Distinguished experts and colleagues,
Ladies and gentlemen, I am both honoured and delighted to be with you today to participate in the opening of this remarkable InterI’ll not tell you about strategic importance of the Black sea region for the European security, you will find it in the conference volume. I’ll tell you about a great strategic partnership – the partnership between University of Defence from Brno and Land Forces Academy from Sibiu.
I believe that the principle of solidarity and true partnership amongst higher military education institutions is crucial for education and training in all fields that encourage an understanding of global issues. The practice of multilingualism, faculty and students exchange programmes and institutional linkage to promote intellectual and scientific co-operation should be an integral part of all higher European education system.
Now that I underlined the importance of partnerships I will tell you that the Czech University of Defence represents for my academy and for me the best practice in internationalization military institution in European higher education framework.
Now, I’m thinking to prof. Rudolf Urban who planned with us a great partnership and transferred all ideas to the new rector gen. Prykril, who continues and improves this special relationship between our acadeemies. Thank you prof Urban, thank you gen Prykil for the chance and privilege to stay close to you. Great team, big plans!
I’m thinking to prof. Aless Komar, which was an important member of the evaluation team in Romanian national accreditation process in 2010. Prof. Ales Komar, Land Forces Academy was also evaluated by European Universities Association who confirmed the higher degree rank awarded by Romanian Agency of Quality in higher education. Thank you.
I want also to thanks col. Hockner – the dean of management and economic faculty, for the good cooperation regarding the mobilities of students and teachings staff. You opened your faculty and all Romanian students will remember that. I am confident that we will continue our cooperation under the new ERASMUS programme and both universities will, as before, greatly benefit from this experience.
We welcomed your representatives in our annual Knowledge Based Organization International Conference – ISI indexed, we exchanged researchers, teaching staff and students within the ERASMUS programme and all these have helped constructing a common platform to share ideas and create an international military community.
Solidarity, recognition and mutual support, true partnership that equitably serves the interests of the partners and the value of sharing knowledge and know-how, govern relationships among our institutions. Henceforth, partnership, based on common interest, mutual respect and credibility, will most definitely continue. This means for me SMART DEFENCE in educational field.

I congratulate the University of Defence on the organization of this outstanding International Conference and I wish you all — us all — the very best for a most successful meeting.
