Applied research for the development of new products and technologies in the following areas:
Basic and oriented fundamental research:
Analytical research and related activities carried out in its field of activity, with the approval of the coordinating ministry and, as the case may be, with authorization from the competent institutions:
The National Institute for Research & Development in Chemistry and Petrochemistry – ICECHIM Bucharest is one of the major research entities in Romania, being involved in all fields of chemistry.
Management and personnel
In 1948, at the initiative of the professors from the Department of Organic Chemistry (Polytechnic School of Bucharest), department led by Professor Costin D. Nenițescu, the Chemical Enterprises for Research, Design and Semi-Industrial Production (ICEPS) were established on the Dudești platform in Bucharest.
Technological Transfer Centre
ICECHIM’s Technological Transfer Centre (TTC) is the bridge between research groups and businesses that want to apply the results of research.
ICECHIM has a modern infrastructure and equipment, in continuous development, covering the needs of the institute in the defined development directions.
Within INCDCP-ICECHIM, several “Capacities” projects have been implemented, through which an integrated infrastructure for bionanotechnologies has been developed, which includes RDI laboratories.
ICECHIM offers a wide range of laboratory analysis services, both RENAR (Romanian Accreditation Association) accredited and non-accredited.
