ENGAGE.EU early-stage researchers conference in Sofia, Bulgaria

Date: Time: 09:00 Location: Sofia, Bulgaria

The University of National and World Economy in Sofia, Bulgaria will host the first ENGAGE.EU conference.

The major goal of the conference is to bring together early-stage researchers and young scholars affiliated to ENGAGE.EU partner institutions - e.g. junior faculty members, post-docs, and PhD students. It is expected to foster communication and future collaboration between representatives of the target groups from all partner universities. Participants will have opportunities to meet in person or online and to present their work-in-progress or pieces of finished research work at an international forum with a predominant participation of peers. There are no limits on the type of research work to be presented, including conceptual, empirical, or position papers. After the Conference, the final versions of submitted papers will be published in Conference Proceedings or other possible channels.

There is no fee for participants affiliated with the ENGAGE.EU partners (faculty members or students). Funds to support travel and accommodation costs, for a limited number of participants, are available upon successful application. Coffee/tea, buffet lunch and dinner will be provided by UNWE.
