During the Autumn Scientific Conference, the President of the Academy of Romanian Scientists, Prof. Dr. Ing.

I can say that this new event bearing the AOSR logo, a logo that has become a true brand of academic excellence and performance, represents an important success, being a new valuable contribution of the Academy of Romanian Scientists to the progress of knowledge. Development through knowledge is our strategic objective at institutional level and is underpinned by elite events such as the Constanta Conference, our research programmes and projects, the encouragement and support of young researchers, and the funding of their best projects. Crucially, in defining and situating the institution, results must speak for themselves. Given the value  our members and their work in the fields of science and research, recognized by the number of citations and by their performance at international level, I consider, without being subjective, that the Academy of Romanian Scientists has a significant contribution, of high performance, under the sign of academic excellence and competitiveness, to the process of development of Romanian education, research and science and, in general, to the development of Romania through knowledge.”
