I Programmes Implementation Methods Article 7
Programmes established by this Act shall be funded through project funding, which includes
funding the scientific research work of researchers and funding for direct financial costs of research, as well as providing and maintaining the scientific research equipment and facilities for scientific research work, in accordance with the Law.
The Project is a unique scientific research enterprise, i.e. a set of clearly and carefully defined
activities designed to assist the implementation of defined tasks within a certain timeline, with the utilisation of knowledge, human labour, funds, equipment, technology and other available resources. Article 8
The BR Programme shall be implemented through scientific research activities within projects in
1) Biology 2) Chemistry 3) Geo-Sciences and Astronomy 4) History, Archaeology and Ethnology 5) Language and Theory of Literature 6) Mathematics, Computer Science and Mechanics 7) Medicine 8) Physics 9) Social Sciences
The TD Programme shall be implemented through scientific research activities within projects in
1) Biotechnology and Agriculture; 2) Electronics, Telecommunications and IT; 3) Energy, Mining Industry and Energy Efficiency; 4) Engineering and Industry Software; 5) Materials and Chemical Technologies; 6) Regulation, Protection and Utilisation of Water, Soil and Air; 7) Transport, Urban Planning and Civil Engineering.
The IIR Programme shall be implemented in accordance with national strategic priorities of the
Republic of Serbia, through scientific research activities within the projects in the field of science and technology:
Cellular and molecular bases of physiological processes and pathogenetic mechanisms initiated by the action of endogenous and exogenous aetiological factors;
Preclinical and clinical research providing original and innovative contributions to predictive, preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches;
Pharmacogenomics, regulatory mechanisms and pharmacological modulations.
Energy efficiency of production, distribution and utilisation of energy, with a special emphasis on the increase and sustainability of energy efficiency of buildings;
New technologies to utilise renewable sources of energy and clean, zero-emission technologies, primarily in the domain of mini hydropower plants, cogeneration, biomass;
Air-pollution-free heat and power plants and energy plants.
3) Environmental protection and climate change
Climate change impact on the natural resources and environmental protection – monitoring impacts, adaptation and mitigation;
Integrated management in the field of environmental protection (quality of water, air and soil), protection of biodiversity and scientific monitoring of the ecosystem;
New environmental protection technologies.
4) Information and Communication Technologies

Projects from the IIR Programme unify targeted basic, applied and developmental research with
the aim of increasing usability of research results and optimal utilisation of research and material resources. Basic research from the IIR Programme is intended to assist in resolving crucial scientific, government and social issues. Applied and developmental research from the IIR Programme should be guided by market demand and public policy requirements. This integration needs to be stimulated in accordance with national research and development priorities in the form of strategic integral programme and development. These projects are to be implemented by researchers from a large number of scientific research organisations and experts from private business and public enterprises.
It is recommended to involve researchers from the fields of social sciences and humanities on
IIR Programme projects in the field of natural sciences and mathematics, as well as medicine and technical sciences.
IIR Programme projects in the fields of social sciences and humanities cover issues of strategic
interest for the preservation of cultural heritage, affirmation of national identity and improvements in passing government decisions. They rest on a combination of theoretical and field research.
