The Ion Ionescu de la Brad University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine (Romanian: Universitatea de Științe Agricole și Medicină Veterinară „Ion Ionescu de la Brad”) is a public university in Iași, Romania. It was named in honor of the scientist Ion Ionescu de la Brad.

History[edit]

In 1842, Ion Ionescu de la Brad set up the first classes for agricultural education in Moldavia, within the Academia Mihăileană.

In 1912, an independent section of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Iași - Department of the Agricultural Sciences - was set up. This event represents the birth certificate of what later (1948) became the Iași Agronomic Institute (renamed, in 1990, as the Ion Ionescu de la Brad University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine).
