In Romania, the research and development units are the following: national institutes for research, development and innovation which, for the majority, are coordinated by the Ministry of Education and Research; research centres within the universities; research institutes under the Romanian Academy's coordination; institutes under the coordination of other Ministries such as the Ministry of Economy, or the Ministry of Agriculture; institutes organized as commercial companies; and SMEs. The financial instruments used by the Ministry of Education and Research to finance the research activities are: Grants, National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation, Core programmes, Sectoral Plans and INFRATECH Programme. These programmes are open for all the certificated research units (public or private). Very few programmes are coordinated by the Ministry of Education and Research. Coordination of the other programmes is gained, following the competition, by other organisations which function as contracting authorities for the particular programme.
