Marius-Ioan Piso, is participating in the Romanian delegation visiting France, along with officials from the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technological Development, representatives of Romanian research institutes and companies, and the Romanian Embassy representatives in France.

The overall objective of the visit is to intensify the cooperation between Romania and France, as well as developing partnerships in the field of research and technological development.

The Romanian delegation’s agenda includes visits to the Thales Alenia Space and Amplitude Systèmes companies, the latter being the one that offers all ultrafast laser technologies currently available, and a visit to the Institute of Optics (Institut d'Optique) d'Aquitaine.

The delegation will take part also at the exhibition organised on 9 July for Romania's participation in the second edition of Solar Decathlon Europe - SDE, an architecture and applied technology international university competition, where each participating country will be able to present their project during a special day dedicated to them. During the event, Dr. Phys. Marius-Ioan Piso will hold a presentation on Romania's participation in the missions of the European Space Agency (ESA), such as Planck, CLUSTER II, VENUS EXPRESS, GAIA, SOHO, CoRoT, and in the ESA optional programs as a Member State.

Along with Romania's participation in the ESA missions, on the visit’s topics agenda are noted the most important Romanian scientific research, development and innovation projects, such as the high power laser ELI-NP (Extreme Light Infrastructure-Nuclear Physics) or the International Centre for Advanced Studies "Danube River - Danube Delta - Black Sea" (DANUBIUS - RI).
