EUR 1 bn in EU funds through research projects

Minister-delegate for Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technological Development, Mihnea Costoiu said on Wednesday at the opening of the Polifest Festival that Romania has accessed 1 billion euros in EU funds through research projects, with about EUR 640-650 million being accessed through projects in a year and two months, according to Agerpres.
‘This year we managed to improve on our handicap as regards the failure to access European funds. We reached a rate of about one billion euros accessed through research projects, with 640-650 million euros in a year and two months. We managed to unblock the human resources operational program. We brought funding where needed. We included on this year’s agenda also the Technics Museum, quite forgotten, and we hope to make a surprise to the youth this year by implementing an EU-funded project developing the taste for exact sciences, engineering, research in schools and high schools,’ Costoiu said. Referring to Polifest, Costoiu said the festival brings together famous companies, research institutes, pupils, students, employers, culture institutions, as well as trade unions.
‘It’s a special week for the Romanian education, a week when the universities open their doors. The largest educational event in Bucharest is Polifest because it’s a concept that gathers everyone at the same time and in the same place. We organize days devoted to the various countries the companies come from,’ the minister also said.
