Time: 12:00 CET

Register HERE.

ABOUT
The Joint Innovation Centre of BAS is oraganising a free webinar which will give an opportunity for the participants to acquire basic knowledge on innovative methods for assessment of soil pollution and erosion through on-line discussion on two case studies.
The first case study is related to site assessment for the presence of soil contamination in the area of lignite-burning power plant complex “Schwarze Pumpe” in Saxony, Eastern Germany. For that purpose, the first step is to characterize the natural and anthropogenic factors at the study area (geology, soil types, main pollution sources) and magnetic susceptibility data. The second stage includes description of the major heavy metals emitted by coal burning power plants. The last step includes guidance notes how to interpret the results of field measurements of soil magnetic susceptibility and how to formulate suitable set of analyses and methods for site assessment and characterization in terms of soil quality.
The second case study (based on open case studies/soil/ at the University of British Columbia) - deals with evaluation of soil erosion on sloping agricultural lands in the middle mountains of Nepal. The major tasks will be: characterization of soil quality of sloping agricultural lands in Nepal; acquaintance with the nature of erosion processes; learning how to interpret the results of erosion plot data.

THE LECTURER AND MODERATOR
Professor Diana Jordanova (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) is an internationally recognised researcher in the field of environmental and rock magnetism (h-index 18 in SCOPUS (2018) data base with over 50 publications in peer-reviewed journals).

Date: 29/4/2020 || Time: 16:00 (CET)

Register HERE.

The Research, Education, Innovation & Development Company of the North Aegean Region - ELORIS SA organizes webinar on topic “Digital Cultural Heritage in the 4th Industrial Revolution. Role and Perspectives”.

The development of the cultural heritage sector has reached a crossroads, and has become strategic for the times we are living, especially. A proof is needed that the strategic dimension of cultural heritage is not just a figure of speech. The sector requires the most diverse range of disciplines to perform as a final service or commodity in the eyes of the consumers and indeed only few fields of application require such a vast integration of different skills, -giving to economists a strategic role: The transformation of the AV technologies and the liberation of information from the geolocations create the enabling environment to revive the media market using contents coming from peripheral centers of production. Storytelling in one great ensemble has the possibility to create emotions and thus interact with the audiences in the most fruitful way.

We must ensure that each sectorial contribution is able to perform with resilience and without fear in front of modernization and adaptation to new needs, new rules or new professional approaches and capabilities. We need to challenge the heritage sector by reforming the supply-demand pattern in places with cultural significance and establish resilient ecosystems in European regions at grass roots level. We need to support stakeholders valorize heritage a growth asset and tackle strategic innovation in tourism with new markets and investments. Challenges, the tourism/heritage sector face with existing services, shall be matched with new skills for new jobs addressing the new world order of the EU Audiovisual Media Services Directive/2016, to connect the technology-intense experience with onsite authenticity, let supply-demand converge and combat seasonality.

BalkanMed INNOVA – нова инициатива в подкрепа на предприемачеството и иновациите

Стимулиране на предприемаческото мислене, насърчаване на новаторски стартиращи фирми и създаване на по-привлекателна среда за растежа на малките и средни предприятия - това са амбициозните цели на проект BalkanMed INNOVA, финансиран от ЕФРР и националния бюджет в рамките на програмата „Балкани-Средиземно море 2014-2020“.

Проектът се изпълнява от Единния център за иновации на БАН в партньорство с още пет организации от Гърция, Кипър, Албания и Македония (БЮРМ) и е насочен към четири приоритетни за икономиката области: 1. Туризъм и културно наследство; 2. Агробизнес; 3. Информационни и комуникационни технологии за малки и средни предприятия; 4. Енергия и околна среда.

BalkanMed INNOVA предвижда три фази за постигане на общата цел. Първо ще бъдат проучени и обобщени нуждите, проблемите и неблагоприятните фактори, с които се сблъскват младите предприемачи, опитвайки се да реализират своите идеи.

На базата на този анализ през втората фаза на проекта ще бъдат разработени средства за подпомагане, достъпни за всички, които вече са започнали или планират да започнат своя нов бизнес.

През третата фаза на BalkanMed INNOVA ще бъде предоставена възможност за развитие на десет от най-добрите бизнес идеи, които могат да прераснат в бизнес-планове и да се съревновават за три гранта.

Дейностите по проекта ще бъдат насочени към следните целеви групи: 1) изследователи, учени, професори, центрове за обучение и др. – за създаване на предприемаческа култура, за да могат да комуникират науката и знанието с бизнеса; 2) завършилите училище, дългосрочно безработните и бъдещите предприемачи – за осигуряване на съвременни знания и умения за предприемачество; 3) действащи предприемачи, МСП, обучители – за обучение през целия живот.

Подкрепата, която проектът планира да развие, ще се осъществи чрез новаторската платформа за електронно обучение уеб-училище BalkanMed INNOVA за предприемачество и учене през целия живот. Ще бъдат положени усилия за успешно свързване на образованието и бизнеса и за преодоляване на различията помежду им. Ще бъдат разработени материали във вид на курсове и лекции, които ще се ползват свободно и след приключване на проекта.

Отвъд съвместното обучение, чрез дейностите за електронно наставничество и директните консултации за стартиращи фирми, много млади предприемачи ще успеят да поставят началото на своя нов бизнес до края на проекта.
