Market Analysis & Funding for Pharma | Nursing | Immunology | Neuroscience | Cancer | Engineering | Cardiology


The pharmaceutical industry is one of the leading and fastest growing sectors of the Bulgarian economy. Bulgaria was the 28th largest pharmaceutical market in the EU in 2007, accounting for 0.4% of the EU pharmaceutical market (slightly larger than the Slovenian market). Expenses pertaining to specialist therapies are also expected to grow from $201 (€178) in 2015 to more than $225 (€199) per capita within four years. Funding for healthcare in Bulgaria is contributed by compulsory health insurance, administered by the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF). NHIF’s role is to contribute a basic package of health services for the entire population. Germany and France, the largest pharmaceutical markets in the EU, Independently accounted for 18% of the EU market. Between 2005 and 2007, Bulgaria’s consumption of pharmaceutical products raised at an annual average rate of 5.3%, amounting to € 542 million in 2007. Bulgaria’s pharmaceutical expenditure increased at a lower rate than the average EU pharmaceutical consumption, which grew by 6.1% between 2005 and 2007.



The study is based on critical analysis of the statistical data for nurse professionals in Bulgaria and empirical sociological inquiry organized in the period April 2007 – December 2012. Primary information was collected through direct group self-administered questionnaires distributed to 337 nurses – students in baccalaureate and master programs in Healthcare management at the Medical University of Pleven. The most of them were staff nurses (63%) and 37 per cent were nurse managers.  



According to the market study, in Bulgaria, €633,000 has been set aside for the bilateral national fund. Among the target areas for the fund, are children & youth, combating drugs and organized crime, promotion of European values and nuclear energy decommissioning.


The proposed agency for research and innovation under Horizon 2020 will:

Strengthen the EU’s position in science with a dedicated budget of € 24 341 million1.This will provide a boost to top-level research in Europe, including the top European Research Council (ERC). Strengthen industrial leadership in innovation € 17 015 million1. This includes big investment in key technologies, greater access to capital and support for SMEs. Provide € 30 956 million1 to help address big concerns shared by all Europeans such as climate change, developing sustainable transport and mobility, making renewable energy more economical, ensuring food safety and security, or coping with the challenge of an ageing population.


For charities, the average budget spent per charity was €21.5 million, and the median spending was €400,000. Among governmental agencies, the average budget spent was €21.4 million, and their median spending was €1.9 million. In 8 countries, there was no cancer research spending by charitable organizations, while in three countries, there was no spending by governments. In eleven countries, charities spent more amount on cancer research than did governments.
