Crăciunescu Ioana CosminaStudent
I strongly believe that our society has evolved in an unexpected manner for the past years. Taking into consideration the fact that technology is stronger than ever before, its application in governance represented the next almost natural move. In my opinion, the bond that is creating between science, technology and governance eventually leads to a better world, where corruption and nepotism will eventually fade away. This Master program will definitely help me get a better understanding of the public administrative systems, as I am eager to learn more about the application of science and technology in the above mentioned field.

The idea of the Master program “Science, Technology and Innovation in Public Governance” sounded as there was a need to change the country for the better. In my opinion, there are plenty of aspects that need to be reassessed within out public administrative system. With regard to my background, I am a Sales and Human Resources Specialist. I joined this Master program in order to gather a thorough understanding of the mechanisms of development within the public administrative program, amid great technological change.
Grigorovici Raluca TeodoraMarketing Specialist
Given the fact that I worked as a PR specialist and, now, as a marketer, I believe that most of our problems stem from communication issues. Just try and think how much easier everything would be if communication wasn’t an issue in most relationships, especially professional ones. I think that this problem is even more poignant in governance – look at the bureaucracy in our country! Even a part of that could be solved by transparent and innovative communication software. The issue that I pointed out can be fixed by implementing technology advancements and innovative programs in governance. I would like to solve this problem once and for all through the use of technology and innovation and I believe that this Master program can help me achieve this goal.

The “course of my mind” goes hand in hand with technology and information. We have a lot of information, how can we handle it without technology? Sure, it can be done with a piece of paper and a few years of work instead of hours. Yes, that’s technology seen in a simple way and this is what are we doing here, we try to improve and do things effective and efficient.

Remeș Tudor PaulGame Tester
The moment I’ve heard about the Sci-Tech Master, I was sure that it had my name on it. Anything related to the ICT is like a hobby for me. I strongly believe that the future of any kind of administration will be more dependent on such technologies. You could think of us, the students of this master, as a new “breed” of public servants that can and will change the way the current public administration works. Innovation is indeed the key to success.

Bogdan Petrisor ArseneStudent
I enrolled in this program because I want more democracy. I am selfish as I am concerned mainly with my freedom and our problem here is that only you can guarantee it. I believe that technology can bring us better tools for collaboration. True, there is no shortage of unethical use of technology. Yet I believe that together, given that we share some values and ideals, we can build new systems for securing our livelihoods and freedoms. I challenge myself to question the premises of everyday life, materialize new possibilities and abolish obsolete lines of argumentation that restricting our range of action. Let me take the freedom to tell you that I studied Philosophy and Politics and worked in the NGO sector.
Mihai Alexandru ChiraStudent
I am an innovator and a business developer who focused his whole life on becoming a source of knowledge. My main career and academic focus was the internal efficiency of corporations. Thus, I have studied International Economics at University of Essex in Colchester, Management in Sibiu and now Science, Innovation and Technology in Cluj-Napoca. At the same time I worked as a business consultant, marketer, PR specialist and IT support for various companies across Europe. All those brought me this point, after years of gathering research intel and experience, where I started working as a specialist in corporate restructuring. I have taken a complex approach to the matter by integrating advance market research, changes in human behavior and expectation trends, and expertise in human resources, IT and business development, which coupled together result in efficient and cheap restructuring programs that are meant to increase profits, motivate employees and customer loyalty.

In the new social and economic context, as a future doctor, I realized that, for a correct approach of the Romanian medical system in order to build a strong, trustful relationship with the patient I need more than the classical medical school.
