The second TNM within the Agri Base project was held at the Technical University of Varna, Bulgaria, and was connected to the O2- Teaching materials in English for specific purposes with an aspect on agriculture. The project consortium was welcomed by the Rector of TUV, PhD Rosen Nikolov Vasilev who expressed his gratitude realizing the bond within the project consortium and the work of the activities, as well as his enthusiasm for a future cooperation on other projects and academic matters.
The main emphasis during the meeting was put on the creation of the materials, their contents and structure. Basically, the set of these teaching materials will consist of an illustrated dictionary, basic grammar, reading materials with comprehension and writing materials. The materials will be uploaded on the e-platform with a free access, and they will be structured on such a way as to be of use for a broader target group encompassing adult educators, academic staff, farmers, agricultural practitioners and students. The leading institution for this output is CULLL “Vanco Prke” RM, and the planned input of these materials is August 2016.
During the meeting, the project consortium agreed upon a structural re-balance of the TSN, which is expected to be approved. The host institution, TUV Varna organized a tour on the campus laboratories, fascilities and living labs, as well as a visit to the Varna winery where the method of production of the typical Bulgarian coastal wine was shown.
