Transilvania University of Brașov (UNITBV) is the largest university in the center of Romania. It is a comprehensive university that offers study programs in 43 domains.
The mission of UNITBV is the production and transfer of knowledge to the society by means of initial training at bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees, advanced scientific research, development, innovation and technological transfer. In addition, the mission of UNITBV envisages the organization of postgraduate programs and enhancing the interaction between the University and the society through partnerships in compliance with the principle of a knowledge-based society.
During its 70 years of existence, Transilvania University of Brașov has developed into a truly prestigious institution both at a national and international level. Without abandoning our history, which integrates the scientific, industrial, and cultural traditions of the region, we focus on the dynamics of the present and plan the future. Modernity, stability, and dynamism are the coordinates that currently define our university, along with our aspirations for innovation, creativity, and relevance for the contemporary society.

Romanian Surveyor Union (U.G.R.) is a professional, independent, non-government and non-political organization, with a non-working character. It was established in 1990 through the initiative of geodetic engineers. One of the UGR objectives is to increase the prestige of geodesy and professional authority of surveyors. The UGR sustain and protect the professional and economic interests of its members, while presenting and promoting the importance of surveying activities. UGR initiate and propose laws regarding the surveying activities and surveyor role. Today UGR counts almost 1.100 members, organized in 47 local associations. Romanian Surveyors Union is member of FIG.

Section X of Petroleum, Mining Engineering and Geonomy of Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences, includes scientists and specialists, Romanian and foreign, from the fields of petroleum engineering, mining, machine building, geology, geography, topography/cadastre, geonomy.
The scientific and technical economic objectives of section X concern the superior capitalization of useful mineral substances and their sustainable management, in good harmony with the environment.
For the development of human society a component of the greatest importance is the capitalization and processing of useful mineral substances (solids, liquids, gases) from the earth's crust, seas and oceans, even from the cosmos through mining, so mining and oil engineering is from scientifically inextricably linked to the geonomic and ecological sciences.
The word "geonomy" was used to describe the system of rational management of resources (for the meadow and the Danube delta) first in 1909, by biologist Grigore Antipa.
Geonomy is a well-defined science, both in theory and in practice: it studies the use, "consumption" and reaction of environments, but can also experiment and predict actions and solutions to problems. Descriptive starting from measures and tests, conceptual starting from modeling, and predictive through the perspective of the described phenomena, geonomy allows us to know under what conditions the transformations that affect our everyday life are elaborated. This (relatively) new science allows us to predict the consequences of our decisions and actions, through impact studies. It can show us what we need to do to increase our chances of surviving as a species on a constantly evolving planet, and what dangers our future may threaten.
