The ADIFO name comes from All Direction Flying Object. ADIFO is the first flying VTOL aircraft in the world, able to fly in all directions, under the same aerodynamics characteristics. Actually, ADIFO is a special circular wing with high flight performances. Let's say that is the first "flying saucer" in the world which really flies and it's designed to reach in the near future more and more high performances, pretty close to the performances described in the popular culture related to such kind of aircraft. Partners for future developments are welcome! adifoaircraft.com

Some Google translations from a Romanian article I finally found. No, I don't know the language my self.
Romanian engineer Răzvan Sabie and head of the "Aerodynamics Theoretical" Department at the Aviation Institute in Bucharest, Iosif Ţăposu, have developed a demonstration flight instrument that has the form of a "flying saucer".

...
The prototype of the Romanian disk-shaped aircraft, ADIFO, has a diameter of 1.2 meters and ...

...
The large device, if its development is successful, will have turbojet engines instead of tail fans and will be able to make stable flights at transonic and supersonic speeds.
