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.
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.
