On 16 June 2012, Karamihaylova auditorium at the Faculty of Physics of Sofia University hosted a training seminar organized by the Sofia section of WiN Bulgaria for the teachers of physics from Sofia. The seminar was held with the support of the Union of physicists in Bulgaria. In his opening speech the chairman of the Sofia branch of the Union, prof. T. Mishonov, emphasized on the symbolic location of the meeting - the auditorium named after the first woman employed as a professor at Sofia University and founder of the nuclear physics department there.
The workshop was moderated by Albena Georgieva who underlined the successful involvement of women in nuclear technologies related activities and made a special focus on the needs to develop new specialists for these specific positions.
WIN Bulgaria members made presentations on:
- Current status of global nuclear power (Boyka Papazova)
- Nuclear technologies (Albena Stoyanova)
- Licensing aspects of new nuclear construction (Vera Sabinova)
- Radiation monitoring (Radka Ivanova - guest speaker from the Kozloduy section of WiN Bulgaria)
Additional questions were discussed about the possibilities for career development at Kozloduy NPP, as well as the potential for holding similar meetings and seminars in the future.
The participants appreciated the useful update on the nuclear topics and expressed their wishes to expand the cooperation with WiN Bulgaria.
