CV, January 2011

Prof. Dan C. Dascalu, currently CEO and President of the Board of IMT-Bucharest, was the founder and the director of the Centre for Microtechnology, CMT (1991), the Institute of Microtechnology, IMT (1993), and of the National Institute for Research and Development in Microtechnologies (IMT-Bucharest), created (1996) by merging IMT with ICCE (Research Institute for Electronic Components). Apart from being CEO and President of the Board in IMT-Bucharest, he is also coordinating an interdisciplinary “Centre of nanotechnologies”, part of IMT, an entity under the aegis of the Romanian Academy, as well as the Centre for Micro- and nanofabrication (IMT-MINAFAB). Dan Dascalu is also Professor at the “Politehnica” University of Bucharest (PUB), Department of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology, as well as full member (Academician) of the Romanian Academy (of Sciences).

Dan Dascalu graduated the Electronics Faculty of the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest in 1965 and obtained the Ph. D. in Electronics in 1971, from the same University. The experimental part of the Ph. D. thesis was developed at the University of Birmingham, UK (1968-1969). He is the author of “Transit-time Effects in Unipolar Solid-State Devices” and “Electronic Processes in Unipolar Solid State Devices” (both published by Abacus Press, Kent, U.K., 1974 and 1977, respectively) as of other  books and many technical papers published in scientific periodicals or conference proceedings. His early research experience was is in the range of semiconductor devices, basically microwave negative resistance diodes and metal - semiconductor contacts. He was also in charge of research groups developing microwave digital transmitters (until 1989).

Dan Dascalu is Editor-en-chief of the “Romanian Journal for Information Science and Technology” (published since 1998 by the Romanian Academy and listed by Thomson ISI)) and coordinator of a series of books “Micro- and nanoengineering” (in English, Publishing House of the Romanian Academy, 17 volumes in 2010). He is also the General Chairman of CAS, International Conference of Semiconductors (devoted to micro- and nanotechnologies), an IEEE event, in 2011 at its 34th edition. Prof. Dascalu was designated the Chairman of the Technical Program Committee for ESSDERC 2013 (to take place in Bucharest).

Prof. Dascalu also was in charge of developing the National Strategy of Information Society (2000), and he was in charge of developing micro- and nanotechnology parts in R&D programs. At present, he is coordinating NANOPROSPECT (Nanotechnologies in Romania: a prospective study), a project intended to elaborate strategic recommendations for the development of nanotechnologies in Romania.

Since 2007 he is a member of the Consultative Board for R&D (Ministry for Education and Research) and President of the Commission for “New Materials, Micro- and Nanotechnologies” of the same Consultative Board. Prof. Dascalu is also the coordinator of the Romanian Nanomedicine Network RO-NANOMED. He is the coordinator of the project “Postdoctoral studies in micro- and nanotechnologies” (MNT-POSTDOC), financed from structural funding (2010-2013).

Prof. Dan Dascalu is an expert representing Romania in the NMP Program Committee (since 2002, FP6 and FP7), in the Governing Board of ENIAC – JU (public private partnership for nanoelectronics in Europe), and in the European “mirror group” for Nanomedicine. He was coordinating (2004-2008) three European support projectsdevoted to networking in micro- and nanotechnologies in Romania and in Eastern Europe. He is now the representative of IMT in the European project NanoSustain, 2010-2013 (Development of sustainable solutions for nanotechnology-based products based on hazard characterization and LCA).
