Implementation period: 30.09.2019 - 30.12.2023
The newly created infrastructure is distributed among the consortium partners. It consists of 4 bases with 15 laboratories built and equipped in them. The research activities in the laboratories are grouped in 6 work packages: WP 1 Innovative solutions in robotics and automation, WP2 Biomechatronic systems, WP3 Intelligent environments, processes and technologies in mechatronics, WP4 New methods and means for control and testing of mechatronic elements, WP5 Mathematical provision and modelling of complex systems and processes, WP6 3D modelling, development and introduction of pilot models of elements, details and systems for mechatronics.


Project "The Cross-border Regions Cooperate for Blue Growth-BLUE GROWTH COLLABs"
The project is funded under the Interreg Programme – IPA for Cross-border
Co-operation Bulgaria – Turkey 2014 – 2020
Partners: University “Prof. Dr. Asen Zlatarov ”- Burgas and Thracian University – Edirne
Budget: 2 855 246 Euro
The project envisages the establishment of the Research Centers in Burgas and Edirne, within which the following will be equipped and function: Laboratory for analysis of water pollution with plastic, Laboratory for analysis and modelling of aquatic ecosystems, Laboratory of aquaculture and biotechnology.

The centers will play the role of scientific infrastructure for collaboration of scientists, researchers, local and regional institutions in the development of common approaches, methodologies, models and initiatives for sustainable use and management of the natural resources. The research activities of the centers are combined with their educational function in terms of involving students in research tasks and projects, conducting information campaigns and working with local communities to form environmentally responsible behavior.


Project “Clean technologies for a sustainable environment - water, waste, energy for a circular economy”
The project is funded under the Operational programme “Science and education for smart growth 2014-2020”
Partners: Lead beneficiary Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, PB2 CleanTech Foundation, PB3 Institute of physicochemistry, PB4 Institute of microbiology, PB5 University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, PB6 University “Prof. Dr. Asen Zlatarov ”- Burgas, PB7 Institute of organic chemistry with center of phytochemistry-Sofia, PB8 University of Forestry, Sofia
Implementation period: 30.03.2018- 30.11.2023
Budget: 12 101 218.30 Euro
The project is focused on building an effectively functioning infrastructure on modular principles in the field of 1/ Control, purification, water management; 2/ Treatment, recycling, recovery and disposal of solid waste; 3/ Realization of energy and resource efficient economy by obtaining renewable and alternative sources of energy, materials and resources; 4/ Stimulating the innovations in the technologies for sustainable environment and circular economy 5/ Development and realization of the entrepreneurship of the young specialists in the above directions.
Center for Competence will conduct cutting-edge research into the creation of products, services and clean technologies with high resource and energy efficiency and significant economic, social and environmental added value.
