THE STATE WILL FINANCE TRAINING FOR DIGITAL SKILLS

dd.mm.2023

Against the backdrop of signals from the business community in Bulgaria regarding the critically low level of digital skills among Bulgarians and the dramatic mismatch with the labor market needs, the caretaker government has approved the possibility of funding digital and other key competencies. For the first time, training for acquiring a specific level of digital competence will be funded.

Employed individuals, unemployed individuals, and economically inactive individuals will be eligible to receive training vouchers for acquiring first, second, and third levels of professional qualification, digital skills, and other key competencies.

This is outlined in a draft resolution by the Council of Ministers, which was approved by the government today. The document sets out the conditions and procedures for providing training vouchers under the Human Resources Development Program (HRDP) 2021-2027, the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP), and the Just Transition Fund (JTF).

The resolution further develops and expands the accumulated experience with voucher-based training for employed and unemployed individuals under projects funded by the Human Resources Development Operational Program during the period 2009-2020, as clarified by the cabinet’s press center.

For the first time, training for acquiring basic, intermediate, advanced, and highly specialized levels of digital competence will be funded. The training vouchers will be provided by the Employment Agency to unemployed, inactive, and employed individuals who represent the target groups under the HRDP, NRRP, and JTF. They will be able to apply for the vouchers through the agency’s electronic platform.

The voucher will be a digital document with a unique identification code that allows for individualization and tracking. The Employment Agency will continue to maintain a public register of the issued vouchers on its website.

Individuals who receive vouchers will have the right to choose the type and provider of the training. The value of the vouchers depends on the type and duration of the courses. For example, for acquiring the first level of professional qualification, it will be 660 BGN for training of no less than 300 instructional hours. For the second level of professional qualification, the voucher will be worth 1320 BGN for no less than 660 instructional hours, and for the third level, it will be 1980 BGN for 960 instructional hours.

INFINEON WILL TRAIN DOCTORAL STUDENTS AT THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY IN SOFIA

11.05.2023 |

  German chip manufacturer Infineon is entering into a partnership with the Technical University – Sofia, to train doctoral students through its Austrian subsidiary. This initiative is part of the European IPCEI project in microelectronics, which brings together companies and research organizations from different countries with the ultimate goal of strengthening the technological capacity of the industry in the EU.

The next stage in this collaboration is to expand the training opportunities to include master’s students as well. For Bulgarian students, this represents an opportunity to work on scientific projects in one of the world’s largest chip companies. The aim of IPCEI is to develop the capacity of the entire region, as stated by Sabine Herlitschka, CEO of Infineon Austria, during the program presentation at the Technical University.

The IPCEI project offers various opportunities for master’s and doctoral students. They can stay at the university in Bulgaria but also receive a monthly stipend for a period of 3 to 4 years, explained Veneta Ivanova from Infineon Austria. There are also internship programs available for students, with the duration ranging from summer-only to 6 to 12 months, depending on the research topic.

According to Sabine Herlitschka, CEO of Infineon Austria, Bulgaria has strong traditions and know-how in technologies, making it an ideal environment for such investments. She mentioned that Sofia is just an hour and a half away by plane from Vienna, which has also been a significant advantage in choosing the Technical University as a partner in this endeavor. She added that the best innovation ecosystem consists of research organizations, universities, and companies. The closer they collaborate, the faster they can deliver the best possible technologies and products to customers and consumers. Therefore, she emphasized the need to strengthen cooperation not only in Austria but throughout Europe.

Infineon Austria is part of the German company Infineon Technologies, which ranks among the top 20 global chip manufacturers. The group has produced 9.4 billion chips in the past year. The Austrian division had a turnover of 5.2 billion euros and nearly 5,500 employees for the previous year, accounting for approximately 10% of the group’s results.

Watch the free online seminar “Getting Started with Python (Jupyter Notebook)” on April 27, 2023 (Thursday) at 19:00 with speaker Georgi Hristov.

About the seminar

The workshop aims to address the key considerations in the creation of classification models. It will describe the basic steps in creating a model, as well as the risk factors that any beginner (and not only) should be careful of. At the end of the workshop, a simple classification model will be created in Python (Jupyter Notebook) that demonstrates the issues described.

About the lecturer

Georgi Hristov

Georgi is an ML enthusiast with a strong interest in scientific work. He graduated in finance and accounting and it wasn’t long before he discovered his passion for machine learning, and programming. He is currently a PhD student and lecturer, and is looking into the various ways in which neuroevolution (the combination of neural networks and genetic algorithms) can be applied for improved risk management in commercial banks. He is also interested in the creation of macroeconomic models and simulations. Works mainly with Python.
