AOSR expresses its sadness and regret at the departure of Professor Ion Cucui


The Academy of Romanian Scientists is deeply saddened by the passing of Professor Ion Cucui.

Professor Ion Cucui was a nationally and internationally recognized personality of Romanian university education and scientific research who dedicated his life to academic education and science, building and institutional development. PhD in economics, he was professor at Valahia University in Targoviste, PhD supervisor and rector of the same higher education institution. He was the teacher, appreciated and loved, of many classes of students, whom he guided with dedication and competence in the fields of accounting and management. He guided his young doctoral students from the position of academic authority, inspiring them, cultivating their attachment to value, quality and excellence, supporting them in the process of becoming and affirming themselves scientifically. As rector, during his two mandates, he made a fundamental contribution to the development of Wallachia University, both in terms of infrastructure and quality of education and research. During Professor Cucui’s tenure as Rector, the University’s new building, Aula, Research Institute and campus – one of the most modern in the country – were built. It has encouraged and promoted value and has built a valuable and successful team of teachers and researchers. Valahia University owes former rector Ion Cucui an era of development and flourishing, fundamental for its present and future.

Professor Ion Cucui was a full member of the Academy of Romanian Scientists (Economic, Legal and Sociological Sciences Section) and president of the Targoviste Branch of the AOSR, which he practically built around his personality. He was an outstanding member, a true pillar of our Academy, deeply dedicated and involved with all his dedication, energy and competence in its institutional development.

The departure of Professor Ion Cucui is an irreparable loss for the Academy of Romanian Scientists and for Romanian higher education. The academic community of the AOSR expresses, together with the sadness and deep regret at the death of Professor Ion Cucui, its deep gratitude for all that he did and meant for the Academy, for education and research.

With sorrow, the Academy of Romanian Scientists sends its condolences to the bereaved family!
