VENUE
The Second Edition of the RoEduNet Conference will be hosted in Iasi,
about 400 km N-E from the Romanian capital Bucharest.

Iasi is the most important political, economic and cultural center in
the Moldavia region and one of the oldest cities in Romania.
It is situated in North-Eastern Romania, between the Moldavian Plateau
and the Jijia Plain, on the Bahlui River.

In the Middle Ages Iasi used to be the crossing point of the most
important commercial roads that passed through Moldavia coming from
Poland, Hungary, Russia and Constantinopole.
The presence of human communities in and around the city has
been confirmed from 4000 B.C. by the Cucuteni civilization.

A constant producer and nurturer of world-renowned intellectual elites,
Iasi still maintains the highest standards in academic education, thus
ensuring the continuity of rich cultural traditions.
