In this context, having regard to the National Strategy for Research, Development and Innovation 2014-2020 together with the instruments for its implementation, the University defined the fields of intelligent specialization for the fields of study within UPIT.
The research themes included in the research / development / innovation projects / plans of the teaching departments fall within the scientific areas of the study fields coordinated by them. The study programs of all cycles in UPIT contain specific activities for the preparation of students for scientific research.
