, the Roman Ingarden Philosophical Research Center was established at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. The founding of the Center was prompted by Prof. Władysław Stróżewski, PhD.

The Center launched its activities on February 23, 2005 with the appointment of the Scientific Council.

At that time its members were: the following persons:

Prof. Władysław Stróżewski – Director of the Center
Ms. Katarzyna Barska – Secretary of the Center

In addition, the following people have also been invited to the Council:

Prof. Włodzimierz Galewicz
Prof. Maria Gołaszewska
Prof. Józef Lipiec
Prof. Jerzy Perzanowski
Prof. Andrzej Półtawski
Prof. Adam Węgrzecki
Dr hab. Jan Hartman
Dr hab. Andrzej Nowak
Dr Maria Bielawka
Dr Zofia Majewska
Dr Janina Makota
Dr Bogdan Ogrodnik
Dr Leszek Sosnowski
Dr Ewa Sowa
During its fifteen years of operation, the Center has developed many valuable initiatives that demonstrate its value and reaffirm the importance of its continued existence and operation. However, it should be noted that there have been profound internal changes during this period, including changes in the membership of the Council, as well as external changes, such as the establishment of the Roman Ingarden Digital Archive at the Institute of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. A further significant circumstance for the modernization of the Center coincides with the 50th anniversary of the death of Roman Ingarden in 2020. All these facts made it necessary to nominate new members to the Center’s Council, along with a redrafting of its aims, objectives and scope of activities.
