Our mission

From the outset, the botanic garden in Cluj has clearly defined its purpose as an institution “as much as possible in the service of science, education and general knowledge” (Alexandru Borza, director 1919-1947). These three objectives (research, teaching, education) are still the pillars on which any academic botanic garden is founded.

Our main scientific mission is to understand and document the diversity of plants and their uses, bringing the necessary expertise to biodiversity conservation actions. Thus, A. Borza Botanic Garden has established itself over time as an important national and international landmark of knowledge in the field of plant research.

Living plants collections, the herbarium, seed collection and scientific publications gathered in a library have been maintained for more than 100 years. Through a happy and unique combination, all these constitute the basic tools that support our activity.
