University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest is the oldest and most prestigious engineer school in Romania. Its traditions are related to the establishment, in 1818, by Gheorghe Lazăr, of the first higher technical school with teaching in Romanian
The Center for Advanced Research on New Materials, Products and Innovative Processes – CAMPUS – is the UPB’s flagship advanced research & development center for multi- and inter- disciplinary technologies.
CAMPUS is uniquely designed, both from the infrastructure point of view, as well as functionality.
CAMPUS integrates 43 research labs, spread over more than 8,000 square meters, equipped at high standards. The labs are connected in a complete inter-disciplinary technological flow, starting with the study of materials (e.g., chemical engineering), going to electrical engineering and electronics (e.g., circuits, antennas), power and mechanics (e.g., alternative energy sources, environmental protection), and then telecommunications, information technologies (e.g., multimedia processing) and computer science (e.g., artificial intelligence).
The National Institute for Research and Development in Microtechnologies – IMT Bucharest was set up at the end of 1996. The institute is the successor of Institute for Microtechnologies-IMT, funded in 1993, which merged with Research Institute for Electronic Components, founded in 1969.

The Institute currently consists of six large research departments, the Center for Science Education and Training and ISS branch.
The beginning of the National Institute of Research and Development for Technical Physics (NIRDTP) is marked in 1951 when, in the frame of Romanian Academy – Iaşi branch, the Physical and Technical Research Division was founded under the leadership of Prof. Teofil T. VESCAN and scientific coordination of Prof. Stefan PROCOPIU. The Physical and Technical Research Division later became the Technical Physics Centre (1977) under the coordination of the National Committee for Nuclear Energy of Romania. In February 1990, the Technical Physics Centre became the Institute of Technical Physics Iaşi, unit with legal personality, component of the Institute of Atomic Physics of Bucharest. In 1996, the institute has been assessed and accredited as National Institute of Research and Development for Technical Physics.
NIRDTP conducts research, development and innovation activities in the field of materials with novel structures and properties, devices, apparatus and equipment based on such materials, new preparation methods and characterisation techniques and non-destructive evaluation, electrical and magnetic separation methods, special materials and devices with applications in engineering, medicine and biotechnology.
The main scientific and technological research activities are focused on:
• Fundamental research: new models and phenomena, new theoretical aspects;
• Applied research: new materials and applications, new R&D equipment;
• Technological research: novel technologies for manufacturing new materials, including nanomaterials and nanostructured/nanocomposite materials; design and fabrication of new devices and technological equipment;
• Laboratory-scale production: materials, devices, systems and equipment for both laboratory research and small-scale production activities.
Researchers and designers of 3 different organizations merged into one single entity: the Institute of Non-ferrous and Rare Metals – IMNR.
The institute focused on the promotion of hundreds of technologies, feasibility studies, and complex projects in the industry field.
Over 220 new alloys (powders, bands, wires, etc.) were made within IMNR for national economic agents as well as for export.
IMNR became National Institute of Research and Development with a new organizational structure consisting of 4 big laboratories:
• Ecotechnologies and environment protection
• Advanced materials and technologies
• Nanostructured materials
• Physical-chemical and structural analyses
The Centre for Technology Transfer in Advanced Materials was created. The institute continued the micro-production of new materials.

NANORIGO – a Risk Governance Framework and Council for Nanomaterials and Nano-enabled Products
NANORIGO (NANOtechnology RIsk GOvernance) started on 1st January 2019. Coordinated by Aarhus University and involving 26 other partners from across Europe, this 50 month, €4.7 million project will develop and implement a transparent, transdisciplinary and active Risk Governance Framework (RGF) for manufactured nanomaterials and nano-enabled products. The RGF will be developed through engagement with stakeholders across research, industry, regulation and civil society, and will be based on high-quality scientific data and tools for the physicochemical (pc) characterization of nanomaterials, and the assessment of exposure, hazard and risk for humans and the environment.
To implement the RGF, NANORIGO will develop a sustainable, multi-stakeholder Nanotechnology Risk Governance Council (NRGC) to provide credible, transparent and objective advice to all stakeholder groups.
The NANORIGO consortium will work closely with the two other projects funded under the NMBP-13-2018 call: RiskGONE and Gov4Nano, to ensure a sustainable and equitable RGF and NRGC is developed for all.
NANORIGO has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 814530.
