The Institute is located in Warsaw. It is dedicated to researching and promoting the life and works of Polish composer Frédéric Chopin, (born in Poland as Fryderyk Chopin). Its activities include publications, organization of concerts, conserving the physical and artistic Chopin heritage, monitoring the commercial use of Chopin's name and operating a Chopin Information Centre (the Institute's website). Amongst its publication projects is a complete facsimile edition of Chopin's works, compiled from all available holograph manuscripts, edited by Zofia Chechlińska.
The Institute is also organizing a festival Chopin and his Europe since 2005. It presents European music in the context of its links with the life and work of Chopin. One of the objectives of the festival programme is historical performance - presenting works as they were originally heard, on period instruments. The festival is organised in collaboration with the Warsaw Philharmonic, Teatr Wielki - Polish National Opera and Polish Radio II.
