In order to continue the presentation of our PLEEC project members we would like to go on by giving you some facts about our scientific partner “Angel Kanchev” University of Ruse.
"Angel Kanchev" University of Ruse is an autonomous state higher school. It was transformed with a Decision of the People's Assembly of 21 June 1995 and is a successor of the higher technical school, established in Ruse on 12.11.1945. Around 10 000 students and doctoral degree students study in state-of-the-art study halls and research laboratories, spread on 67 490 sq m. The teaching staff consists of 480 highly qualified full-time lecturers, of whom 41 professors, 171 associate professors and 282 PhD lecturers.
PLEEC work will be carried out by the Technology Innovation Center: The project benefits from the center´s devotion to research activities and the high qualification of its members in advanced ICT technologies and their implementations. The cooperation in several research and academic projects of the centre tells its own tale.
In the PLEEC project this partner will support in two areas: on the one hand providing transfer of knowledge in energy efficiency at domestic level with experience based on developed Living Labs. On the other hand transferring knowledge about how positive behavior change in domestic energy consumers in the EU can be encouraged. Therefore it is necessary to understand the domestic energy consumers’ attitudes towards the environment and towards ecological behavior (e.g. saving energy) but also to know the constraints on changing behavior.
As you can see – an experienced partner in the field of energy efficiency and due to this an ideal partner to reach PLEEC´s goals! Beside this you can feel the deeply rooted European influences and national spirit if you are visiting this place once!
