The Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Fundamental Technological Research (IPPT PAN) conducts high-quality research in a variety of areas that are at the center of interest in science and technology across the world.

The institute’s main research areas are in:
- theoretical and applied mechanics,
- theory of coupled mechanical and physical fields,
- theoretical and experimental mechanics of materials and structures,
- computational methods in mechanics,
- acoustoelectronics and ultrasonic medical diagnostics,
- biomechanics.

The institute also conducts extensive research in several branches of fundamental science and technology, such as physics and thermodynamics of continua; plasma physics; stochastic dynamics; fluid mechanics; laser beam interaction with metal surfaces, nanophotonics, applied mathematics, applied informatics, and bio-informatics.

The institute has extensive experience in international collaboration, particularly in the area of international Research and Technology Development projects (RTD). To concentrate its research potential in the most promising and innovative areas, the institute is a partner in several highly specialized research consortiums. The institute also focuses on team-ups with industry.

As a partner of the CePT consortium, the institute contributes its expertise and experience in research on areas where technical, biological and medical sciences meet. The institute’s modern laboratories will be used for joint experiments as part of the project. In another contribution to the CePT project, a Joint Laboratory of Multifunctional Materials has been launched at the institute, in a team-up with the Warsaw University of Technology’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

The CePT project has enabled the institute to establish collaboration with other members of the consortium and work together on the development of joint research projects.

As a result of its involvement in the CePT project, the institute has:
- strengthened its experimental facilities;
- expanded its research portfolio to include a number
of new, attractive areas;
- been able to use the expertise and infrastructure of other CePT consortium partners while conducting research;
- been able to promote itself on a large scale.

A number of research projects are currently under way or being prepared for launch by the institute with the use of CePT resources. These projects focus on the following:

- use of electrospun nanofibers as active dressing material in preventing post-traumatic changes
in brain tissue;
- intercellular and intracellular signaling in innate immune responses;
- development of biodegradable polymer scaffolds for cell cultures used in orthopedic surgery.
