The idea of the Forum was born 14 years ago. It was a wonderful idea which began with mistrust but today it is an excellent Forum for young scientists, declared Assoc. Prof. Dr. Grigorii Vazov. On the occasion of the 15th Anniversary of the Conference he suggested changes in the format of the scientific Forum for making it a place for lots of professional contacts. UNWE has the capacity to do that, said Assoc. Prof. Vazov.

Such Forums help the development of new ideas. I am sure that during the Conference wonderful ideas will also be born, said Prof. Yankulovsky.

This scientific event turned from a Conference in the frameworks of the Faculty to a traditional and significant university Forum, pointed out Assoc. Prof. Dr. Silvia Trifonova, Chairwoman of the Conference Organizing Committee. It was the first Conference of its kind devoted to the young scientists in order to unite them, introduce and make them share their points of view. I am proud that the first participants succeeded to grow in the scientific research field and economic practice, said Assoc. Prof. Trifonova and outlined that the current edition of the Conference had been supported by seven international partners.
