Gen. Stefan Gusa Foundation » Programs&Activities

The goal of our Foundation is to support the scientific and cultural activities, its objectives are searching for the truth in the contemporary political and military history of the Romanian people, emphasizing the role of the army in the crucial moments of our national evolution, educating the young generations in order to increase respect in the major values of our national culture and their integration in the European culture and history.
          According to the status of General Stefan Gusa Foundation, we will continue to organize and support, as we are doing in the present, the deployment of scientific events – conferences, symposiums, internal and external courses, printing books about political, military and security strategy, and also we will continue to offer support to the military families which are in difficulty (war veterans, injured people, those who suffered from accidents and have medical problems, orphans, widows etc)
        In order to fulfill our goal, we make efforts to establish a cooperation framework in the public-private system between General Stefan Gusa Foundation on one hand and the Army institutions, the National Defense University, the Academies and the Schools of Applications on the other hand – by signing protocols in which we state our offer and our methods for achieving the objectives of the collaboration.
         Even from the beginning, our Foundation initiated a number of actions as following:
