In the last few years the professional concentration of research activities have been initiated. In response to recent strategic trends (eg. Smart Specialization Strategy), the development of the following three research fields have been launched:
- personalised healing/ageing,
- 3D research concept,
- smart technologies.
Special emphasis is layed on the application-oriented R&D&I activity based on industrial cooperation, which resulted in the recent expansion of the network of strategic partners of the UP and the submission of numerous project proposals of great importance to the calls of the Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme.
