Researcher Night is a Marie Curie action of the European Commission taking place each year in the last week of September. It brings research closer to the general public as research is funded by taxes. In Romania it takes place in different cities, including Bucharest. The "Ion Mincu" University of Architecture and Urbanism was represented by Marie Curie alumna Maria Bostenaru Dan, who also networked with the chapter.

The "Ion Mincu" University of Architecture and Urbanism was represented for a second year by Marie Curie alumna Maria Bostenaru Dan and her colleague Constantin Hostiuc. This year they represented the Faculty of Urbanism and the Doctoral School respectively. The booth featured again an architecture model of a neighbourhood in Bucharest, this year Militari neighbourhood done by students in a Kevin Lynch analysis. Other than that books from recent years were presented, including the book on the 1755 Lisbon earthquake accompanied by a model as well. On the walls the travelling exhibition of the COST RELY (Renewable energy and landscape quality) itinerary exhibition was shown a second time at a Marie Curie Romanian chapter action, as two other members also deal with renewable energy as we presented in another Le Notre report. The Marie Curie fellows were also on stage advising the youth on how it is a future research career. The organiser of Researcher Night is also a chapter member, and other two members also visited the booth.
The original LE:NOTRE Projects were co-funded by the European Union's Socrates and Lifelong Learning Programmes.
The LE:NOTRE Institute has been established by ECLAS as foundation under Netherlands Law.
