Bulgarian Engineering Teacher Programme



Zornitsa Zaharieva (CERN), Roman Zahariev Zahariev (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BG)), Svezhina Dimitrova (A), Jeff Wiener (CERN)

The Bulgarian Engineering Teacher Programme 2019 will take place from 29 September - 5 October 2019. Lectures, on-site visits, exhibitions, and hands-on workshops will introduce its participants to 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 ...
