Enhancing public engagement with research in Bulgaria
In line with the 2020 International Year of Plant Health (IYPH), the EU-funded FRESHER project will raise awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment and boost economic development. It is based in Bulgaria: the country's Academy of Sciences as well as universities, research institutes and associate partners will organise the European Researchers’ Night on this topic. The events will boost public engagement with research and encourage young people to embark on science-related careers. The project will organise a series of events in 25 cities, towns and villages, paying particular attention to tailored messages for underserved audiences such as people with special needs and youth at risk of dropping out of school.
