In May 2017, the Chair published the first progress report for the period 06, 2012 – 06, 2016 (extended to 05, 2017).
The Chair has been involved in co-designing the Master`s Programme in Managerial Communication and Human Resources offered by SNSPA. During the last 5 years, we have been teaching two key courses – Intellectual Capital and Writing and Implementing Research Projects – aimed at developing both strategic thinking and systems thinking combined with operational management skills.
In regard to short term training, the Chair together with the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding have organized a series of trainings aimed at developing strategic planning and scenario building skills, relevant for the policy formulation process. Held in March 2015 by the invited professor Peter Bishop (University of Houston), the sessions were attended by representatives of the Romanian R&I system, public administration, and civil society.
Since 2012, the Chair has been involved in configuring and organizing various events in the areas of its core expertise and interest:
- 4 international conferences in the broad field of higher education and R&I policy, including futures studies,
- 7 workshops with international participation on various topics (education, innovation, foresight, and smart urban development),
- 7 Mutual Learning Workshops as platforms for discussing key issues and sharing best international practices in higher education policy and intellectual capital management.
A notable activity undertaken by the Chairholder consisted in the coordination of seven high-level working groups created with the aim to prepare the implementation of Laser Valley – Land of Lights – a regional innovation ecosystem around the pan-European Research Infrastructure ELI-NP.
The Chairholder and the experts of the Chair have edited and published:
- 6 books,
- 1 book chapter,
- 4 journal papers.
The publications focus on policy analysis and formulation (higher education), intellectual capital management, foresight, and Big Data analytics.
