Paper Abstract

Society's demand for the development of new types of information gathering systems is very strong, and corresponds in part to intelligent sensors, containing systems for the numerical treatment of information using sensitive elements composed of intelligent materials. The relational difficulties that exist between fundamental research and different socio-economic environments on the one hand, and those existing between scientific disciplines on the other hand significantly limit creativity in this extremely promising area. The implementation of a science of structural relations favoring interdisciplinarity is the only possible guarantee of the establish of dynamic research in this field, which is at the interface between fundamental science, engineering sciences and technology.
