The Romanian Academy handed its awards for 2007 in a festive session at its central headquarters in Bucharest. 80 people received the highest academic honour for their scientific and artistic activity during 2007. Among the honorees there were authors Nichita Danilov and Ion Hadarca – both recipients of the Mihai Eminescu award for their literary works, Horia Ursu – recipient of the Ion Creanga award and historian Sorin Lavric – recipient of the Titu Maiorescu awards.

Another laureate was director Elisabeta Bostan, recipient of the Aristitza Romanescu for her directorial activity.

Former EU negotiator Vasile Puscas received the Mihail Kogalniceanu award from the Archeological and Scientific Group of the Academy. Puscas received the award for his work “Romania heading towards EU, Adheration Principles (2000-2004).”

Each Academy section handed awards in the categories: science, maths, physics, chemistry, technical sciences, medical, philosophy and law sciences. Each of the accolades was accompanied by a 2.000 RON check.

Also on Thursday, two of the iconic Romanian names, playwright Eugene Ionesco and philosopher Emil Cioran were elected post-mortem members of the Academy. Both Cioran and Ionesco are in the elegant company of other well-known Romanian intellectuals, such as philosopher Constantin Noica, writer and philosopher Mircea Eliade and poet Nichita Stanescu.
