Short history of the Institute


CIDO was established through an initiative of young researchers from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca.


CIDO became CIOS by reorganizing its activity with a focus on the sustainable development of the resources.


CIOS celebrates 5 years of functioning and becomes a member in the coordination group of the stakeholders platform for circular economy (ECESP) from the Economic and Social Committee of the European Commission.


We became 6 years old and we passed through a more extensive process of modernizing our organizational structure and association’s image.
CIOS became IRCEM – Institutul pentru cercetari in economie circulara si mediu.
