Eroilor Avenue ("Heroes Avenue")

Is a central avenue in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, connecting the Avram Iancu and Unirii squares. The northern side of the avenue was converted during the late 2000s into a pedestrian zone. In the late 19th century and until 1919, the avenue was called Deák Ferenc utca. During the interwar era, the street was called Regina Maria, after Queen Mary of Romania; during the communist era it was named after Petru Groza, a Romanian prime-minister of that time.

Lake Chios in Cluj Napoca`s Central Park

After a walk in the park, the banks of the Chios lakeside are ideal to rest and admire the small island in its center, the wild ducks - which for years the lake is their home, or the moving boats and pedalos that slowly shine on the water.

Are you a young researcher in the field of biosciences with new ideas and full of initiative?

Then this is the place for you. If you are an undergraduate, graduate, or PhD student come and present your research at the International Symposium Young Researchers in BioSciences that will take place in Cluj-Napoca (European Youth Capital-2015) between 25th and 30th July 2016.

If you’re wondering why you should involve yourself in this symposium,it’s because we wish to gather youngsters from all the corners of the world in order to encourage new scientists to make their work known. Some other perks of taking part in this event are making new friends amongst other researchers, the possibility of new collaborations, gaining experience by presenting your research in a coherent way in front of an audience and improving your ability to value your results based on constructive criticism.

You can present your working process and results through an oral presentation or a poster. In case you don’t want to actively participate, you are welcome to assist.

Beside the presentations, you will have the opportunity to assist to a keynote lecture, held by a well-known scientist that will be announced at the end of May 2016.

So, what are your plans for this summer?
