The purpose of the Agreement is to assists the University and the Association in the development and implementation of new technologies in the field of machine building , development and integration of robot technologies and advanced CNC manufacturing together with Varna Technical University.

The University and the Association will organizing and conducts pre-graduation and post graduation courses of students and employees of the Association in the field of manufacturing technologies by developing and introducing new manufacturing technologies and software products in the field of metalworking, machine-building and steel construction.

“EIC” association will provides support and participates in joint research projects to develop new environmentally friendly production technologies and software products developed by the students and research institutes by integrating them directly to the production facilities of the members of the Association.

The association will carry out all necessary steps in order to produce , test and protect by patents all joint projects.

Together with that it was agreed that the students will be helped for the production of prototypes and carry out field tests in the facilities of the companies of the Association.

The agreement also offers the opportunity to occupy vacant positions of successfully represented students after graduation.

Subcon Expo 2018 Highlights

The unusually good for the island weather marked the start of Subcon Expo – the biggest engineer exhibition at the United Kingdom. EIC made a brilliant presence, and made direct contacts with the owners and managers of various scale English companies.

The focus of the discussions were a number of EIC achievements, the big opportunities of such an economical structure, which is the industrial cluster, and the smooth logistics organization of the outsourcing projects.

Personally the CEO of EIC – Mr. Deian Tashev – represented the technological capabilities of the cluster, and some of the already finished EIC projects before his future customers. The definite strong interest from the future English contractors has paved the way for the successful cooperation between Bulgaria and UK.
