Research Team: all members of the Department of Old Bulgarian Literature

The project is based on previous Bulgarian-Swedish initiatives and in particular - "Computer processing of Slavic manuscripts" (2005-2007), as a result of which about 50 Slavic manuscripts were discovered and described in Sweden. The current project expands the base for cooperation between the two countries to include the University of Uppsala, with Prof. Ingrid Meyer as a participant. The expected results are the construction of an Internet portal for Paleoslavistics, which includes both sources and bibliography. The reference apparatus includes thesauri and terminological dictionaries in Bulgarian, English and Swedish. In this sense, the project will contribute to the development of Bulgarian disciplines at the two universities - in Gothenburg and Uppsala.

Joint project with the universities of Gothenburg and Uppsala, Sweden
