There are two weekly seminars, held at the Institute, 3rd floor:

Differential Geometry Seminar,
Wednesdays, from 10:00 to 12:00.

Topology Seminar,
Fridays, from 11:00 to 13:00.

Senior members currently supervise Master and Ph.D. theses, and teach courses at foreign and Romanian universities
(e.g. University of Bucharest, SNSB).

The research of group members has been and is currently supported by various grants, both national and international.
Members of our team are involved in numerous international collaborations through scientific visits and joint research activities.
