Welcome to Research and Innovation in International Arbitration at the University of Bucharest. With a sense of pride and privileges I would like to bring to the knowledge of the researchers, academics, members of our boards, international fellows and general public that the University of Bucharest that was founded in 1864 by decree of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza to convert the former Saint Sava Academy into the current University of Bucharest, making it the second oldest modern university in Romania. In the year 2016 under the agies of the Senate of the university was established the International Arbitration Research Centre. The Centre trough its youthfulness members and its experts members it has proved to become a beckon to knowledge and innovation seeker not only all over the country but also over the world. I am immensely happy that with total dedication and commitment from the management board and sincere involvement of the international prestigious professors and the Faculty of Law IARC’s members, the Center could produce excellent research and innovation result in every stream of its research initiatives and programs.
We made a humble beginning with just a delegate present at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development 2017 at Geneva, Switzerland. Today the IARC has a team of three members who will face the prestigious out set from the World Investment Forum. As well, this year another member was preset to all the meetings that the European Commission on Trade has envisioned. Moreover, our presence in 2017 at the United Nations had its resonance through a scientific collaboration which made a stunning presence at an international conference in Prague this year.
I think that our presence in the national and international research arena it will suport the innovation process in international arbitration from a peak to peak state to an effective system that could enhance access to justice and the rule of law in the international commercial and educational settings.
I wish that all our members, fellows, partners, and readers, will ascend from peak to peak in all their endeavors of life.
