I'm going to spend 3 months in Poland (January to March)in an internship program and I should chose between Poznan and Warsaw to live. What about the cost of living in these cities? Which one is the cheapest? Is it possible to measure how much I should take?

It depends how flamboyant your lifestyle is. Assuming you're on tight budget but still want some level of quality I'll give you sample prices from Warsaw.
If you want to rent a room in a shared flat in Warsaw it's ~600PLN per month. Studios are in the range 1000-1500PLN per month. You probably will need to give refundable deposit equal to the monthly rent fee.
Food is quite cheap if you buy from Lidl / Tesco / Auchan. Sample prices:
- apples 2.30 / kg,
- cheese ~25 / kg
- bananas - 3.90 / kg
- 400 mln yoghurt - 1.90,
- raw chiken breast - ~25 /kg
- good quality smoked ham - ~55 / kg
As for food etc I would say you could go by spending 700-900PLN per month and live quite decent life. Add some more for extras like beer (~9PLN in pubs) and eating out (from 25PLN up for main dish) from time to time.
