Paying tribute to the memory of scholar Petru Poni represents for us a duty and an acknowledgement of the remarkable contribution that the prestigious chemist professor from Iasi brought to the development of science and education in Romania. The paper brings to everyone's attention the manifestations dedicated to the celebration of 175 years since the birth of the prestigious science man of Iasi, chemist Petru Poni. The cultural event, organized by „Ştefan Procopiu” Museum of Science and Technique within „Moldova” National Museum Complex of Iasi, in partnership with „Petru Poni” Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Romanian Academy, the Faculty of Chemistry - „Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi and the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Protection of the Environment - „Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iasi, enjoyed the participation of a large public, which reunited academicians, researchers, teachers, museographers, as well as pupils attending „Petru Poni” Technological High School, „Petru Poni” Gymnasial School and „Gheorghe Mârzescu” College of Electronics and Telecommunications. The presentation of the life and achievements of a personality, such as Petru Poni, characterizes an evocative process, a civic and historical obligation towards the future generations. The scientific creation of the distinguished chemist professor of Iasi will remain for the Romanian academic space a source of suggestions and challenges for knowledge in general and for the local cultural progress.
