“Coupling research and innovation for the needs of the society”
European Academy pays a particular attention to R&I and R&D. Our main purpose is to create on-the-field innovations and new patterns in order to improve learning and information management and foster the transfer of know-how activities. The majority of the research projects is carried out along with leading universities throughout Europe, international research institutes and technology companies. Our projects – either funded by Ministries or co-funded by the European Union – involve the creation and the subsequent implementation of special activities in partnership with international leading companies in many sectors.
EA is involved in Romania on several funded activities: from research (knowledge driven), moving than through innovation (technology driven), up to its industrial and commercial applications (society driven). In general, EA actions in the area of Research and Innovation are closely in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy and with the opportunities connected with Horizon 2020: the EU’s new programme for research and innovation which is part of the strategy aimed to create growth and new jobs places in Europe.
By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this putting emphasis on excellence science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The ambitious goal is to ensure a world-class science for Europe, thus removing barriers to innovation and making it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation to society.
Seen as a means to guide economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They all hold as a key principle research as an investment in our future and so H2020 is one of the policies implemented in order to put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.
For this reason, research at European Academy is carried out holding the will to meet the needs of society as guideline. The studies made from our offices and labs are available to businesses, PA, universities, excellence centres, schools and national & regional agencies. The tools we develop become concrete actions for those managing resources and territory.
