Gala Scopus Awards

30 October 2017






The prestigious "Excellence in Global Contribution" award won by researchers from the Politehnica University Timisoara.

The status of the elite research institution of the Politehnica University Timisoara is reconfirmed by the recent prize won by Radu-Emil Precup, Mircea-Bogdan Rădac and Stefan Preitl at the Gala Scopus Awards, organized for the second time by Elsevier in Romania on 26 October 2017, in Iasi. The three teachers of the Politehnica University Timisoara were awarded the "Elsevier Scopus Award for Excellence in Global Contribution" for research in the fields of systems management and engineering, artificial intelligence, electrical engineering, and electronics.

After awarding the prize, Prof. Eng. Radu-Emil Precup PhD., on behalf of the three winners, addressed the following words to Gala participants: "We congratulate the two other nominated teams and thank Elsevier for the initiative and the effort made in organizing this event. We are honored to have received the "Scopus for Excellence in Global Contribution" award and we believe it is a recognition of our work, which began more than 25 years ago. At present, we have formed a strongly built team in which three generations work side by side. I remember some of the young people: Claudia-Adina Bojan-Dragoş, Alexandra-Iulia Szedlak-Stînean, Radu-Codruţ David, Raul-Cristian Roman, Elena-Lorena Hedrea and some of the experienced ones: Adriana Albu and Florin Dragan. The award-winning results fall into automation, automated control and subdomains of optimization, in which we develop techniques for adjusting, optimizing and modeling systems with varying degrees of artificial intelligence. We thank the Politehnica University Timisoara and the Department of Automation and Computing for constant support and we want the prize to be a motivation to continue on this road."

We remember you that in 2015, in a ranking made by Scopus, Prof.Eng. Radu-Emil Precup PhD., has been named the world's best automotive researcher and in 2016 the team of Prof. Radu-Emil Precup has been awarded the "Grigore Moisil" Award of the Romanian Academy in the section of  "Science and Information Technology ", for a group of three papers: "Contributions to optimization of fuzzy systems ". At the same time, Prof. Eng Precup PhD., received the Excellence Award from the Politehnica University Timisoara in 2015, opening the series of awards that UPT Leaders give for the recognition and support of the elite researchers of the institution.

Radu-Emil Precup and Mircea-Bogdan Rădac also received the Spiru Haret Prize for Education, Environment, IT, awarded in 2016 by the Romanian Academy. We also note that a study conducted in 2017 by the IIoT World website ranks Prof.Eng Radu-Emil Precup PhD., among the top 10 researchers in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Automation.

For the Politehnica University Timisoara, the "Excellence in global contribution" award is a continuation of outstanding research results. The upward trend in the number of articles published by UPT academic community members in journals and proceedings in the ISI - Web of Knowledge circuit - has also been sustained during the last evaluation period: 505 articles published in 2015 reached over 700 articles in 2016.
