Nicolae Urs


Myname is Nicolae Urs, and I am vice-dean of the College of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I am interested in everything related to technology. More specifically, I have been studying and researching the way in which public institutions employ new technologies, the changes that the new social networks brought about in communication, the opportunities provided by "big data" and the way in which visualizing statistical data can help understand social trends. I have a PhD in online communication, to which I added an internship in the United States focused on e-government. I teach courses related to e-Government, the use of new technologies, data visualization, and online communication. I am actively involved in public institutions' digitization projects, both at the level of the city of Cluj-Napoca, as well as at a national level; I also coordinated or took part in a number of strategic development plans for municipalities around Romania. I was one of the coordinators of the Digital Transformation Strategy of Cluj-Napoca. I am a member of Code4Romania and co-chair of the Central and Eastern European e|Dem and e|Gov Days, coordinator of the E-government Working Group at NISPAcee, as well as member in the editorial board of two scientific publications.
