Czech Republic has a long-standing tradition in the area of precise machinery, electronics, optics, special devices and corresponding advanced technologies. To make sure this tradition is upheld, extended into other areas and further developed at a cutting-edge level, it is necessary to seek new physical, chemical, imaging and diagnostics principles, new procedures and modern technologies, and to develop new methods for the study of microstructures and nanostructures of both living and non-living matter. Original theoretical results in natural and technical sciences are acquired during the evaluation of these principles, as are unique methodical procedures and device elements.

Progress nowadays is unthinkable without interdisciplinary approach, without intensive communication and cooperation among top specialists from a variety of disciplines. Often the time-tested procedures from one area cause a surprising breakthrough and further development in another area, if they are applied in a non-conventional way. The ultimate goal is their use in basic and applied research, predominantly in the areas of biomedicine and physics of materials, in industry and for the education of the next scientific generation.
