Bulgarian Engineering Teacher Programme



Jeff Wiener (CERN), Zornitsa Zaharieva (CERN)

The Bulgarian Engineering Teacher Programme 2016 will take place from 2 - 8 October 2016. Lectures, on-site visits, exhibitions, and hands-on workshops will introduce its participants into cutting-edge particle physics. We hope our participants will go back to Bulgaria as ambassadors, who pass on the subject to our next generation of physicists, engineers, IT specialists ...
