Welcome to EconAcademia, the web platform for Romanian (and Romanian-speaking) academic economists from research universities and institutes in Romania and abroad. Most of the content on this site is in Romanian, but occasionally there will also be brief information in English, for our non-Romanian speaking guests. NB. The pages in Romanian of this site are also easily translatable using, for instance, Google Translate (confirmed by several foreign Econ researchers whom we polled).
