    Sofia, Bulgaia: First BRiDGE Training for Refugee Researchers “Career Development And Social Integration For Refugee Researchers”

    The first BRiDGE training for Refugee Researchers will be held in Sofia (Bulgaria) on 27 November 2018 by the EURAXESS BHO at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski". It is designed as a one-day training devoted to two courses “ERA Labour Market” and “Foster Your Employability and Integrate Better in the Society” (agenda). The training applied a practical approach and was held in English, while the expenses of the participants (travel and accommodation costs) were covered by the host. The evaluation of the training course is exceptionally promising, especially concerning the performance and presenation skills of trainers, the learning outcomes and the overall rating of the course. The lesson is learnt and we are robustly preparing for the next event.
