Reform Envisages Drastic Cuts for Bulgaria Academy of Sciences

Date: 07.04.2010

The number of the scientific institutes at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) is going to be reduced to 40 from the current 69.

The decision was made Tuesday by the BAS General Assembly during discussions of the academic reform.

The 40 institutes will be divided in 9 thematic units with 8 of them now fully determined. The only one with a question mark so far is the future of the Liberal Arts where the reform met the strongest opposition.

In general, the plan to change BAS triggered great discontent among employees, but except the Liberal Arts, all other sectors managed to reach an agreement.

Each unit will be led by a Consulting Scientific Counsel with a team of scientists from the sector from BAS and universities around the country, representatives of Ministries and State Institutions and European experts.

The 8 units are: 1. Information and Communications Sciences 2. Energy Resources and Effectiveness 3. New Materials and Technologies 4. Biomedicine and Quality of Life 5. Biodiversity, Bioresources and Ecology 6. Climate Changes, Risks and Natural Resources 7. Astronomy, Space Research and Technologies and 8. Social Sciences.
