University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest is the largest and the oldest technical university in the country and among the most prestigious universities in Romania. Today, the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest is undergoing a continuous modernization process, being involved in a permanent dialogue with great universities in Europe and all over the world. They now want to cooperate with CMR on projects regarding sensors in general and specifically, geothermal applications.

Mihailescu  is Associate Professor at the “Faculty of Applied Science, Holographic Processing and Imaging Laboratory, and Integrated Optoelectronic Laboratory, and Faculty of Power Engineering, Hydraulic Laboratory”. Her university, the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest (UPB),  is leading a preproject financed through an EEA Grant  with the title “Combined optical and acoustic methods to monitor the equipments and the environmental conditions in renewable power plants (geothermal, hydro, wind)”. We will join this project.
