Why is “Basic Research” conducted?
Basic research is carried out for the sake of
increasing knowledge, such as how and why a
specific reaction occurs and what the properties of
a substance are.
Applied research is generally conducted to solve

damage the atmosphere.
Technological development typically involves the
production and use of products that improve the
quality of our life.
