Romanian Research Infrastructures: Classification, Relevant Key Aspects and Concrete Managerial Needs
Research and innovation infrastructures are facilities that provide resources and services to the research community in order to conduct research and stimulate innovation. Science, technology, and innovation are important components of the national development plan and have been recognized as a driver of socio-economic progress in Romania. Finding novel and innovative solutions to socio-economic challenges that we are currently facing requires a better understanding of the concrete managerial needs within the Romanian research infrastructures. The aim of this study was to identify the infrastructures in Romania that carry out research and innovation activities in priority domains and analyze the managerial needs perceived by people belonging to different research infrastructure in an effort to identify the key aspects capable of bringing value to these organizations.
