  • Energy, environment and climatic changes;
  • Eco-nano-technologies and advanced materials;

Through NSRDI 2014-2020 an important role will be set for Health, considered as a priority area of public interest for the current strategic cycle. Health is a field having a critical importance for life quality and public resources. Only the indirect impact of population health represents some percentage of GDP. An essential contribution in this field is brought by the research and experimental development, impacting not only the individual and general wealth, but also society’s economical perspectives.
