About us

The National Institute for Research and Development for Optoelectronics - INOE 2000 was established in 1996. The Institute develops fundamental and applied research in the field of optoelectronics, analytical chemistry and mechanical engineering, aligning itself with the vital scientific directions of the European Research Area.

The Institute comprises six research departments, two certified test laboratories and two legal branches, the Research Institute for Analytical Instruments (ICIA) and the Research Institute for Hydraulics and Pneumatics (IHP), each carrying out theoretical and applied research activities.


The activity of the institute is centered on the following major research directions:

  • Optoelectronic engineering and analytical tools
  • Optoelectronic materials and advanced surface processing
  • Optoelectronic techniques for art restoration
  • Optoelectronics techniques for environmental assessment and remediation
  • Renewable energy
  • High pressure technologies

The institute is located on the Magurele Platform, 8 km south of Bucharest, and its branches are located in Bucharest (IHP) and Cluj-Napoca (ICIA).

An important effort is permanently dedicated to maintaining cohesion in the research activity by creating and sustaining a regional information network.

Within the institute a number of 160 specialists are engaged in research, development and innovation (RDI) activities.



The institute mission is to develop optoelectronic materials, devices and techniques and to support their use in industrial applications




The institute is organized into departments and laboratories and includes two branches located in Bucharest (IHP) and Cluj (ICIA).




INOE is part of several scientific communication networks, actively participating in multiple European research projects and affiliated with prestigious bodies.
