Space for Bulgaria
Space for Bulgaria (Space4BG) project is led by Association Tsiolkovsky. It aims to increase the awareness about space technologies and applications of European Space Agency (ESA) as well as to bring basic space science and technology knowledge to hundreds of young Bulgarians. Space4BG project will nurture local innovation in the high-tech sector leveraging ESA’s enormous experience with successful spin-off initiatives, attract young people to pursue careers in the space sector, increase the competitiveness of private and public organizations, create entrepreneurial environment for young Bulgarians to benefit from ESA’s know-how and help set ground for the future smooth integration of Bulgaria as a permanent member of the European Space Agency.
During October, November and December 2016 there were 16 public events, organized in Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Shumen and Blagoevgrad. In the first half of 2017 the live events will continue in the form of demonstration activities for students. Additionally all lectures will be recorded, processed and uploaded to an online video channel with subtitles in Bulgarian. There will be a dedicated section for the videos on the project webpage.
These communication channels will serve as an informative tool for Bulgarian individuals and organizations in regard to the latest developments in European Space Agency’ Programmes and the potential of using European space technology in Earth-based applications.
