SCIENCE AND INNOVATIONS IN SUPPORT OF AGRICULTURE
November 30, 2017, Capital Fort, Sofia, Bulgaria

Agriculture in Bulgaria is growing faster especially after the country joined the European Union in 2007, but the sector is still searching that sustainable model which will consolidate and build on the achieved results. Finding it goes through increasing productivity and competitiveness, coping with issues such as labour shortages, attracting young people back to the villages and achieving fair pricing of produce. Integral part of this are innovations which can solve lots of the mentioned challenges.

What are the European Commission's policies for innovations development in the sector and what are the steps Bulgaria has to take in this direction, what are the challenges facing the agricultural business financed with European funds and what is the readiness of science to participate in this process, are only part of the highlights of the forthcoming conference.
