Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI)
The Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI) is a public institution under the ultimate authority of the Ministry of National Education (MEN), which, through the national and international experience of ongoing projects and financing activities, has accumulated knowledge for implementation of e-administration systems, in order to use it nationally among public administration personnel. UEFISCDI, through its experience in managing financial resources to support the expansion of higher education and scientific research, has developed a number of open-source modules for improving communication with public administration institutions, business sector, and last but not least to researchers and citizens. An important aspect to be mentioned is related to UEFISCDI’s connection with universities, given the fact that UEFISCDI is the financing agency in Romania and at the same time the developer of the National Students Enrolment platform (RMU), which was first launched in 2010 and updated constantly.
