Advanced Training for Women in Scientific Research

Application for SUMMER SCHOOL 2007

The ADVANCE project intends to promote the participation of women in science/research decision making and policy definition by supporting female scientists in acquiring research and career management skills and tools that help them build up their careers.
The project is carried out under the 6th Framework and is coordinated by the Danube University Krems, Austria, in cooperation with five European universities from Poland, Finland, Austria, the Netherlands and Bulgaria.
The core of this project is a Summer School for training female scientists.

Welcome to the [Sofia] weblog, a part of the Kakanien Revisited weblog network. The Team - Dimiter, Assen and Mira - all three PhD students in the Department of History and Theory of Culture at the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" will try to create an image - although sometimes a faceted and incoherent one - of the Bulgarian academia, culture, ongoing events, ideas, realities and virtual spaces. All of you - our readers - are warmheartedly invited to join us in this endeavor with your comments and suggestions.
