GRAND PRIZE of the International Exhibition “INVENTICA 2019” offered to UTM

The International Exhibition “Inventica 2019”, organized by the National Institute of Inventions at the Technical University “Gheorghe Asachi” in Iasi (TUIASI) took place in the Hall of Passover Lost in Copou, between 26-28 June, Iași.

The purpose of the exhibition is to bring together universities, research institutes, companies, associations, inventors and people interested in the field of invention. The event has been an effective opportunity for communication, display of research results and innovations.

The Technical University of Moldova presented 19 works of 66 professors and PhD students,all  protected by patents. The results were appreciated highly by the participants, visitors, but most importantly, by the jury members: worldwide inventors, representatives of 25 higher education institutions of education and research.

Thus, the Grand Prize was awarded to the Technical University of Moldova. This prestigious award acts as a motivational impulse and imposes some responsibilities for UTM, such as the constant advancement in academic research, creativity, innovation and ingenuity among the youths.
