The Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science and the EIT are organising an ‘EIT Awareness Day’ in Sofia to raise awareness of the EIT Community, its activities and, in particular, of cooperation opportunities among relevant national stakeholders.
At this conference, the EIT Community will provide an introduction to its activities as well as specific information on potential areas for cooperation with interested national stakeholders. Organisations and individuals from all sides of the Knowledge Triangle (business, education and research) are invited to participate at the event and contribute to the discussions.
Speakers will include Petar Nikolov-Zikov, Vice-Minister of Education and Science of Bulgaria; Antoaneta Angelova-Krasteva, Director at European Commission Directorate General for Education and Culture; and Martin Kern, EIT Interim Director.
At the end of the meeting, national stakeholders will have the opportunity for bilateral discussions with representatives of the six Innovation Communities in climate, digital, health, energy, food and raw materials.
We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
