Specific Support to Georgia: first country visit – STI strategies & challenges

The first fact-finding country visit to Georgia aimed to assess some of the Georgian government’s specific requests for PSF support: specificities of the national science and technological innovation (STI) system, the role of various organisations and stakeholders in STI, and the country’s performance in national and international research and innovation programmes. The PSF experts met the various relevant stakeholders in the country, such as: researchers and research funding grantees, MPs and representatives from relevant ministries and agencies, the Academy of Sciences, Georgia Innovation and Technology Agency and universities, and representatives of business (e.g. Chambers of Commerce) and international organisations (e.g. the World Bank). The expert mission was organised in close collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and the Shota Rustavelli National Science Foundation.
