The OS University project dates back to 2015 and starts with the solid research of Hristian Daskalov, currently a Project lead. A proof-of-concept phase was initiated, along with corporate partners from Bulgarian industry and software development sectors, resulting in early versions of system's architecture and design.
Later the same year OS University research project was initiated at the Faculty of Management within the Technical University of Sofia, resulting in scientific publications on the subject, published in Bulgaria, Latvia, and the Czech Republic.
In 2016, OS University was announced among the TOP 10 social innovation ideas globally, in competition with 400 technology concepts and 130+ project proposals as part of the Living Progress Challenge of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The project received positive reviews and engaged in expanding its partnership network under programs for support of young entrepreneurs, led by the Ministry of Economy and the Open Society Institute, as well as through Sofia Business School.
