Innovative Technologies for Quality Assurance of Materials in Health, Energy and Environment

Organisation: Focus Eco Center Website: Added: June 28, 2023
Project start date: October 26, 2016
Project end date: December 31, 2019


The establishment of the Centre for Innovative Manufacturing Solutions for Intelligent Biomaterials and Biomedical Surfaces (INOVABIOMED) has brought a major benefit by increasing and knowledge transfer capacity, ensuring the conditions for the development of an economic cluster of excellence in Romania, of which the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (UPB) is part. The project targets innovative technologies for ensuring the quality of materials in health, energy and the environment, and the beneficiaries will be those working in various fields such as: university hospitals and medical clinics, industry, SMEs, environmental specialists from local, regional and central administrative units and NGOs. All these categories will have access to new technologies and products to help improve the health of the population. The INOVABIOMED project is relevant because of the sustainable development it proposes in all its components, but especially because of the scale of the positive effects on society as a whole.

In Romania the research and innovation units/entities face serious problems in the last period, especially the research which is focusing on the sustainable development. In this situation the projects which are focusing to the sustainable development are very important and it is important that from the EU sources can be financed such innovative projects. Our recommendation it to invest in research and innovation in the future projects, and support these projects with finances from EU.
