To turn its strength to the best account, the institute concentrates resources on two directions: (a) steadily develop a sound in-house capability to get and stay in the forefront of nuclear science and
technology; and (ii) substantively participate in the European collaborations centered on Large Scale Facilities such as GSI-Darmstadt (Germany), GANIL-Caen (France), CERN (Geneva), JINR
(Dubna). This is a strategy meant to harmonize limited domestic resources with the tall orders of the contemporary, top-level nuclear physics research, and the imperative need for Continental co-
operation and integration.

Impact of ELI-NP
ELI-NP will produce an impact on each and every point where Romania suffers from a
lack of competitiveness
World-class research infrastructure
Collaboration with the local for-profit sector (contractual research)
Knowledge and technology transfer as a primary objective
Publications in high ranked ISI-indexed journals
Significant expectations in terms of International Patents
+200 positions of researchers
ELI-NP Academic Forum
Long-term partnerships with academic institutions
Implement initiatives enabling the ELI-NP project to secure the fulfilment of its needs in
terms of PhD students, junior researchers, engineers, and technicians (creation of training
programs, specific MSc and PhD programs, etc.).
Partnerships will also facilitate the dissemination of the results of the ELI-NP Project to the
local academic community.
A forum where academic institutions are encouraged to define, with the beneficiary and its
two Partners, the initiatives of various kinds that could support the ELI-NP Project in the
achievement of its objectives in terms of scientific excellence.
initiatives that would be created within the framework of the Academic Consortium shall
lead to the signature of bilateral agreements between the beneficiary and the institution(s)
involved in each particular initiative.
1st Meeting: April 24th, 2012. Magurele.
ELI-NP Industrial Forum
Body promoting relationships with local and foreign companies.
Objective of the ELI-NP team: focus on the development with the business and industrial
sector (promotion of contractual research, technology transfer and commercialisation of
Activities will focus on the local context, but some major companies from other countries will
also be interested
Associating local companies with foreign companies is consequently an important objective
of the ELI-NP Industrial Forum.
Members are encouraged to set up initiatives consistent with the objectives of the ELI-NP
project in terms of socio-economic impact (local development, creation of jobs, etc.).
Further initiatives, such as consulting services provided by ELI-NP experts to companies, can
naturally be negotiated within the framework of the ELI-NP Industrial Forum.
