|The main goal of the Project is defined by a common vision The Establishment of a Centre of Excellence conducting research in the area of Quality of Life and Human Health. The basic building blocks of the centre are Research Groups that are concentrated in seven Research Programmes. The targeted cooperation within and among the Research Programmes is assured by Common Research Objectives. They reflect synergies throughout the Project and their fulfilment is an important component of the Common Evaluation of Scientific Excellence. These Common Research Objectives are: to understand the mechanisms of the genesis and spread of important diseases, methods of their prevention, early diagnostics and therapy; to utilize plant systems as renewable sources of materials and biologically active compounds; to develop advanced materials and functional nanostructures for medicine, energy and information and communication technologies; to utilize information and communication technologies for biomedicine.
