Today, in Kutaisi Parliament, the Health Care and Social Issues and the Education, Science and Culture Committees met with NGO HRU and heard the information about the US Embassy University survey results.
The results, concerning improvement of scientific and writing skills of the young academic personnel, were introduced by the Head of HRU, Giorgi Kamkamidze. The project took two years in various Universities of Georgia and outlined some problems. One of the main problems remains publications of scientific works in Georgia and thus, the program aims in facilitation to development of grant applications and concrete articles for young academic personnel and researchers. Another problem is publication of researches by Georgian researches in international magazines due to incompliance with international norms.
The reporter also introduced the recommendations, including on sundry issues: increase of dissertation quality, development of writing skills, higher accent on publication in foreign magazines etc.
MPs gave the positive evaluation to the report. As they stated, the efforts by youth for problem solution are valuable.
As the Chair of Education Committee, Ivane Kiguradze stated, the Government inherited the grave situation. The intention was to eliminate science and important is that now the situation is drastically changed. However, the problems still remain in financing science and HRU activity, facilitating to young academicians, is a model.
The presentation was attended by Kutaisi A. Tsereteli professors and students, Kutaisi Hostpial personnel and young researchers. Today, HRU starts the 2-day training in A. Tsereteli University on “Improvement of Scientific and Writing Skills for Georgian Academic Personnel”.
