Dr. Troy Wiwczaroski, the PROMINENCE Coordinator, has commented on the UE – Varna PROMINENCE team:

I would like to extend to all colleagues in Varna my sincerest and heartfelt gratitude for the way all of the UE - Varna colleagues have worked together with me these past few years. The cooperation that I have enjoyed with each of you has been one of the genuinely most rewarding aspects of my time is coordinator.

I would enjoy very much participating in a project with my UE - Varna colleagues in the future, one that my UE – Varna colleagues coordinated, this time. And that may be something we should explore in the coming months, towards an application to be handed in March 2022. It would also be interesting to work together with other partners UE – Varna already has, or has wanted to cooperate with.
