Basic and applied research is aimed at areas of long-term importance for both Slovenia and the world: materials research, life sciences research, biotechnology, chemical engineering, structural and theoretical chemistry, analytical chemistry and environmental protection, whereby the Institute is aligned with the needs of domestic and foreign pharmaceutical, chemical, automotive, and nano-biotechnology industries. The Institute’s work is also in tune with the priorities of the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, which places the circular economy at the forefront. Research is aimed at the development of new technologies and products which will help ensure the sustainable development of Slovenia, and which are at the same time also internationally topical.
