My current territory of work at the Ministry of Justice is surrounded by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the Romanian judicial system with innovative and integrated solutions, as fundamental for strengthening the public sector’s trust among citizens.
My professional achievements have been powered by working towards developing policies, strategies and projects that have put Romania on the European digital map, for more than 10 years. Before joining the Ministry of Justice, I served as a Secretary of State within the Ministry for Information Society. The most valuable contribution was developing the National Strategy on Digital Agenda for Romania 2020, which aims to drive Romanian citizens and businesses to get the most out of the new technologies and help boost the national economy accordingly. Another recognition was leading towards success “Knowledge based Economy”, the most innovative ICT-based programme in Romania, a European and internationally recognized project that revived 255 k-deprived rural communities via intelligent use of modern technologies.
Previously, as General Director for Information Society in the Ministry of resort for 4 years, I coordinated the definition and review of the national policies for e-inclusion, ICT in pre-university education, eGovernment for local and central administration, acting also as a national coordinator for several systemic IT&C projects.
I established and extended relationships with European Commission and World Bank, public and private organizations, professional and academic bodies and media in order to create a common perspective for enabling the shift of Romania towards a Knowledge based Society.
