Nowadays science increasingly tends to overcome the limits imposed by the division into physics, chemistry, biology and other traditional disciplines, by creating teams pursuing a multidisciplinary line of research. Such a concept brings together experts from many areas, enabling them to get a multi-faceted insight into a problem and seek solutions through joint work.Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences is a place where such an approach to research is enabled by its internal organization and established practices. The research at the Institute covers the following areas: physics, chemistry, biology, power engineering and technology, radiation and environmental protection, accelerator science, and materials science.All of these areas fall within the group of natural and technical sciences. Owing to a multidisciplinary approach, the Institute is capable of responding to the major strategic lines of research defined at the national level: advanced materials and nanoscience, energy engineering and technology, biomedicine and environmental protection.The total number of employees currently fluctuates around 750, out of which over 250 hold a PhD degree.
