In Danubius University, the research is the link between idea and progress. It is the typical human activity that brings a plus of performance and comfort in the civilized society. It is the superior representation of curiosity and of testing it.
In the modern world, the scientific research activity is essential to communities who want to permanently overcome their condition. The progress is the essence of human civilization and the scientific research assures this progress. Increasingly, however, the focus is on keeping conditions and opportunities for progress from generation to generation (sustainable development). So still the scientific research is the one that needs to find the measure of all things and to systematize the development priorities.
Also through scientific progress and the accumulation of knowledge, the innovative communities find the sustainable path and they discover how to make the compromise between the progress at any cost and the sustainable and durable progress.
The paradigm of the modern world has changed. We have all passed from “think big” to “think green”. The paradigm of progress is continuously changing and it reformulates itself every day. Under these circumstances the shift from speed by limitless effort to speed by calculating the minimum effort is a goal that scientists worldwide are working on continuously.
