In cooperation with the Bulgarian institute SCAS and several other European partners (Alinari from Italy, the Karl-Franzens-Universität from Austria, the European Research Centre for Book and Paper Conservation-Restoration in Austria and the Central Library of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) a grant is given to realise  a project (BBinding)  which develops course material for the vocational training in the field of preservation of books and paper, photos and archives; this all in the framework of the LLP Project (LeonardoDaVinci-Transfer Of Innovation).
