The history of POLATOM's activity dates back to the 1950s and was associated with the Institute for Nuclear Research (IBJ). In 1990, the POLATOM Isotope Research and Development Center was established, from which POLATOM Spółka z o.o. was separated in 2005. As a result of the merger with the Institute of Atomic Energy operating in Otwock-Świerk, since November 2007 it operated under the name of the Institute of Atomic Energy POLATOM Radioisotope Center. On September 1, 2011 Institute of Atomic Energy POLATOM The Radioisotope Center was incorporated, along with the entire IEA POLATOM, into the Institute for Nuclear Studies; the combined institutes took the name of the National Center for Nuclear Research. From that moment POLATOM is active under it's full name: National Centre for Nuclear Research – Radioisotope Centre POLATOM.
