Innovation.bg has been ARC Fund’s flagship initiative since 2004. It encompasses the Innovation.bg report, the National Innovation Forum and the Innovative Enterprise of the Year contest.
- The Innovation.bg report provides annual assessments of the Bulgarian economy’s innovation performance and of the innovation system’s current status and development prospects. The main theme of Innovation.bg 2021 is “Building Innovation Recovery and Resilience in Bulgaria”. The report analyses the policy of the Bulgarian government for supporting competitive businesses.
- The National Innovation Forum showcases the performance of top Bulgarian innovative companies. In its 2021 virtual edition, the Forum gathered more than 270 representatives of the policy, research and business communities to share views on Bulgaria’s capacity for recovery and resilience through innovation over the second year in a row, marked by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The Innovative Enterprise of the Year contest acknowledges innovative enterprises, which have developed new or have significantly improved their existing products, services or processes over the last three years. All contest finalists receive ARC Fund’s Excellence in Innovation label.
