- Foundation of the Poznań inter-university school in mathematical statistics and biometry, which has become one of the most important schools of this type in Poland and has been well recognized world wide.
- Promotions of 24 Ph.D. students in mathematical statistics and biometry. Thirteen of them have received the D.Sc. degree and now occupy important positions in academical education and science. Ten of them have already been awarded the (state) title of Professor of Mathematical or Agricultural Sciences.
- Stimulation of interest in mathematical statistics and biometry among mathematicians, particularly by initiating and then chairing for several years the Commission for Mathematical Statistics at the Committee for the Mathematical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
- Promotion and dissemination of statistical and biometrical methods among students and research workers from various fields of science, both by teaching and consulting. This has received high recognition, expressed, e.g., by invitations to give courses of lectures abroad (in Italy, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Germany and Portugal).
- Initiation of and contribution to fruitful international co-operation between Polish statisticians and biometricians and their colleagues in various countries (particularly in Netherlands, France, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Japan and Portugal).
