Direct / indirect beneficiaries

The beneficiaries of the project results can be grouped into several categories:

Direct beneficiaries of the infrastructure, which can directly access the research infrastructure:

- Researchers in the field of life sciences (biology, ecology, biotechnology), natural sciences (physics, chemistry, mathematics / informatics, Geoscience) from research institutes and universities, who can carry out high quality scientific papers / studies / analyses, benefitting from the necessary conditions created by complex, specialized and high performance fitting with which the infrastructure and the developed information system provided. Accessing the research centre can be achieved through research partnerships and as papers / studies / analyses requested in the form of services.

- The newly created research infrastructure will stimulate and promote: i) research and development activities, technology transfer and services: i) continuous training and improvement of the human resource in the research teams which will work in the research centre, iii) increasing visibility of the scientific community at a national and international level; and iv) increasing the number of specialists in relevant disciplines to cope with the complexity and scale of environmental problems, iv) increase the level of internal and international cooperation in scientific research programs in the fields of environment sciences and sustainable development; v) mobility of research personnel through national / international scientific exchanges ensured by access to a complex and competitive research infrastructure for researchers from other universities and institutes.

- Young researchers - MSc, Ph.D., post-doctoral students, who will be encouraged by the work space /environment towards highly qualitative scientific research in order to develop research projects, to specialize in the fields of ecology and biology and to complete their dissertations, doctoral theses and other scientific papers in such fields. Conducting research internships and training of young scientists in the centre laboratories is an important element in human resource training.

- professionals in the economic field (specialists in hospitals and medical centers, enterprises / SME, industry) who will receive theoretical and practical training for continuing professional education. One of the roles of the newly created infrastructure is to stimulate innovation and technology transfer to the economic environment. The team of specialists of the structure will provide the necessary scientific expertise for various research studies / consulting, analysis / testing required by the economic environment.

- Specialists in environmental science from central and local administration units: ministries, environmental agencies, directions of water management and representatives of NGOs (Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development,”Romsilva” RN , “Romanian Waters” National Agency, National Agency for Agricultural Consulting ("ANCA"), Regional Development Agencies, the administrations of protected areas in regions where the research is conducted, NGOs). They benefit from various studies conducted in this infrastructure through partnership programs or contracts for research and economics.

Indirect beneficiaries:

- Beneficiaries of the results of knowledge management development regarding socio-ecological complexes, where knowledge transfer is not carried out based on a contract for the provision of services; i) specialists in environmental sciences from central and local units that benefit from the methodology and management tools prepared in a form accessible to both policy makers and users and assistance in developing regional management plans or components of ecological networks at local, regional (Natura 2000 sites and national natural parks, etc.) - assisting in the decision making process, ii ) social partners in the economic and administrative environment that will be consulted and invited to participate in carrying out various phases of the research programs in order to develop support system for assisting in the decision making process: farmers, economic societies, interest groups.

- All categories of service consumers that will benefit from research through access to new technologies / methodologies for analyzing environmental impact and assessing the impact of different factors on biological systems: the health of the environment and population, food safety and traceability of foodstuff, impact of contaminants (GMO, pesticides, antibiotics, heavy metals, food additives) on human and animal health.

The creation of the transdisciplinary research platform achieves the integration required for addressing the complexity of the socio-ecological system, which is missing at this point, and affects the ability of the academic community to provide and promote long-term solutions needed to implement adaptive management. This supports the development and strengthening of the research infrastructure and integrated monitoring of socio-ecological complexes in Romania.

Examples of services that can be secured through the platform: consulting services, developing management plans, environmental impact studies, GIS technology-specific analysis (assessment of spatial heterogeneity of different areas, functional evaluation by means of mathematical modeling, analysis and studies on the content in heavy metals of various types of samples and biogeochemical aspects of their circuit, analysis of different pollutants, volatile organic synthesis, elemental analysis (C, H, N, S) for biological samples, minerals and synthesis, research studies for national agencies, ministries, research institutions, sequencing, genotyping, detection of chromosome abnormalities, polymorphisms, gene expression analysis (RNA and protein) for biomedical research, animal genetic analysis (genotyping for characterization and improvement) for biocompatibility testing of materials in the implants, prostheses, in vitro toxicity tests for chemicals (drugs), nanoparticles environmental pollutants (pesticides, heavy metals, polyaromatic hydrocarbons), characterization of products obtained through biotechnology, testing anti-inflammatory effects of plant extracts on experimental models of neurogenic inflammation; testing the effects of agonists / antagonists of ion channels or receptors for pharmaceutical or food companies using the automated patch-clamp technique, studies on the alteration of intracellular signaling cascades, by different compounds.

Thus, the platform will enable the opening of important communication channels between research-development activities and the economic environment.
