OBJECTIVES

General objectives:

 -  enhancement of safe and security of food;
 -  biotechnology development with impact on life quality and economic activity;
 -  developing of new materials, products and processes with high added-value;
 -  optimization of methods for disease prevention;
 -  development of new technologies for conservation, reconstruction and consolidation of the biologic and ecologic diversity.

Project specific objectives are:

 -  obtaining of enzyme biosensors for monitoring nitrates and nitrites from waters;
 -  covalent immobilization of enzymes and yielding enzyme polymer nanocomposites;
 -  hydrophilic polymers coating on the sensor electrode;
 -  proving the possibility to use the new biosensors in monitoring the nitrate and nitrite in water for human consumption;
 -  development of some technologies for the efficient using of the new devices;
 -  increasing the life quality, by preventing the diseases of the population.

The following measurable effects are expected:

Economic Effects:

 -  enlargement the range of advanced composites and increase production of electronic and electro technical industry, leading to GDP increase;
 -  increasing technical and qualitative level of advanced materials produced in our country, which will improve competitiveness and market position of interested SME beneficiary;
 -  income increase in the field of advanced material production, by manufacturing new, high value-added products, in accord with the demands of new application areas;
 -  efficient use of material resources in Romanian enterprises;
 -  development of partnership between enterprises and R&D units;
 -  providing of sustainable economic development at regional and sectorial level.

Scientific Effects:

 -  stimulating research network in the field of food, new materials and environment, by means of cooperation between research institutions and universities;
 -  increase integration capability within European programs and partnership, connected to thematic area 2: Food, agriculture and biotechnologies, in thematic area 6; Environment (including climate change), and 4: Nanoscience and nanotechnologies, and new production processes, targeting industry development based on knowledge;
 -  continuously development of research in the field of synthesis, processing and modification of polymers, biochemistry, electrochemistry, ecology and complex characterization of materials;
 -  increase enterprises power to implement research results through technology transfer and stimulation of innovation;
 -  dissemination on large scale of scientific results by participation at international conferences and workshops, publishing scientific papers (in ISI journals), CD-ROM, web-page, participation in fairs and exhibitions, leading to enhanced visibility of Romanian science.

Ecological Effects:

 -  monitoring the nitrate and nitrite pollution of the waters;
 -  developing new materials, using ecological procedures, without emissions of air pollutants or industrial water charged with chemical products, environmentally aggressive;
 -  protection of the personnel and environment both to producer and to end user.

Social Effects:

 -  protection of the population health;
 -  increase of life quality;
 -  creating new jobs;
 -  regional development, especially of underdeveloped areas;
 -  drawing young students and graduates to take part in research team. In the project are working 22 young specialists, among which 4 are still students.
