Research Content


IIT scientific activity is based on a 6-year strategic plan. The Strategic Plan is periodically updated under the supervision of the Scientific Technical Committee (STC). The present Strategic Plan (2018-2023) consists of four Research Domains. Each Domain contains several research lines that are coordinated by fully independent Principal Investigators (PIs). 

Facilities Content


IIT facilities contribute to the development of the  Strategic Plan. High-qualified facility staff provides scientific and technical assistance for basic and applied research, relying on state-of-art equipment. Each facility offers researchers and students an extensive range of services from essential routine to more advanced  technical and consulting services.
