• Cadet INOVA® is an event promoted by theMG Nicolae USCOICorps of Cadets, Sibiu and “Nicolae Bălcescu” Land Forces Academy of Sibiu under the High Patronage of Romanian Inventors Forum in order to support innovation and scientific research at national and international level in the vision of young researchers (students, Master’s Degree students, PhD candidates, PhD degree holders and researchers not older than 35);
  • The “Cadet INOVA” event has been conceived as an opportunity for the young researchers to present the results of their innovations and research as prototypes, maquettes, computerized presentation of techniques and procedures accompanied by posters and to achieve scientific partnerships in order to identify technological, industrial and research niches;
  • By the organization and the carrying out of the event, we aim at facilitating the knowledge and the promoting of student scientific achievements both in the military field and in the civilian one, of aspects corroborated with the development and diversification of technologies and of socio-economic applications of research in different implementation environments;
  • We also aim at increasing the degree of awareness at the level of society of the importance and of the contribution brought by young researches to technological development and added value;
  • Registration of the participants and the presentation of the results of the research within the Exhibition, depending on the capacity of the exposure location, are logistically and financially supported by the organizing institution with the help of the partners and sponsors of the manifestation. Indirect participation is not permitted;
    The Exhibition takes place in Sibiu, in the AUDITORIUM of the "Nicolae Bălcescu" Land Forces Academy, Revoluţiei street, no. 3-5.

"Originally the word - cadet - meant the young man (the son of a nobleman or of an officer) who prepared for a military career. Cadet INOVA proposes an encounter with nobility too: a nobility of the spirit of those who "burn" in the realm of scientific creation, who have chosen this path not for financial comfort or public recognition, but because they know that this is their purpose in the world and because they feel that in this way they can serve not only their homeland, but the whole humankind. Cadet INOVA is rooted in serious, constant and lasting preoccupation for scientific research, in the lessons offered by those who have raised the scientific bar to the level of performance, in the need to provide support, recognition and legitimacy to the notable achievements of young thinkers. It represents the mouth piece of bright minds polished in years of study, which went from potential to performance and which are able to certify that quality and professionalism will always make a difference."

"Cadet INOVA 2017, a trademark of OSIM Bucharest, number M 143894, brings into focus - within the In memoriam section - an emblematic figure of the universal scientific patrimony, who set her existential coordinates around the verbs to give and to give herself to others: Ana ASLAN. She created and implemented, at national level, the concept of ""prevention of aging"; she founded and led the first Institute of Geriatrics in the world, in Otopeni and her famous name is engraved on the mausoleum of the father of medicine, Hippocrates, in Larissa, Thessaly (Greece)." (Inventor dr. ing. dipl. Silviu Mihai Petrişor, President of the Cadet INOVA Exhibition)

"To be forever young does not mean to be 20, it means to be optimistic, to feel good, to have an ideal in life to fight for in order to achieve it." (Gerontologist Inventor Acad. Prof. Ana ASLAN, MD, PhD)

"Professor Cernomazu is evidence that in Romanian education there is a contrast between the unpredictable variability of the teachers and the relative stability of the system. Convinced that the mathematical descriptions of nature are not truths or models, engineer Cernomazu puts great emphasis on the experiment, develops energy and electrotechnical laboratories, conceives laboratory papers and invents experimental stands. An exceptional professor of exemplary modesty with a vast encyclopaedic culture knows how to work both with pupils and PhD students, managing to inspire the spirit so necessary for the creator of new. Academic activity in Professor Cernomaz's concept is actually responsability, assumption of a creed and its application. Mentorship comes from generosity, comes from the belief that you can change something, by giving. The professor has given up to bureaucratic activity over the last few years, refused all the functions he was offered, fled to the lab, and continued doing what he knew best." (Inventor Prof. Eng. Dipl. Dan Laurenţiu Milici, PhD, Ştefan cel Mare University of Suceava)

"Cadet INOVA 2019, a trademark of O.S.I.M. Bucharest (State Office for Inventions and Trademarks), number M 143894, brings into focus ― within the In memoriam section ― an emblematic figure of our nation, the first female engineer in the world, the first female member of the General Association of the Engineers in Romania, head of the laboratories of the Geological Institute of Romania, the sister of engineer Dimitrie Leonida: Scientific Researcher, Diplomate Engineer Professor Elisa LEONIDA ZAMFIRESCU. She focused on the testing of drinking water, signing over 85,000 analysis bulletins which were published in the Economic Studies series, edited by the Geological Institute of Romania. Her contribution to the research of Romania's mineral richness resulted in numerous published scientific monographs, patents and scientific articles, occupying a place of honor in the gallery of the great figures of the national, European and world science."

"Cadet INOVA 2020, a trademark of O.S.I.M. Bucharest (the State Office for Inventions and Trademarks), number M 143894, brings into focus ― within the In memoriam section ― two emblematic figures of the Romanian creation and innovation ― inventors, scientists, geniuses ― diplomat engineer George (Gogu) CONSTANTINESCU (04.10.1881-12.12.1965) and academician diplomat engineer Henri COANDĂ (07.06.1886-25.11.1972). At the UN headquarters in New York, at the library on the 32nd floor, it is mentioned that Romania is ranked second in the world within the Creation and Creativity Section. The first three nominees are: Traian Vuia, Gogu Constantinescu and Constantin Brâncuşi. In 1926, the British magazine "The Graphic" published a picture with the scientific personalities from 1900-1925 and the inventor Gogu Constantinescu is mentioned among the "17 pioneers in the way of progress", along with Einstein, Kelvin, Graham Bell, Edison, Marconi, Marie Currie etc." (Inventor eng. dipl. Silviu Mihai Petrişor, PhD, President of the Cadet INOVA Exhibition)

"Henri Coandă is an aviation pioneer, a physicist and the inventor of the jet engine. He is also the discoverer of the effect that bears his name today. After graduating from high school in 1903, he first experienced the rigors of the Military School for Artillery, Engineering and Navy Officers in Bucharest and then went to Germany, to the Technische Hochschule in Charlottenburg, where he obtained his doctoral degree in Engineering Sciences. He eventually left the army, which did not fit with his education of inventor and with his creative spirit. This time he left for France where he enlisted in the Higher School of Aeronautics. He finished his courses the following year as valedictorian and then began his career with the well-known French engineer Gustave Eiffel, with whom he would become friends. In 1910 he created and tested the world's first jet aircraft — called "Coandă 1910", which he also presented at the International Aeronautical Show in Paris. That same year he observed a phenomenon that would be called the "Coandă effect", which is, in fact, the invention that made him famous. The discovery would be patented later, only in 1934, under the name "method and apparatus for deviation of a fluid into another fluid.” ”Throughout his entire activity, Henri Coandă was the author of 250 patents for inventions in various fields. He also received honorary titles, among which that of member of the Royal Aeronautical Society of London and that of member of the Romanian Academy. He also received the title of Doctor Honoris Causa of the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, where he will reorganize the Aeronautical Engineering Deparment in 1971, together with academician Elie Carafoli."
