MILIEU project

The main aim of the MILIEU project is to unlock, promote and support excellent scientific research through the intensive exchange of knowledge and experience aimed at developing research pathways that take into account gender, disability and inclusion.


The operational strategy of MILIEU is to transfer knowledge and skills from the partner countries, Italy and Spain, to raise the level of excellence of the proposing country, Bulgaria.

The University ofGenoa and theUniversidad Complutense de Madrid will collaborate in fostering the path towards scientific excellence of theInstitute of Philosophy and Sociology (IFS), a department of the Bulgarian Academy of Science (BAS), Sofia, Bulgaria, also with actions targeted towards BAS as a whole.

The project will pay special attention to those with less than 4 years of full-time research experience and without a doctoral degree, Early Stage Researchers. Through joint training and research paths, bilateral meetings, short and medium term exchange visits, organisation of conferences and summer schools, the partners will develop new research opportunities and gender-sensitive projects, involving also people with disabilities and promoting their study and research paths.


MILIEU responded to the Horizon 2020 call WIDESPREAD-05-2020, aimed at reducing the gap in research and innovation between high and low performing countries. The project started on 1 January 2021 and has a duration of three years.
