The cooperation between Bulgaria and Romania in the field of science and culture was discussed at a meeting in BAS by the President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Prof. Julian Revalski, full member of the Academy, and the Ambassador of Romania to Bulgaria, H.E. Ion Gâlea. The academies of sciences of the two countries have been linked since their inception – in 1866, the Romanian Academy was established, and three years later, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences was founded in the city of Braila. Scientists from both academies work together on scientific projects, with a total number of projects expected to exceed 40 in 2020.
