After the successful experience of the first EU Industry Day in 2017, the EC is launching a second 'European Industry Day' on 22-23 February 2018.

To accompany the event, CASTRA and key Bulgarian institutions are organising a local event hosted by the EC Representation in Sofia. It takes place as part of 'Industry Week' on 20 February 2018 and is also in line with the priority of competitiveness within the Programme of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (January – June 2018). Stakeholders from the hi-tech sector of industry, research and innovation in Bulgaria and the region are invited to register online to participate in the event.

The cooperation among industry, academia and NGO sectors is identified as a key prerequisite for innovation leading to growth and jobs. In terms of sectors, the event focuses mainly on two of the priority themes within the Smart Specialization Strategy 2014-2020 of Bulgaria, oriented towards the hi-tech industry segments - "ICT" and "Mechatronics and CleanTech".

The event aims to cover:

  • EU funding and the Smart Specialization;

  • Cooperation among Actors in the Sphere of Innovation and Technological Development;

  • Role of Clusters and Tech Parks;

  • Launch of the national debate on the future EU Agenda on Industrial Modernization;

  • Project ideas, cooperation and networking opportunities
