The project LEAD YP: Leadership and Empowering Approaches for Disadvantaged Young People was implemented with the support of the Youth in Action Programme of the European Union, Action 4.4 – Projects encouraging innovation and quality.
The project partners are: Lead Partner: Center for Innovative Practices – Bulgaria; Project Partner: Regional Voluntary Centre – Romania Project Partner: Turbine of Changes – CroatiaProject Partner: Asitiki Mi Kerdoskopiki Eteria “En Gnosi” – Greece.LEAD YP aimed at contributing to the creation of more and equal opportunities in education and the labour market, the enhancement of social inclusion and solidarity, and the promotion of European cooperation in the youth field using innovative and quality approaches. The project was designed with the objective to go deeper in unravelling the specific problems leading to social exclusion of disadvantaged young people, enhance their opportunities by empowering them to take the lead in their own life, through equipping them with the necessary skills to develop their full potential, increase their self- confidence, and serve as positive role-model for their peers. This objective was achieved by introducing quality approaches in informal education using innovative, integrative, and interactive methods for reaching the target groups, in particular creating the LEAD YP platform for young leaders www.leadyp.eu and organizing and conducting a one-week international summer leadership camp. LEAD YP activities were oriented towards the development of the civic capacity for successful social adaptation and integration of young people with fewer opportunities in the four project countries – Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece and Romania. The working methods were based on the integrated approach for informal education “peers support peers”. We managed to create a strong and sustainable community of 40 young leaders with disadvantaged background from four European countries, equipping them with key competences and skills in order to develop their full potential and become successful members of their society and positive role-models for their peers.

“Follow the Path of Water” is a project aiming to preserve the attractiveness of the fishing area and protect the water resources of the region by implementing a complex innovative and qualitative approach for provision and raising of the awareness about the local natural resources. With the implementation of this project, the access to natural landmarks and the traditions of the fishing area will become easier, which is a necessary condition for the development of the fishing and eco tourism, as well as the tourist activities in general.
For this purpose the following will be created: Interactive map of the region, showing the location of water fountains, useful information for their qualities, routes for reaching them, as well as public information about them, and it will also promote their use from fishermen and tourists; an innovative online-based information system for easier access to the natural landmarks and the traditions of the fishing area; an improved marketing strategy for popularization of the natural resources and the cultural identity of the region and promotion of fishing and eco-tourism. Also, a Microbiological and physicochemical analysis of the water from all fountains will be done for the territory of the municipalities Glavnitsa, Tutrakan and Slivo pole, next to every fountain an information sign will be installed indicating the condition of the spring water and the history of some of the fountains.

Technology transfer usually means the transfer of scientific and technical knowledge from fundamental science through applied research and development activities into the field of production and consumption. The transmission of systematic knowledge from science into production is essential for the technology transfer process. In a narrow, operational sense technology transfer emphasizes on vertical transmission processes through which technological design becomes a real production technology.
