Ramona Lile: We wish to support the Romanian community from Hungary

Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad in collaboration with ATRU (The Documentation and Information Center for the National Self-government of Romanians across Hungary) established a new accord meant to help preserve Romanian customs and habits in Romanian communities across Hungary.

“It`s a framework agreement meant to allow further joint projects aimed at supporting Romanian communities from within Hungary. It is very important that our national traits be maintained in these communities, to be passed on to the coming generations. I am convinced that through these civic and cultural activities that are to be conducted in cooperation with our partner institution, we help preserve the Romanian spirit across the border” pointed out Rector Ramona Lile.

“We wish for our joint actions to support Romanian culture and to create ties between the Romanian community from Hungary and the domestic one. Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad is able to support these undertakings and possesses the required expertise to develop relations between the two communities. Aurel Vlaicu state university has always been a trustworthy partner for the Romanian community form Hungary” added Mariana Negreu Vetro director of ATRU`s Documentation and Information Center.

2013 Call for ESF Exploratory Workshops

2013 Call for Exploratory Workshop proposals

Deadline:  18 April 2013, 16.00 CET

Each year, ESF supports between 25-40 Exploratory Workshops across all scientific domains.

These small, interactive output oriented meetings are aimed at opening up new directions in research to explore emerging research fields with potential impact on new developments in science. The workshops, which usually last 1-3 days, have a wide participation from across Europe and involve mature scientists as well as young, independent researchers and scholars with leadership potential. The relatively small scale (in terms of people involved) provides an ideal platform for focus on the topic and for all participants to contribute to discussions and plan follow-up collaborative work.

21st World Futures Studies Federation World Conference

President's Welcome Speech to the 2013 Conference

Dr. Jennifer GIDLEY

"In 1972 a group of social and cultural innovators met in Bucharest, Romania, and decided to found the World Futures Studies Federation the following year in Paris.

WFSF is fortunate to inherit such a great legacy of intellectual strength, vision and courage, laid into its very foundations.
I feel honoured to lead such a well-founded organization.

But when I reflect on the last 40 years, and the next 40,
I wonder…

What will we create in 2013 that will still be going strong in another 40 years?

What innovations can we invent that will lead to a better world in 2053?

There is no doubt that technological innovation is increasing exponentially. But, are we, as human beings, keeping up?

Are we innovating socially, culturally in ways that will create the futures we want—futures that benefit everyone, not just a few.

Our 21st WFSF World Conference in Bucharest in June 2013 will focus on the importance of innovation, across a wide spectrum of social and cultural domains.

I look forward to welcoming you in Bucharest." more
