Who are we?
The Romanian Academic Forum is a foundation with legal personality registered in the Register of Associations and Foundations according to the Decision of the Court of District 1 from 28.09.2007.

What do we want?
To contribute at the progress of the Romanian society by uniting competences acknowledged at the national and international level, around some projects of general interest.

Who do we address?
To national and local opinion leaders capable to positively influence the economical, political and educational reforms, as well as the cultural and moral progress of the communities; to business leaders who can finance  and support big national projects; to persons with high responsibilities in the central and local administration who can make known our projects.

How do we act?
By organizing conferences, round tables, informal meetings, standing workshops, focus-groups, open debates on the Internet as well as by an internal communication system. In all of these debates we will follow the Rules of a civilized polemics established by the University of Oxford and in the relations with the press we will apply the Chatham House Rule.

What kind of revue is FAR XXI?
It is a revue that approaches serious problems in a synthetic and attractive manner. FAR XXI facilitates the mutual knowledge between the most important Romanian personalities of science and culture from the country and from abroad. It allows to the public opinion to get to know the professional accomplishments, the biographical details of important Romanian personalities of science and culture. The excessive presence of the initiator of the Romanian Academic Forum in the first number of our revue, for witch we apologize, is due to the necessity of presenting the main characteristics of our civic projects; when this will become known, the priority will become the interactive interventions of the participants at our events as well as the contributions of our readers.

Why is it called FAR XXI?
FAR is the acronym of the Romanian Academic. The Forum - the symbol of the civilization of the ancient Rome; Academic because the basis of the Hellenic civilization and, by extension, of the European one were initiated by Plato and his disciples by the dialogues in the garden of Academos; Romanian because the project is mainly addressing to our nation. The reason for joining the words Academic Forum is to suggest that the obligation of the persons from the academic environments is to save the forum imagined like a space of intelligent, lofty and tolerant dialogue from the demotion in which it was subject by the explosion of vulgarity, intolerance and violence on the Internet. XXI define the necessity of understanding the challenges of the new century in which we have paced.  FAR XXI wants to be a bright mark for those who adhere at our device: “Think and Act”.
