For another year, IBS won a competition for basic research funded by National Science Fund. The project theme is „Development and implementation of a model for assessing the innovation potential of global value chains as a basis for increasing regional competitiveness“. The project leader is assoc. prof. Daniela Ventsislavova Georgieva. The project is funded with contract No КП-06-Н55/8 from 16.11.2021. The project analyses the phenomenon of global value chains with the aim of developing and testing a Model for assessing their innovation potential. Global value chains attract the attention of both the academic community and the political level as a factor for economic transformation and growth of local economies. Combined with the foreign investment flow, they provide a channel for dissemination of technological knowledge, entrepreneurial culture and innovation capacity, changing the profile of related economic sectors and regions in which they are concentrated.
Project members are professors and associate professors from IBS as well as Ph.D. students and students. For the purposes of the project implementation Assoc. Prof. Vita Juknevičienė, Ph.D. (from Šiauliai Academy, Vilnius University, Lithuania) will be valuable part of the team. International Business School has a long tradition and practice of implementing successful research projects with prominent experts from the country and abroad. On this basis, as well as on the basis of good practices from Bulgaria and Lithuania, the global value chains in the two countries will be analyzed based on the competitiveness of the regions in which the companies involved are located.
