On Friday, November 11, the government approved a memorandum to create a network of Romanian offices of science and technology in several countries around the world, similar to those already operating in Brussels. According to Research Minister Sebastian Bordoga, such an office should also see the light of day in the United States, in Silicon Valley.
The minister explained that the authorities are trying to determine the legal form in which Romania can open such an office on American soil, and then a government decision will be taken in this sense, Edupedu.ro reported.
“Romania has a strategic partnership with the United States on several dimensions, among which are specifically the promotion of these university exchanges, the field of entrepreneurship, innovation and research,” Minister Borduga said after the November 11 government meeting.
“We have a precedent in Brussels. Since 2006, under the supervision of the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Digitization, there is a Romanian office for science and technology in Brussels that connects us with the European environment,” he added.
Sebastian Bordoga also said that given what other European countries such as Denmark, France and Germany have done, but also smaller countries such as Slovenia, Romanian authorities also felt “the need for a representative office in Silicon Valley, like a first step”. Later, Romanian officials would also assess the possibility of a similar approach in Israel, Japan, and South Korea.
