Interdisciplinary Research in Action. The Case of the University “Constantin Brancoveanu” of Piteşti

This paper positions interdisciplinarity as an integral feature of contemporary scientific research, stressing its role and the necessity to overcome possible barriers related to organizational and institutional constraints, team integration imperatives or disciplinary boundaries. At the same time, the study makes an inventory of European and Romanian opportunities in interdisciplinary research, especially under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research. As a case study, the paper introduces the interdisciplinary project carried out by Constantin Brancoveanu University in Pitesti to draw Pitesti City Development Strategy for 2007-2013. All disciplines involved are presented through their interactions in the project, with a special attention given to repeated and constant attractions between specializations. The final conclusion is that Management plays a core role in any type of interdisciplinary project, acting as facilitator of teams’ integration. Therefore, interdisciplinarity could work only where the practice of collaboration is nourished by the leader of the team, using specialized managerial integration tools.

Sustainable Development Strategies in Domestic and International Tourism

In this work-paper we have analysed a separate chapter of tourism’s sustainable development, namely development strategies. Given the economic, social and political importance in tourism, and also the overall contribution to the development of a region, we considered that a distinct approach of the tourism development strategies was required in domestic and international terms. Analysing the local level, the development strategy of Romania considers that tourism can become one of the key factors in the process of reinvigorating the economy, given the fact that Romania has huge tourism potential, which is appropriate to the different types of tourism, at national and regional level. It is considered that one of the main issues which needs to be addressed is the use of the Romanian tourism potential and its use in inappropriate conditions.
