She took part in local events, organized by Varna University of Economics, Burgas Digital ICT cluster and Stara Zagora Regional Economic Development Agency on issues related to regional economic development, funding opportunities under EU Structural Funds and Framework Program Horizon Europe 2021-2027 and the role of innovation. She met there with key local actors in the NGO sector to discuss opportunities for partnership in the EU context. Ms. Panayotova discussed the good practice model of NGO Organization Drom and the new initiatives held in Vidin, including the access to housing project, funded by Open Society Foundation and the Helsinki Shop, funded by Helsinki Deaconess Institute and Emmaus Helsinki from Finland.
