Eleven scholars from four Bulgarian scientific institutions are the core of the project LABedia: Late Antique Balkans Encyclopedia, 4th century.

The main objective of the project is to increase the presence of Bulgarian scholars (established and young scholars, postdoctoral students, doctoral students) in the international scientific space through the formation and free distribution of new scientific knowledge about the social, political, religious and cultural processes taking place in the Balkans during the 4th c.

The project activities are organized in two main groups – creation of online encyclopedia about Late Antiquity on the Balkans (LABedia) and establishing a scientific network for the study of Late Antiquity on the Balkans (Late Antique Balkans).

Through the creation of the online encyclopedia LABedia in Bulgarian and English we aim to increase the international visibility of scientific production, to support the research of regionational and national importance, to increase the involvement of young scholars and postdoctoral students in the scientific dialogue at both national and international level, and to stimulate and expande the international scientific cooperation.
