  LIFE
  SCIENCES
  ICT   SMART
  MANUFACTURING

Life Sciences is one of the two major branches of natural science. Some Life Sciences focus on a specific type of organism (zoology, botany) or on aspects common to all or many life forms (anatomy and genetics). Some focus on the micro scale (e.g. molecular biology, biochemistry), others on larger scales (e.g. cytology, immunology, ecology). Another major branch is neuroscience. Life Sciences have applications in health, agriculture, medicine, and the pharmaceutical and food science industries.

ICT refers to the field of telematics, i.e. computer, audiovisual, multimedia, Internet and telecommunications technologies that enable users to communicate, access information sources, store, manipulate, produce and transmit information in different forms: text, music, sound, image, video and interactive graphical user interface (GUI).

Smart manufacturing is a broad category of manufacturing with the goal of optimizing concept generation, production, and product transaction. Smart manufacturing, also known as Industry 4.0, is a subset that employs computer control and high levels of adaptability. Smart manufacturing aims to take advantage of advanced information and manufacturing technologies to enable flexibility in physical processes.
