The main functions of the INTE are scientific research and technology transfer, organised in four research groups which include fields of specialisation related to ionising radiation,catalysis and development of materials for energy and environmental applications, neutronphysics and particle accelerators.

In addition to research laboratories, the Institute has laboratories certified by the ENAC which provide detector calibration services and radiochemical analysis of environmental probes.
