2. Focal points in South Central Bulgaria
The regional RMC for South Central Bulgaria is cituated in Stara Zagora at the Trakia
University – DIITT. The RMC staff made significant efforts since its establishment to make it
well known and used in South Central Region.
For achieving this, were established contacts with governmental institutions, business and
research institutions and organizations, universities, colleges and other high school
organizations in the region. At the beginning, the project team’s members prepared a special
letter with information about the new regional Research Mobility Centre, its main objectives,
functions and services. This letter in electronic variant was sent to all representatives of the
research organizations in South Central region – universities (“Paisij Hilendarski – Plovdiv
and Trakia University – to all faculties), all higher institutes in Plovdiv, research institutes and
colleges.
A special emphasis was put on the communication to researchers’ associations, e.g. the Union
of Scientists in Bulgaria – Stara Zagora Branch and Scientific and the Technical Union in
Bulgaria – Stara Zagora Branch. Close relations were established with the Chamber of
Commerce and Industry – Stara Zagora Branch and the Association of Medical Students in
Stara Zagora. During the preparation of the regional seminar within the ‘Researchers in
Europe’ 2005 Initiative contacts were also made with the regional business organizations,
secondary schools and vocational colleges. The list of focal persons is as follows.

3. Focal points in Eastern Bulgaria
The regional RMC for Eastern Bulgaria is situated in Varna at the Technical University of
Varna and is called Center for International Relations and Mobility (CIRM).
The project team has done a lot of work to popularize the Center. Contacts have been
established with a number of HEIs (universities, colleges and high schools), research
institutes, researchers’ associations, governmental institutions, business organizations in the
region, etc., mentioned in the table below.
All these institutions have been informed about the foundation of a regional RMC for Eastern
Bulgaria in Varna, its objectives, functions and services offered with letters sent by post, fax
or e-mail. They have expressed their interest and willingness to become a part of the national
RMC network and have named their representatives who should participate in the seminars
organized by CIRM.
The regional RMC for Eastern Bulgaria intends to organize two regional seminars – the first
one (on 27.09.2005 at TU-Varna) was part of the information rally within the initiative
“Researchers in Europe’2005”, while the second one is forthcoming in April.

4. Focal points in Northern Bulgaria
The Regional Centre for mobility of researchers for North Bulgaria is located in the city of
Rousse, at the “Angel Kanchev” University of Rousse – Centre for International Cooperation
and Mobility. Since its establishment in 2005 the staff involved carried out promotional
activities in the region to make the Centre known both to the scientific and public community
of the Region.
After the initial contacts made and after mailing the message of the Rector of the University
of Rousse Professor M. Todorov to the relevant scientific units of the North Region of
Bulgaria, the project team was able to elaborate the list of institutions and contact persons
given below, thus preparing itself for the forthcoming regional Seminar.
