PROJECT BG05M2OP001-1.001-0008 | NATIONAL CENTER OF MECHATRONICS AND CLEAN TECHNOLOGIES

The main part of the scientific potential of the country in the M&CT area is concentrated in the partner institutions. Nevertheless, there are still a lot of staff problems, the main ones being the low relative part of young researchers and the necessity of increasing the qualification in definite fields where the country is relatively low-developed.

In spite of the high qualification of the members of the scientific team in the respective thematic subfields, it should be improved with a view to manipulate with the new unique technique planned to be purchased.

In the process of Center development it is foreseen to promote its research staff with a view to providing and maintaining a critical mass of scientists. To this purpose  young specialists and  prominent scientists will be looked for. Particularly in the second case, Bulgarian scientists working abroad will be contacted, because the possibility of using mother language is one of the factors of significance in the choice of workplace.
