Applied science is the application of existing scientific knowledge to practical applications, like technology or inventions.
Scientists and engineers usually prefer to define technology as applied science, rather than as the things that people make and use.

Science

scientificsciencesscientific knowledge
Applied research is the practical application of science.
Disciplines that use existing scientific knowledge for practical purposes, such as engineering and medicine, are described as applied sciences.

Research and development

R&Dresearch & developmentdevelopment
The OECD's Frascati Manual describes applied research as one of the three forms of research, along with basic research & experimental development.
R&D activities differ from institution to institution, with two primary models of an R&D department either staffed by engineers and tasked with directly developing new products, or staffed with industrial scientists and tasked with applied research in scientific or technological fields, which may facilitate future product development.

Frascati Manual

The OECD's Frascati Manual describes applied research as one of the three forms of research, along with basic research & experimental development.
The manual gives definitions for: basic research, applied research, Research and development; research personnel: researchers, technicians, auxiliary personnel.

Medical microbiology

clinical microbiologymicrobiologicalmicrobiologist
Medical sciences, for instance medical microbiology and clinical virology, are applied sciences that apply biology toward medical knowledge and inventions, but not necessarily medical technology, whose development is more specifically biomedicine or biomedical engineering.
Medical microbiology, the large subset of microbiology that is applied to medicine, is a branch of medical science concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases.

Medicine

medicalmedical sciencemedicinal
Medical sciences, for instance medical microbiology and clinical virology, are applied sciences that apply biology toward medical knowledge and inventions, but not necessarily medical technology, whose development is more specifically biomedicine or biomedical engineering. This includes a broad range of applied science related fields from engineering, business, medicine to early childhood education.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science). While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.

Fluid mechanics

fluidfluid dynamicistfluid physics
Engineering fields include thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, kinematics, electromagnetism, materials science, earth sciences, engineering physics.
Fluid dynamics offers a systematic structure—which underlies these practical disciplines—that embraces empirical and semi-empirical laws derived from flow measurement and used to solve practical problems.

Bachelor of Applied Science

B.A.Sc.BAScB.A.S.
In Canada, the Netherlands and other places the Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) is equivalent to the Bachelor of Engineering, and is classified as a professional degree.
The BAS usually requires a student to take a majority of their courses in the applied sciences, specializing in a specific area such as the following:

Basic research

basicbasic sciencefundamental research
The OECD's Frascati Manual describes applied research as one of the three forms of research, along with basic research & experimental development. Within natural science, disciplines that are basic science, also called pure science, develop basic information to predict and perhaps explain and understand phenomena in the natural world.
Applied research, in turn, uses scientific theories to develop technology or techniques to intervene and alter natural or other phenomena.

Hard and soft science

Hard and soft science
A closely related idea (originating in the nineteenth century with Auguste Comte) is that scientific disciplines can be arranged into a hierarchy of hard to soft on the basis of factors such as rigor, "development", and whether they are basic or applied.
