"Modern science is characterized by its exceptional complexity. Its development can only be achieved by pooling the scientific potential. These were some of the messages that the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Rumen Radev addressed to the participants in the 10th Conference of the Balkan Physical Union. It was held at Inter Expo Center from 26th to 30th August and gathered over 400 representatives of the scientific circles from the country and abroad.
Being the patron of the international event, President Rumen Radev noted: "The connectivity of the Balkans will be "crippled" if we fail to unite young people through education and science."
