Scientists will use the funds for exploring new ways to prevent and cure patients with COVID-19
 
"Bulgaria is among 10 member countries of the EU which allocated BGN 2.4 million for researching COVID-19”, said the deputy Minister of Education – Karina Angelieva. 
 
The funds were granted by the government and will provide scientists with opportunity to develop new ways of prevention and treatment of COVID-19, as well as monitoring and limitation of its spread. 
 
The duration of the projects is planned to be up to 24 months in the following topics: 
 
1. Medical-biological problems (for the total amount of BGN 1.56 million and between BGN 100 000 and 300 000 for each project, depending the number of participating scientists and organizations) 
 
2. Social, economical and educational aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic (for the total amount of BGN 240 000 and between BGN 30 000 and 60 000 for each project, depending the number of participating scientists and organizations) 
 
Other BGN 600 000 are granted for Bulgarian scientists’ projects for bilateral and international cooperation concerning COVID-19.  
 
"It’s quite important to spread the word that this pandemic we are searching for a cure, together with scientists from many other countries”, continued Angelieva. In her words it’s realistic that the research leads to the development of a vaccine or a cure.
 
All the documents for the allocation of the funds are sent to the Ministry of Finance. 
 
The President of the Bulgarian Academy of Science – Prof. Yulian Revalski added that the initiative is happening in the right time and is a good movement coming from the Executive. 
 
"The COVID-crisis showed us that we need our health workers, but also our scientists”, Revalski pointed out. In his opinion the government knows how important the science is for the development of mankind.
