fundamental research in the field of energy or power
Explanation:
Not quite sure as to how you should translate 'energy' in this context, but 'fundamental' would certainly be an option for 'funderend'. Don't have much time now, but I'll try to get back to you with some references a.s.a.p.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks! This was my initial hunch as well, but I wasn't sure. And to answer your question: it's about energy research at a research centre.

agree  Ron Willems: fundamental it is (in Dutch usually "fundamenteel" is used rather than "funderend", but judging by their definition this is what they mean here)
