Description of RTD activities
The applied research of the Center has been devoted to energy strategies, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, as well as the environmental impacts of various energy technologies, including greenhouse gases emissions and climate change. The results contributed to some strategic documents, adopted by the government, which shape the national policy in energy and the environment sectors.
The basic research of ICEIM-MANU has been focused on fundamental energy processes, incorporating topics from fusion physics, particle collisions and solar cell materials, as well as application of quantum approach to brain processes. Most recent is the interest in the fundamental problems concerned with the genuine concept of sustainability, including negentropic and holistic indicators.
Experiences in international Programmes
ICEIM-MANU was established in 1994 with a mission of initiating and coordinating national research programs and performing high-level research in selected fields, both applied and basic. Since then, the whole scientific activity has been realized through over forty research projects, out of which twenty nine international - funded from EC, UN Agencies, USAID and some European governments.
At the moment, the permanent research staff of ICEIM-MANU includes four academicians, one senior scientist, two junior scientists and two research assistants, as well as three postgraduate students – volunteers. Together with over twenty collaborators from other scientific institutions in Macedonia, they are particularly committed to international cooperation, partnerships and networking. This resulted in internationally funded research projects - currently ten: three EU FP6 projects, one EU COST Action (proposed and chaired by Macedonia), two projects financed by EU member governments, as well as two projects financed by UNDP/GEF, one by IAEA and one by foreign donation.
