Romanian Ingenuity: Pioneering Innovations
During the time when early inventors made their inventions known in the world, Romania used to be a place where innovations flourished. Medicine, physics, and aeronautics are only a few fields where Romanians brought their contributions and helped change the world for the better.
In the last period of time, the number of innovations in our country dropped significantly. We are on a mission to transform Romania into a place for technological innovation where everyone receives the essential support to make their dreams come true. We want to develop together a place where inventors and innovators are encouraged to put their ideas into practice and transform them into commercial products.
