Extra Conferinta 2019

The annual event “Acces la literatura științifică” organized by Enformation
offers you the possibility to participate to
Romanian International Conference for Research and Education – Constanța Extension.
Why? We believe in bringing the information closer to all members of the academic community.

Romanian International Conference for Research and Education means sharing experiences and knowledge, as well as debates with the audience participation. Also, the event represents the opportunity to create new collaborations and projects, which can provide alternatives and real solutions to the limitations of the Romanian Research and Education System. Last but not least, the conference offers a networking environment for the academic community’s members, whether they are from the research sector, whether they are from the education sector.

Stay tuned for more #enformation!

Organized by Enformation

“Acces la literatura științifică” is an annual event organised by Enformation aiming at bringing together people from the Research and Education sectors to create new collaboration opportunities within the academic field. Last year, for the first time, we created Sibiu-Extension to make sure that the information shared during Romanian International Conference for Research and Education is spread to all members of the academic community. Now, we continue this project along with the Constanța Extension!

The 6th Edition

2018 represented the 6th edition of the conference and it was held at Cluj, on the 23th-25th October. More than 200 participants attended our event, among them being: representatives of 21 International Publishing Houses, professors and members of the Academia, researchers, librarians, students, but also, high-school students. During these three days there took place plenary sessions and workshops, created to present research trends, new learning and teaching methods, as well innovative solutions for both areas.

Constanța Extension

Constanța Extension targets as audience: students, PhDs, teachers, librarians and researchers. Each time we aim to design new interesting sessions and dynamic workshops to encourage the academic community to share opinions and experiences. We consider that the key-actions to development are #networking & #enformation.


Why is our event relevant

International Publishers

The event has international guests, like ProQuest and Elsevier. With our well known partners` help, experts in academic publishing, we propose to our audience practical workshops. During these discussions you have the chance to find out firsthand about the latest tools designed to ease the research process, the newest functionalities available for librarians and the tips & trick of their online platforms.


One of the main themes of the Romanian International Conference for Research and Education, as the name suggests, is the research activity. If you’re passionate about the subject or research is already an important part of your professional life, the plenary sessions are designed for you! Our guests will talk about space exploration, robotics, virtual reality and the changes that already are present in the research climate.


The second focus of our event regards the education area. The plenary sessions will present topics like alternative methods in teaching and learning or the importance of resourcefulness. During the plenary sessions, you will have access to different perspectives on education, based on two dichotomies: public vs. private, national vs. international. You will feel inspired by our guests who are determined to find solutions where others see only problems.
