SRS is a summer research school for high achieving teenagers, with a pronounced interest in the fields of mathematics, informatics and ICT. It combines the best practices from leading programs for high school students in the field such as RSI (organized by CEE and MIT) with the unique opportunities of a dynamic small-scale learning environment. The students will work with scientific mentors, traditionally stemming from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and guests from international research universities in the fields of mathematics and informatics. Each student will focus on a personal research topic, coming from challenging but viable field such as Combinatorics, Number Theory, Computing, Modeling and others.The program includes lectures on advanced scientific problems and modern technologies, meetings with representatives of the industry and different academic institutions, soft skills training and discussions on important issues such as ethics in science, responsible research and innovation.
