About Us

      The National Institute for Materials Physics ( NIMP) Bucharest is devoted to fundamental and applied research and development, with particular emphasis in the fields of solid state physics and materials research. NIMP develops as a CENTER OF EXCELLENCE for international cooperation (R&D projects and networks with support for EU, bilateral agreements) and high-level education (PhD, MSc, training courses) and provides a frame for interdisciplinary research in the materials science. The institute management has tried deliberately to develop a balanced policy of basic and application-oriented research. Much effort was devoted to the applied research, devices and technologies based on new advanced materials.

      National Intitute of Materials Physics

      The NIMP finances the major part of its activities through National R&D Programs included in PNCDI, promoted by the Romanian Ministery for Education and Research (MEC). However, a part of the activity of the Institute is financed through an important number of academic grants and projects funded by EU programmes.
     The institute has presently about 234 workers, of which 186 are directly involved in research activities. NIMP has 150 researchers, and among them are 15 PhD supervisors, 96 doctors, 40 PhD students, and 12 Master students. 30 of the Institute researchers have experience in laboratories abroad, gained during long stages.

     Goals :

  • The preparation, characterization and study of the physical properties of new materials connected to high technology products and devices
  • The development of analytical techniques and methods applied in materials science.
  • Training of young scientists, PhD and MSc students,students and technicians.
  • Supply the public institutions and companies with the Institute.s R&D know-how and expertise.
  • Collaboration with the universities and other higher education establishments.
  • Development of international collaboration, especially based on EU funded projects.
