Today, October 6, 2020, the Technical University of Moldova (UTM) and the National Agency for Energy Regulation (ANRE) signed a Cooperation Agreement.
The purpose of the Agreement is to form an effective collaboration, aiming to adjust the study process to the needs of the economic and social environment in the Republic of Moldova and to ensure a level of staff training based on European Community standards, while strengthening the potential of ANRE with the help of competent and highly qualified staff and providing advisory assistance on the promotion of the Agency’s core activities.
During the signing of the agreement, the rector of UTM, prof. Viorel BOSTAN, made the remark: “The Technical University is rich in experience when it comes to the training of specialists. And when the student is truly invested in the field of the faculty of his choice, the result is very fruitful. By signing this Agreement, we aim to open up some new opportunities for our students, opportunities that will lead them to study thoroughly and persevere to achieve their goal.”
Veaceslav UNTILA, general director of ANRE, mentioned: “As a former graduate of the Technical University, to me, the signing of the collaboration agreement between ANRE and UTM is a natural and necessary act. We want to get involved and contribute to becoming future specialists, to support and appreciate their knowledge and its application, to familiarize them with the specifics of the Agency’s activity and to help them build a professional career. In the process of implementing the Agreement, we will also take into account this aspect of the relations between the two institutions.”
The document provides for technical-scientific cooperation and the exchange of information for the development and improvement of personnel in the engineering and technical field; developing partnership relations between the university environment and the economic and social environment; organizing educational, scientific events, which will contribute to the improvement of the specialists’ capacities; selection and recommendation, at the request of ANRE, of the graduates of the faculty, for their placement in the field of work, and other mutual commitments.
The first step taken within the collaboration between the two institutions was the delivery of the equipment from the former State Energy Inspectorate, for the consolidation of the technical-material foundation of the laboratories of the Faculty of Energy and Electrical Engineering of UTM.
