From April 10 to 13, 2023, the 51st national conference on physics education will be held in Sofia with the theme: “Education and scientific research in physics – a factor for sustainable development”.
The topic of the forum is directly related to the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development, announced the Union of Physicists in Bulgaria, which is co-organizer of the event together with the Ministry of Education and Science, Eureka Foundation and the Institute for Climate, Atmospheric and Water Studies.
The formation of skills for the establishment of sustainable development of society is an interdisciplinary problem in which all natural and social sciences participate. We will look for links between physics and astronomy education with chemistry, biology, mathematics, informatics and information technologies, geography and history both in compulsory education and in non-formal education – project learning, links between education and institutions, etc.

The UN emphasizes that “basic sciences and emerging technologies meet the needs of humanity by providing access to information, enhancing the health and well-being of individuals, communities and societies”.
Fundamental research in physics
The role of fundamental research in physics in the general development of the country and in education, their connection with applied physics, the growth of highly qualified scientists capable of bringing world results and technologies, are factors for the sustainable development of Bulgaria and are the subject of analysis at the conference.
For the upward development of the economy, applied research in various fields of physics is key, the organizers of the forum note.
