On July 7, 2021, at 3 pm, the Teaching-Research Scientific Center organized a meeting of the participants of the Doctoral Research Support Project with Professor Willy Hauser (University of Saarland, Germany, applied sciences) in Betania.

The purpose of the meeting was to exchange information and experience in connection with the new results of the organization of high-quality research in the field of interdisciplinary and applied sciences.

 The head of the Teaching-Research Scientific Center Tamaz Marsagishvili spoke about the establishment of the center and state support. The center was founded in 2018. The center organizes a program of support for doctoral studies aimed at improving the quality of education, determining ways and prospects for interaction between education, science and production. On the basis of the cooperation agreement, the research infrastructures of 7 state universities of Georgia, 11 scientific institutes and the LEPL Giorgi Eliava Institute of Bacteriophage, Microbiology and Virology have been united. Research areas are: chemistry-biology, physics-mathematics, engineering-technology, effective control systems. During its existence, the Center's program was used by about 50 doctoral students (this year about 80 doctoral students showed interest) from different cities (Batumi, Tbilisi, Akhaltsikhe, Telavi). The founder of the center is the Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University. Funded by the state.

Prof. Willie Hauser highlighted the relations between Georgia and Germany in the field of education and science. He congratulated Dr. Nino Giorgadze on the successful results of her internship with Dr. Brook at the Energis Drinking Water Laboratory (Saarbrücken) in Germany in October 2019 at the initiative of the Center. Willingness was expressed to promote short-term research internships for Georgian doctoral students in Germany in the future based on the content of doctoral topics.

The doctoral students presented the results of the interdisciplinary research:

  • Ketevan Kandelaki - The results of calculating the efficiency of public transport services in Tbilisi using the method of mathematical statistics;
  • Giorgi Svianadze - Study of the state of realization of traditional principles in the process of remote justice using SPSS computer package and through Chi-Square Tests;
  • Giorgi Mumladze - Results of experimental research in the conditions of joint research infrastructure.
  • Nino Giorgadze - biological methods of water purification, water purification and control mechanisms.

A discussion was held. Vakhtang Kvaratskhelia, Director of the Niko Muskhelishvili Institute of Computational Mathematics of GTU and researches of the same institute Qartlos Kacheishvili and Marine Menteshashvili positively assessed the practical significance of the research conducted in collaboration with the Center, participation in thematic seminars and international conferences, as well as joint articles. The results of the joint work of researchers from different fields and different generations are evident, it is already an experience that allows solving larger-scale problems in the future.

Director of the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Electrochemistry, Grigor Tatishvili, noted that the research space created by the center is a kind of scientific-research cluster, which is a good opportunity to implement new ideas and research projects. As an example, the Joint presentation "PR-technology: the consequences of popularizing the products of ozonizers", presented at the Boston (USA) scientific conference "Fundamental and Applied Research in the Modern World" in February 2021, was named. This unification of researchers from different fields contributes to the popularization of science and the implementation of research results.

The doctoral students thanked the guest - Willie Hauser and the administration of the center for creating an interesting research environment, exchanged wishes, identified the strategic directions of future activities in a question-and-answer mode.
