INVEST alliance proudly announces the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the University of Agribusiness and Rural Development, in Plovdiv Bulgaria (UARD). As we mark this occasion, we feel deep pride for the milestones UARD has reached as an institution and as a community. Founded by Prof. Eng. Dimitar Kirilov Dimitrov (1952 – 2020) and continued to be managed by current President Ass. Prof. Svetla Dimitrova and Rector Prof. Mariana Ivanova, UARD has become a major pillar in Agribusiness Studies in Bulgaria and Southern Europe, and it is all thanks to their incredible faculty, staff, alumni, and students.

INVEST celebrates this milestone as UARD is our most valuable partner supporting regional sustainability, Agriculture, and Rural Development.

Thank you UARD for being part of the INVEST alliance and building our European history. We also thank our staff and students for taking the time to celebrate this occasion with us. As we look to UARD’s future, we feel part of this future also! Along with UARD, we look forward to continuing to impact more lives and communities.

Here is to the next 30 years!
