RiHEI — Responsible and Impactful Universities as Sustainable Growth and Enterprise Catalysts in Georgia!

Georgia’s com­men­da­ble eco­no­mic stri­des over the past two deca­des have posi­tio­ned it as an upper-midd­le-inco­me coun­try, with impres­si­ve advance­ments on the edu­ca­tio­nal sec­tor. Howe­ver, chal­lenges per­sist, par­ti­cu­lar­ly in maxi­mi­zing sci­en­ti­fic com­mer­cia­liza­ti­on, streng­thening indus­try-sci­ence ties, and enhan­cing inno­va­ti­on capa­ci­ties.
As an Eras­mus+ fun­ded EU pro­ject, RiHEI aims to cata­ly­ze sus­tainable and respon­si­ble growth, with a focus on empowe­ring youth, fos­te­ring pri­va­te sec­tor col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons, and ensu­ring inclu­si­ve deve­lo­p­ment of Geor­gi­an Hig­her Edu­ca­ti­on Insti­tu­ti­ons.

Tog­e­ther with our estee­med con­sor­ti­um part­ners, we look for­ward to 3 years of fruitful and impactful col­la­bo­ra­ti­on: Uni­ver­si­ty of Lodz (Pol­and), Mar­tin Luther Uni­ver­si­ty of Hal­le-Wit­ten­berg (Ger­ma­ny), and Kutai­si Inter­na­tio­nal Uni­ver­si­ty, Iva­ne Java­ki­sh­vi­li Tbi­li­si Sta­te Uni­ver­si­ty, and Gori Sta­te Uni­ver­si­ty in Geor­gia.
