Forum Science Association

Forum Science (Forum Nauka) is an NGO based in Sofia, Bulgaria, whose mission is to give publicity and an impact platform to people doing science all over the world. It is currently the leading science communication media in Bulgaria. The purpose of our work is to bring science and society closer together. We do this through promoting and supporting the work of different scientific organizations.

Forum Science has ample experience with dissemination, such as: website design and management, social media marketing, and specifically event production for the projects FRESH (Find Researchers Everywhere and SHare) and REFRESH (Relate, Experience, Find Researchers Everywhere and Share) that have successfully brought events to the European Researchers’ Night in Bulgaria for the past 4 years and for 2020 and 2021 we work in K-TRIO 4 and K-TRIO 5 projects (for European Researchers’ Night 2020 and 2021). Forum Science has a large network of communication connections among schools (more than 2000) and municipalities (over 200) and our media services are used by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science for promoting Operational Programmes. 

For 15 years we are achieving our mission through developing activities such as:
