  • Description
  • About Us

    The “URBAN-​INCERC” (National Insti­tute for Research and Devel­op­ment in Con­truc­tion, Urban Plan­ning and Sus­tain­able Spa­tial Devel­op­ment has been estab­lished fol­low­ing the deci­sion of the Roman­ian Gov­ern­ment No. 1398 of Novem­ber 18, 2009, pub­lished in “Mon­i­torul Ofi­cial” No. 816 of Novem­ber 27, 2009. The Insti­tute suc­ceeds the for­mer National Insti­tute for Build­ing Research (INCERC), the National Insti­tute for Research and Devel­op­ment in Urban Plan­ning and Spa­tial Devel­op­ment (URBAN­PROIECT) and the National Resource Cen­tre for Research, Devel­op­ment and Doc­u­men­ta­tion in Con­struc­tion, Archi­tec­ture, Urban Plan­ning and Spa­tial Devel­op­ment (CDCAS) and con­tin­ues their impres­sive works.

    The activ­ity of the URBAN-​INCERC is co-​ordinated by the Min­istry of Regional Devel­op­ment and Tourism. Due to this fact, URBAN-​INCERC will con­tinue to be deeply involved in the for­mu­la­tion of poli­cies and the devis­ing of pro­grams and plans in its fields of com­pe­tence as well as in the spe­cific reg­u­la­tory work, con­tribut­ing to the exploita­tion of the research results as infor­ma­tion /​doc­u­ments of pub­lic interest.

    URBAN-​INCERC also pre­pares doc­u­ments con­tain­ing solu­tions to the prob­lems in its fields of inter­est, per­forms research into build­ing and build­ing mate­ri­als dif­fer­ent form those spec­i­fied in the National Research and Devel­op­ment and Inno­va­tion Plan; it per­forms stud­ies and research for the devel­op­ment of tech­ni­cal and eco­nomic reg­u­la­tions as a base for the con­cep­tion, build­ing, uti­liza­tion and post-​utilization of build­ings; it car­ries out applied research in regional devel­op­ment and spa­tial devel­op­ment, the devel­op­ment of the net­work of set­tle­ments, poly­cen­tric­ity, pro­tec­tion of built-​up areas and nat­ural areas, envi­ron­men­tal friendly reha­bil­i­ta­tion and recon­struc­tion; it per­forms stud­ies and applied research in urban plan­ning for sus­tain­able devel­op­ment of set­tle­ments, diag­noses and fore­casts in spa­tial devel­op­ment, urban plan­ning and hous­ing, etc.

    All this work is aimed at extend­ing, on the one hand, the reg­u­la­tory frame­work and, on the other hand, the dis­sem­i­na­tion of the spe­cific infor­ma­tion /​data in build­ing, urban plan­ning, sus­tain­able spa­tial devel­op­ment and hous­ing ensur­ing an active par­tic­i­pa­tion of URBAN-​INCERC in the imple­men­ta­tion of the objec­tives of the Strate­gic Con­cept of Spa­tial Devel­op­ment in Roma­nia – 2030.

    • Tech­nol­ogy of con­crete and mortars
    • Rein­forced and pre-​cast con­crete structures
    • Masonry struc­tures and metal­lic structures
    • Seis­mic haz­ard and risk
    • Seis­mic vul­ner­a­bil­ity of buildings
