The Romanian Alliance of Technical Universities (ARUT) aims to represent both a collaborative platform for the most prestigious technical universities in the country, as well as a common, strong voice, permanently involved in optimizing policies in education and research.
Large companies, as well as small and medium ones, all need well-prepared human resources to be able to perform in a competitive market – in this context, ARUT meets the recommendations of the European Council on the National Reform Program of Romania for 2015 by increasing the quality and the relevance of higher education in the technical field for the labour market and by strengthening applied research projects targeting the consumer market.
ARUT will also represent a framework for extensive projects devoted to the priority areas of the National Tertiary Education Strategy 2015-2020. Both the creation of funding sources for educational and research projects and the writing of projects to be funded from the European Social Fund will be central to the work of the Alliance, which will try to define a clearer and more transparent financial circuit for all relevant technical institutions in Romania.
Last but not least, ARUT – in its capacity as the largest technical consortium in the country - will actively participate in the smart development of education and research policies.
