Elena Rodica Danescu, PhD in Economics, studied economics at the Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies and international, diplomatic and strategic relations at Paris III University. As a researcher and diplomat, she was initially involved in projects concerning the European integration of the Central and Eastern European countries and their transition to a free market economy, before turning her attention to Economic and Monetary Union, the Luxembourg development model and the achievements of Pierre Werner. The latter subject was the focus of her PhD, submitted in 1998. 

She has been a researcher in the CVCE's European Integration Studies Department since 2009 and is in charge of the ‘Pierre Werner and Europe' research project, based on an exploration of the Werner family archives, which have been opened for the first time for research purposes and to which the CVCE has been granted privileged access.
