     AGIR's permanent actions carried out under the framework program for 2014-2017 approached in the last two years the current problems of our society. Events and actions were re ected mostly in our “Engineering Universe” bimonthly publication. The period to which we refer is marked by the celebration of 25 years since the AGIR was reestablished.
The program of actions carried out by subsidiary branches, societies and AGIR circles mainly aimed the development and diversi cation of speci c activities in order to attract new members, develop collaborative relationships, organize scienti c, technical, cultural and artistic activities, or had a commemorative and anniversary character. Technical and scienti c events play an important part in the work of the association, taking into account their impact, including the one in public space. Important scienti c events attracted a higher number of participants compared to previous years: the 10th edition of “Technological progress - A Research Outcome”, the 9th edition of “Education - essential component of environmental policy”, conference World Water Day, the 21st edition of AGIR Prize, awarded on the occasion of Engineer Day celebration.
Also, AGIR branches have been organizers and co-organizers of several homage and anniversary events. Among the conferences and international symposia we can mention: Scienti c Symposium of Romanian Engineers Abroad - SINGRO 2014, the 15th edition of National Conference “Professor Dorin Paul - founder of Romanian hydropower”, from Sebes, International Student Symposium “ELStud” and “Hard & Soft” International Sudent Competition, from Suceava, the 3rd International Conference on Polymers Processing Engineering from Galati, International Conference on Electronics, Computer Science and Arti cial Intelligence.
