We cordially invite colleagues and friends to the final dissemination event of the MILIEU H2020 Project – “Women, Disability, and Inclusion – Scientific Excellence in Bulgaria,” which is funded under the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program in the Call H2020-WIDESPREAD-2018-2020 / H2020-WIDESPREAD-2020-5: Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation—Twining.
MILIEU aimsis a project aiming to foster the implementation of implement topics related to gender, disability, and inclusion in the academic development of researchers working at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. As a cooperation between partners from Compultense University in Madrid, the University of Genova, and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the project also aims to stimulate top scientific achievements, with priority given to young scientists, as well as increase the capacity of scientists and employees at the BAS and other Bulgarian academic institutions to attract project funding and foster their scientific development.
We hope that this final event will inspire other colleagues to consider the numerous excellent outcomes we were able to attain during this fascinating three-year project, despite certain institutional challenges and the rapid development of the anti-gender movement that has affected Bulgaria enormously.
