PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS (PPP) FOR THE PREPARATION OF LARGE INVESTMENT PROJECTS - EXAMPLES FROM FRANCE AND BULGARIA
PROF. EMILE NIXCOLAS KARAILIEV, PhD

Abstract: The use of the PPP business model to design, build and deliver infrastructure around the world has grown significantly in recent decades.
Joint co-consortium projects launched in 2015, such as the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the Inter-American Development Bank (IaDB), the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), and the World Bank Group evidence and role models for the role and importance of PPPs, serving the needs of both governments and practitioners, filling the gap in the sound knowledge of the public-private partnerships' investment credibility.
PPPs are involved in a wide range of social and economic infrastructure projects. However, they are mainly used for the construction and operation of hospitals, schools, prisons, roads, bridges and tunnels, light rail networks, air traffic control systems and water and sewage installations.
For the European Commission, the term PPP is not defined at Community level. In general, it refers to forms of cooperation between public authorities and businesses that aim to secure the financing, construction, renovation, management and maintenance of service delivery infrastructure.
For the European Investment Bank, PPP is a generic term for the relationship between the private sector and public authorities, often with the aim of introducing private sector resources and/or expertise to assist in the presentation and provision of public sector assets and services. Thus, the term PPP is used to describe a wide variety of working agreements, from free, informal and strategic partnerships, to design, construction, financing and operation (DBFO) service contracts and formal joint ventures.
Standard & Poor’s definition of a PPP is any medium- to long-term relationship between the public and private sectors involving the sharing of risks and rewards of multi-sector skills, expertise and finance to deliver desired policy outcomes.
The report provides examples of PPPs for successful large investment projects in France and Bulgaria.




ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND BUSINESS PLANNING OF STARTING COMPANIES FOR THE EXPLOITATION AND COMMERCIALIZATION OF RESEARCH RESULTS
PROF. KOSTADIN KOSTADINOV, PhD

Abstract: The role of academic science as a source of knowledge and innovation is analyzed. The scientist is ‘considered’ in his roles as a fundamental element in this science, but also its representative in society. Attention is paid to the place and role of academic teams in the knowledge - education - business triangle, as well as the driving forces within it. As a result, some characteristic points and principles of academic science in a knowledge-based society are highlighted, with an emphasis on the three related elements. They are the main functional cells that generate, implement and exploit innovation. Therefore, all three countries benefit from their cooperation.
(1) Science focuses on the practical application of research, as well as on financial provision and feedback from industry, which invariably enhances the potential of creative potential. (2) Education takes on a new form, the process of learning is greatly facilitated, it is materialized, and every level of the educational process is upgraded with practical orientation. (3) Businesses have the opportunity to receive, on request, the necessary research, technology, economic analysis and solutions, as well as well-trained and trained specialists.
Therefore, the digital economy is based on the presence of many similar equilateral triangles that cover industry, cluster or industry, start-ups academic companies, as well as the relevant scientific industries and universities, providing the necessary training.




A PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO TREATMENT OF NEOPLASTIC LUNG DISEASES AND QUALITY OF LIVING – IN VIEW OF A THORACIC SURGEON
PROF. Dr. DANAIL PETROV, DOCTOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES, FETCS, FEBTS

Abstract: Personalized medicine is a relatively new method for the treatment and prevention of diseases that takes into account the individual variability of genes, the environment and the lifestyle for each person. This is achieved through individual genetic testing and targeted therapy in established alterations, as well as thе processing of large amounts of data through supercomputing and artificial intelligence, including electronic health records.
Lung cancer is one of the most common primary oncology sites with highest mortality. Evolutionary and revolutionary changes in treatment strategies for non-small cell lung cancer are reviewed. It is among the tumors with the highest number of established genetic mutations that stimulate tumor growth and are therapeutic targets for targeted therapy. On the other hand, the presence of protein expression is the basis for personalized immunotherapy in these cases. The advantages of these innovative therapies and their integration into the complex treatment of non-small cell lung cancer are presented.
