TY - JOUR TI - Interdependence of fundamental and applied research in material science AU - Kosanović D. AU - Maričić A. AU - Mitrović N. AU - Ristić M.M. JN - Science of Sintering PY - 2011 VL - 43 IS - 2 SP - 119 EP - 126 PT- Article AB- Development of materials with desirable properties essentially depends on realization of interdependence: natural science ⇔ technical sciences. Taking this into account, in order to develop of new advanced materials it is essential to determine principles that characterize this interdependency. Therefore, in this article the principles of fundamental research and the importance of obtained results are considered and implemented in the field of technical realizations.
