Iliana Ivanova has been officially appointed as European Commissioner, the Council of the EU confirmed today.

The decision was coordinated with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

In the Commission, the new Bulgarian European Commissioner will be responsible for innovation, scientific research, culture, education and youth. Her department, the same as Gabriel's, was determined by Von der Leyen.

Before her appointment as European Commissioner, the Bulgarian was a member of the European Court of Auditors since 2013. She was a member of the European Parliament between 2009 and 2012, and vice-chairman of the budget control committee.
