ERC Newsletter “ideas” focuses on Bulgaria and together with Prof. Ignatov’s interview (Minister of Research, Education and Youth) presents Prof. Ivaylo Znepolski’s research supported by the Advanced Scholar Scheme.
ERC Advanced grantee Prof. Ivaylo Znepolski, Bulgarian former Culture Minister (1993-1995), specialises in the history of communism.
