The 2017 Sofia Science Festival, the seventh annual such event, opened on May 11 and continues until May 14.
The opening presentation at the festival is by Nobel prize winner Professor Dan Schechtman of Israel, on the topic of “technological entrepreneurship – key to world peace and prosperity”.
That is followed a presentation entitled “the science in…a bottle of whisky?”, the story of how a firm in Scotland has been working together with historians, researchers and technology experts to bring back to life legendary Scottish whisky distilleries from the 19th century.
At this year’s festival, being held at Sofia Tech Park, there are more than 65 events, several in English, for all ages. Admission to most events is free but for a few there is an entrance fee of five leva.
