A Glimpse into the Future through Innovations
Friday, 28 October 2016
Achieving a visible change in society used to take years, but today high technologies help for the rapid realization of our ideas. We live in dynamic and rapidly changing conditions and often have to react quickly to the challenges. To cope with them an innovative and unconventional approach, boldness and faith in success are required. Innovators are not afraid to think outside the box; to be curious and to find solutions. That was the goal of "Innovation Camp" that took place in the town of Gabrovo this month. More about the event from Tanya Hristova, Mayor of the Gabrovo Municipality.
"In the spring, president of the Committee of the Regions of the EU, Markku Markkula, met with Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev. The visit was dedicated to innovations, young people and the development of European countries in the context of all relevant policies. That was the time when the idea for organising the Innovation Camp emerged. It is an extremely successful initiative and a platform that brings together people with different professions and interests, having inspirational ideas. They contribute to finding specific solutions with practical application.”
More than 120 participants took part in the forum. In addition to representatives of 18 Bulgarian towns, there were participants from Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Finland, while there were representatives of 18 Bulgarian towns. People of different ages formed 8 working groups, aimed at solving specific problems.
