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. For the first time, we propose to the academic community an annex of the conference along with the Sibiu Extension in order to better disseminate the information.
The 5th Edition
2017 represented the 5th edition of the conference and it was held at Iași, on the 25th-27th October. More than 250 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.
Sibiu Extension targets as audience: students, PhDs, teachers, librarians and researchers. We design new interesting sessions and dynamic workshops just to encourage the academic community to share opinions and experiences. We consider that the key-words for Romanian International Conference for Research and Education must become actions: #networking & #enformation.
Why is our event relevant
The event has international guests, like Clarivate Analytic, Elsevier and CEEOL (Central and Eastern Online Library). 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 the situation of the Romanian Research System and the impact of the digital transformation on different sectors.
The second focus of our event regards the education area. We all know that the Romanian Educational System needs a change. During the plenary sessions, the speakers will discuss about how education is the key to social and economic growth, from different points of view. We invite you to join our guests and to contribute to the Q&A sessions, so that we can reveal also the solutions, not only the existence of problems.
How should the education system evolve to meet to current needs of the student?
What are the most engaging learning models for millenials?
How can we overcome the limitations of the Romanian Research and Education System?
