RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES AND THIRD GENERATION UNIVERSITY
Languages of publication
Since the beginning of the 21st century, entrepreneurs are able to use the innovations at the universities in order to set up their own business. That collaboration is part of the concept of the “Third Generation University”. The aim of this paper is to outline some possibilities for innovative business development in the Ruse region, Bulgaria that are aimed at supporting technostarters who use biomass for energy production. It describes the need of renewable energy sources in EU context, gives some arguments in university support to entrepreneurs and describes an example of the collaboration of Ruse University with a company that uses biomass for energy production.
