Ionut-Gabriel Farcas, PhD candidate at the Chair of Scientific Computing (Prof. H.-J. Bungartz), has recently won the prize for the Best Romanian Student at postgraduate level in Europe 2019. The contest, which takes place every year, is organized by the League of Romanian Students from Abroad (LSRS), and it is the only event dedicated to recognizing the merits of Romanians studying in Europe, North America, or other continents. In the first phase, all candidates are evaluated by a jury consisting of previous winners of the contest. Among these candidates, a few - this year five in Ionut's category - are chosen as finalists. In the second phase, the finalists are then evaluated by a grand jury formed by Romanian Academics and other important Romanian personalities. For 2019, the grand jury chose Ionut Farcas as the winner! The contest ended with a gala, which took place at the House of Parliament in Bucharest on January 7, 2020.
