The most important questions of the future seem to be:

1.) Which role universities play in the future?

2.) What are future working skills?
💿 digital literacy & interaction => virtual collaboration
💿 agile work
💿 digital learning & self initiative

3.) How to advance university-industry engagement in order to drive institutional changes?

It looks like we are on a good track with our partners from KUTAISI INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY and SIEMENS RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM.
The three days of ideathon, interaction and innovation together with Magda Magradze and Natascha Eckert were very interesting and enriching.
