On 28 September, an international conference was held in Tbilisi to promote cooperation between science and industry with joint priorities for research and innovation in Georgia. Wolfgang Polt, Mag. Dr. Christian Hartmann and Mag.  Enikö Linshalm from institute POLICIES, who are working on identifying scientific priorities in Georgia as part of an EU twinning project to bridge the gap between research and industry, were also present.

The conference was attended by more than 350 representatives of various ministries, research institutions, universities, associations and companies from different sectors and regions of Georgia, as well as representatives of the European Union and the Austrian, German and Latvian embassies.

Discussion on priorities

During the event, both functional and thematic priorities that are important for cooperation between science and industry were presented and reflected upon. In addition, views were exchanged on how the priorities can best be realised. The conference is the final step in defining the scientific priorities. In addition, the participants also discussed the development of an online matchmaking platform to promote communication between science and business people.
