Georgian Technical University will develop cognitive software applications with the latest technologies, and based on this, a new methodology for conducting master classes of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) will be created, which will be an important contribution of Georgia to the development of world science and university education.
The bilateral decision was strengthened by a memorandum signed by the Rector of the Georgian Technical University, Professor Davit Gurgenidze, and the Chairmen of the CERN IPPOG (International Particle Physics Outreach Group), Professors Steven Goldfarb and Pedro Abrum.
Cognitive software applications will be developed at the Center for Nuclear Engineering of the Georgian Technical University, and the software-methodological resource created on their basis will be distributed and introduced in the future at CERN-related universities and educational networks worldwide.
According to the Rector of the Georgian Technical University, Professor Davit Gurgenidze, it is important to further enhance the scientific cooperation between the University and the European Organization for Nuclear Research and fill it with qualitatively new directions. This is a clear confirmation of the fact that CERN highly values the activities of the Georgian Technical University and considers itself as a full-fledged partner.
"It should be noted that the project is supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and personally Minister Mikheil Chkhenkeli. Importantly, another clear confirmation of our university’s successful collaboration with CERN is the signing of today’s memorandum, which aims to create a new methodology for IPPOG masterclasses to ensure maximum involvement of the younger generation. The process will be led by Alexander Sharmazanashvili, Professor at the Georgian Technical University, who is the official representative of Georgia at CERN / IPPOG. Bachelors, masters and doctoral students of the Faculty of Informatics and Management Systems of the University will be actively involved in project together with our researchers. The Center for Nuclear Engineering of the Georgian Technical University has been actively cooperating with CERN/IPPOG collaboration for several years. In addition, our university traditionally hosts CERN masterclasses. IPPOG collaboration and Georgian Technical University have a common goal - to deepen the interest of young people in the world in science, technology, engineering, physics and mathematics, which is facilitated by the presented project.” - stated Rector Davit Gurgenidze.
The Center for Nuclear Engineering of the Georgian Technical University has been actively cooperating with the IPPOG collaboration since 2017, of which Georgia has recently become an official member.
