The Cluj Innovation Project was recently introduced to José Manuel Durão Barroso, President of the European Commission, by Traian Basescu, Romanian President, for building awareness at the EU level about the project.

We also had an exchange on the Romanian proposal to further develop the technology cluster in Cluj – the ‘Cluj Innovation City’. I could see the enthusiasm that President Băsescu puts in that project. The Commission welcomes this kind of initiative, which fosters the transfer of knowledge and innovation and also the cooperation between research and business. I told President Băsescu that the European Union funding may be made available, provided, of course, that the proposed investments are in line with the objectives and priorities identified in the future operational programmes.
