Structure of the Activity:

The high calibre of IMI’s researchers assures a lasting collaboration (projects, long-term bilateral and multilateral scientific cooperation agreements, educational programmes, scientific events, exchange of visits) with than 40 research centres and universities in Europe and the world - in Austria, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Norway, Pakistan, Russia, Serbia, Sweden, Ukraine, UK, etc. Many recent activities have focused on collaboration with industrial stakeholders. Since 2012 the IMI is a member of the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI).

IMI has a serious experience in successful participation and coordination of projects, including FP6, FP7, Horizon 2020, LLP, CIP and other EC programs, regional and trans-border ones, as well as research projects supported by the Bulgarian National Science Fund in harmony with the priorities of the European and National Research and Development Strategy.
