We are honored for the appreciation expressed towards the results of the cross-border project in which UVT was a part, a project carried out by a dynamic and very ambitious team of the Faculty of Chemistry, Biology, Geography from UVT. I warmly congratulate the colleagues in this team, the coordinator of the researchers in the project, prof. Dr. Adriana Isvoran.
