A total of six youth projects were developed during the innovation camp “Entrepreneurship in the field of cultural and historical heritage in the cross-border region Romania – Bulgaria”, which took place on 21-22 November 2019. in Silistra. Three of them were ranked by a jury chaired by Julia Bakhovski, who has been working in Bucharest for years to get to know and co-operate between Bulgarians and Romanians. These are: “Pelicans on the Danube” – 3rd place, “Cross-Border Future” – 2nd place and “Radetski” – 1st.

The participants in the discussions were assisted by specially selected business consultants, including representatives of the Rotary Club-Silistra and the business community in the city. And before the six teams presented their entrepreneurial projects to the jury, they discussed them with Romanian partners, the Calarasi Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Access Association.
