The first edition of the InventCor International Show

19 December 2020






The InventCor 2020 International Invention Show, which took place in Deva on December 17-19, hosted 245 inventions from 14 countries. The event was organized by the inventor Corneliu Birtok Băneasă, a teacher at the Faculty of Engineering in Hunedoara within Politehnica University Timișoara, and by the CorneliuGroup Research-Innovation Association. The event was online due to the safety measures imposed during the pandemic.

The show aimed at cultivating and educating the creative-innovative spirit, especially among youth, who need the power of example. "We want to nurture this creative-innovative spirit among young people. Therefore, we recognized that young people need to come into contact with this creative environment, on all levels, because, later, they will be the ones who will have their own patented inventions", said Corneliu Birtok Băneasă.

During the debates on the first day of the show, the participants proved the importance of innovation for companies, mentioning, in this context, that it will make the difference between organizations, as an element of representation of a company.

Among the participants to InventCor 2020, there were universities, research institutes, multinational companies, but also private inventors. The projects can be seen on the internet, on the Facebook page specially dedicated to the event: "InventCor2020".
