Periodic Reporting for period 2 - EBSIS (EBSIS - Event Based Systems in Iaşi - A Twinning between Universitatea Alexandru Ioan Cuza din Iaşi, Université de Neuchâtel and Technische Universität Dresden)
Reporting period: 2017-04-01 to 2018-12-31
The objectives of the project were fulfilled through the activities executed over the three years while the Twinning action took place. A solid influx of knowledge on the targeted field of research was obtained at UAIC from the project partners. This created strong premises for co-authoring scientific papers, and opened the possibility of future collaboration on research projects. The project activities also led to creation of new contacts in external academic institutions, which should open new possibilities for collaboration also with partners outside the consortium. The academic curriculum of the coordinating institution also benefited from the knowledge transfer. Multiple course contents were expanded to cover elements in the targeted field of research. This created a favourable context for attracting senior students towards research in the technical area of the project. The project was, however, not limited only on raising the research profile of UAIC. The scientific and technological (S&T) capacity of all the institutions involved benefited from multiple of the project activities, which offered the proper ground for knowledge transfer between all partners.
A constant improvement was observed through the project years in respect to a set of defined impact indicators. These showed the steady increase in scientific publications and scientific activities that involved both staff from the coordinating institution as well as from the other project partners, young researchers, and collaborators outside the consortium reached through networking actions. All publications that appeared following the direct impact of project activities were disseminated in important conferences and acknowledged the project. The indicators defined in the project showed an almost double yearly increase in multiple categories of publications proving showing a consistent enhancement of the research capacity.
