The purpose of the Institute was the developing of an accurate geological infrastructure for the country. Thus, the geological mapping fulfilled first the main role of the GIR, to which also agrogeology, geophysics, geochemistry, engineering geology etc., were successively added.

The range of tasks currently performed by the GIR has been enlarged, including remote sensing, environment monitoring, geothermics etc. The GIR served as the nerve center for geological research in Romania both by disseminating geological information and by rational development of different geological fields. Due to historical backgrounds, the GIR had the most complete analytical equipments as compared always existed.
