Quality of host organisation, including adequacy of infrastructures/facilities
The host institution is a non-profit foundation founded in 2006 among the objectives of which is to finance projects related to European development strategies and also the establishment of relationships with similar institutions from the exterior of the country and the facilitation of exchange of information on various topics. It organises conventional and unconventional courses. Among the conventional courses are several in the field of constructions regarding interior design. Among the unconventional courses are some in project management.
The foundation has a number of members, some of which published with support of the foundation books in the field of architectural heritage, for example about the churches of different faiths in Romania.
The support in publication of books is essential for the dissemination of knowledge envisaged in the frame of the project and has been appropriately foreseen in the costs breakdown.
The main training of complementary skills will be provided through the implication of the fellow in the project management course, both strengthening and broadening the knowledge of the researcher previously acquired, as described, in the field, through such a practice and also through the new practice of teaching, which would open new possibilities for the future to integrate in the environment of university teaching.
The foundation also supports informative events in order to obtain scholarships for study and research, where the international experience of the applicant who has benefited of such scholarships on both national and European level would build a plus, through the offer of a personal journey in the own experience and may eventually lead to the development of a new course. Also useful in this regard may be the experience in publishing of the fellow, since a course on writing scientific papers and/or technical reports can be given in the future in the frame of the project.
The foundation has supported research projects, for example in collaboration with the Academy of Economic Sciences (a university). Out of this initiative the project management course has been born.
The foundation is active in consulting, which would lead to developing complementary skills in this field, and be useful if another career path, the change to industry/consulting would be embarked by the applicant.
The building where the foundation has its headquarters accommodates individual offices with office desks and personal computers with all necessary software and printers with internet connection. For the execution of the project it will be necessary to have a conventional scanner and a slide scanner, and a digital photo camera, for which costs have been foreseen in the costs breakdown to follow. The library of the foundation will be available for use by the fellow.
