Bianca Muntean is the Cluster Manager of Transilvania IT by ARIES T and the Executive Director of the Romanian Association of Software and Electronic Industry – Transilvania Branch. She is also the founder and vice-president of Transilvania Creative Cluster. She is known as a “bridger” for creating unique connections between fields apparently without any connection between them, thus creating projects and contexts which have brought Cluj in European attention as good practice. She is the recipient of the Innovation Luminary Award in 2017 as the young innovation role model for dynamic, pragmatic hands-on OI2 bridgership in Cluj, in the OI 2.0 event of the European Commission.
She is constantly promoting and supporting innovation, thus, in October 2018 Bianca and her team organized the second edition of Innovation Camp in Cluj-Napoca, which gathered together experts who brought up policy challenges related to innovation in the context of Romanian EU Presidency 2019, allowing for better citizens’ inclusion in the creation of new markets, products and services in the framework of the Digital Single Market strategy; respectively – co-creating innovative public services, co-creating change agents for a transition to urban sustainable transformations, co-creating solutions using technology in the public administration.
