New Research Centre, Varna

A memorandum for cooperation between Varna municipality and the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) has been signed, to set up a physics laboratory in Varna city.

The European research laboratory will be established in the Observatory and Planetarium at the Black sea capital and will create opportunities for Bulgarian physics students to be trained there.


High technology firms from the city of Varna will also have the opportunity to participate, by producing some of the devices needed for the research being undertaken at the centre.

Over 30 teachers from Varna have already spent a one week visit to the central CERN laboratories and had the opportunity for training there.

Funding for the project with CERN will be allocated from the Varna municipality's 2009 budget said Varna's Deputy Mayor, Kosta Bazitov.
