Radoslav Rizov from Telelink Business Services presented the long-term vision of TBS, for participation in strategic projects for the European Union, with high innovation, research and development activity.
He drew serious attention to the audience that during the second program period of the European funds, Bulgaria applied for and accordingly absorbed significantly less funds than our neighboring countries, some of which are not even members of the EU.
He presented more projects of the company in the field of education and cyber security, among which:
- VELES EXCELLENCE HUB
- EDIH ZAGORE
At the meeting, the organizations decided that within the third program period of the EF 2021-2027 they will initiate more joint projects and consortia with the local ecosystem at all levels – SMEs, NGOs and individual experts. Everyone was of the opinion that this meeting lays the groundwork for a series of Tech Talks events to be organized periodically in the city.
