Bulgarian-Chinese Center of Shanghai Jiao Tong University at the UNWE
An office of the Bulgarian-Chinese Center of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) for our country was opened at the UNWE.
The Center is established in the frameworks of the Agreement of Cooperation between the UNWE and SJTU and it is part of the initiative One Belt One Road (OBOR). In the Center are included UNWE, St. Climent Ohridsky University of Sofia and Technical University of Sofia but the projects are available to scientists from all universities in the country.
In 2017 an office of the Bulgarian-Chinese Center was opened at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Three years programme of the Center has been adopted and for the first time the Chinese Government has approved a budget for the Center to finance the scientific research programmes in the frameworks of 16+1 Initiative.
