The Romanian Alliance of Technical Universities (ARUT) and the Austrian Alliance of Technical Universities (TU Austria) have established the inter-university collaboration.


The Romanian Alliance of Technical Universities (ARUT), comprising the most important five technical universities in Romania, and Alliance of Austrian Technical Universities (TU Austria), formed by the association of Vienna Technical Universities (TU Vienna), Graz (TU Graz) and Leoben (U. Montana Leoben), have set up an inter-university collaboration.

This type of cooperation represents a premiere for the Romanian universities and constitute premises for the joint development of innovative projects for the Central European technical space.

The negotiations took place during the 36th edition of the Conference of Rectors and Presidents of European Universities of Technology, held from 15 to 16 September 2017 at TU Graz, where have participated more than 30 representatives of the participating universities in Europe. From Romania participated:

- Rector of the Politehnica University Timişoara, Viorel-Aurel Şerban,

- Vice-Rector of the Politehnica University Timisoara, Daniel Dan,

- Rector of the Politehnica University of Bucharest, Mihnea Costoiu and

- The rector of the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest, Radu Văcăreanu.

It was agreed that a first meeting between the representatives of the member universities of the two alliances was to take place in Timişoara, UPT, during May 2018.

"We look forward to this event, which, we have the conviction, will lay the foundations for a lasting cooperation. The problems faced by universities in the field of education and research will be addressed. Forming a qualified and specialized workforce in accordance with the needs of the labor market - a prerequisite for the development of a competitive economy - is one of the themes to be analyzed at this meeting ", Prof. Eng. Viorel-Aurel ȘERBAN Ph.D., UPT Rector and President of the Romanian Technical University (ARUT).
