The MODERN SCIENCE AND ENERGY Conference has been organized since 1981 in the idea of being a multidisciplinary platform for the exchange of ideas between academics, researchers and engineers working in energy-related companies operating throughout the chain of production, storage, transport and use.
The interest raised by the specialists in the subject, energy as a global problem of humanity, in line with environmental protection, led to the decision to organize this conference every year, without interruption, from 1981 until 2019.
The works of the MODERN SCIENCE AND ENERGY Conference are divided in two sections, the first being WAYS AND MEANS FOR OBTAINING ENERGY, and the second ENERGY SAVING IN ITS TRANSMISSION AND USE, each with the related structure


Energy in the Universe; solar energy; wind energy; geothermal energy; hydropower; nuclear energy; other sources of energy (chemical, osmotic, seismic, gravitational); energies of biological origin; energy carriers (hydrogen, alcohols, ammonia); new technologies to increase the degree of extraction of fossil fuels; gasification and liquefaction of coal, magneto-hydrodynamic, electrochemical, photoelectric and thermoelectric conversions; studies of natural energy mechanisms – photosynthesis, metabolic processes.

Advanced technologies for the transmission, distribution and use of electric and thermal energy; modern energy-efficient technological processes; energy storage in natural and artificial environments; pumps and heat recovery facilities; capitalization of industrial, agricultural, forestry and domestic by-products for energy purposes; political and economic and social aspects of energy.


This year, 2019, on May 15th -17th will take place the 2019 MODERN SCIENCE AND ENERGY International Conference, venue in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 38th edition.

The importance of both hydrogen energy and research has led to the organisation of the 10th Edition of the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HYDORGEN PRODUCTION and the 3rd Edition of the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RESEARCH, INNOVATION AND COMMERCIALISATION, ICRIC-19, under the dome of this edition of the MODERN SCIENCE AND ENERGY International Conference.


The International Conference on Hydrogen Production (ICH2P-2019) is a multi–disciplinary international conference on the production of hydrogen through various thermal, chemical, biological and other methods, as well as its use in various systems, including fuel cells. It will provide a forum for the exchange of latest advances and technical information, dissemination of new research developments in the areas of hydrogen production and usage, and debate involving the future directions and priorities in the hydrogen economy for a sustainable future. The conference will have particular value and interest to researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners who are working in the field of hydrogen production technologies, ranging from policy making and technical development to management and marketing. There will be a particular emphasis placed on thermochemical and nuclear-based hydrogen production.



The conference will be held at the Grand Hotel Italia,, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. ICH2P-2019 together with SME-2019 is organized by: AIIR – Transylvania-Cluj Branch,  ICSI Rm. Valcea and the Romanian Association for Hydrogen Energy.

Collocated event:
2. 3rd International Conference on Research, Innovation and Commercialisation, ICRIC-19.


The ICRIC-19 is a multi-disciplinary international conference on research, innovation and commercialization and will provide a forum for the exchange of the latest technical information, the dissemination of the high-quality results on these issues, the presentation of the new developments and methodologies in these areas, and the debate and shaping of future directions and priorities for better industrial, environmental, energetic and economic sustainability as well as sustainable development for global security. The primary themes of the conference are research, innovation and commercialization not only in engineering and science but also in all other disciplines (e.g. ecology, education, social science, economics, management, medical sciences, political sciences, and information technology). Therefore, papers on related topics are solicited from all relevant disciplinary areas, ranging from current problems, projections, new concepts, new technologies, new methodologies, modelling, experiments, innovation, commercialization, and measurements, to simulations.

FORMAT: The format of the ICRIC-19 will be arranged with the following major elements as general papers presented in oral and poster sessions, keynote papers with invited speakers, and panel discussion and specialized sessions on special topics. There will also be co-located events referring to science and energy, social events and conference tours. High quality papers of archival value will be considered in extended form for publication in various reputable international journals.

SUBMISSION: Initial screening will be based on the abstracts, and the authors should submit their abstracts (max. 2000 chars) through ICH2P-2019 website only, . The authors will select ICRIC-19 topic in the submission section. The abstract should contain the title, names of authors and affiliations. The authors of the papers selected for publication in the conference support journals will be notified by email.


Situated in central-north-western Romania, in the center of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca is a dynamic and vibrant city. The ancient capital of Dacia Porolissensis, Cluj–Napoca was recorded for the first time by the Greek geographer Claudius Ptolemy (AD 85 – 165) some two thousand years ago. It became a municipality during the reign of Emperor Hadrian (AD 117 – 138) under the name of Municipium Aelium Hadrianum Napoca and later to a colony, around AD 180 under Marcus Aurelius or Commodus. Today, the Municipality of Cluj-Napoca is the spiritual and economic capital of Transylvania as well as an influential academic and medical center; the heart of multiculturalism and diversity, Cluj-Napoca is the city where the past, present and future have toiled identity and local specificities.
