On November 7, 2023, the PMBC (Partners Meeting for Better Collaboration) was inaugurated at the Georgian Technical University.
In a groundbreaking initiative, the Georgian Technical University (GTU) continues to foster its successful engineering collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), a partnership that has thrived since 2005. This year, GTU is actively engaged in two major collaboration agreements, namely the CERN-IPPOG (International Particle Physics Outreach Group) and the Technical Associate Institute (TAI) collaborative agreement with the ATLAS experiment.
Under the CERN-IPPOG collaborative agreement, which brings together universities from 39 countries, and the TAI collaborative agreement with the ATLAS experiment, encompassing 182 universities from 42 countries, GTU is playing a pivotal role in advancing scientific research on an international scale.
The collaboration entails the execution of shared work packages in tandem with partner university groups. To facilitate seamless coordination and progress, the university organized the Partners Meeting for Better Collaboration (PMBC) workshop on November 7, 2023. The workshop served as a platform for working meetings among university groups involved in the aforementioned projects.
The distinguished scientific supervisors leading the workshop are as follows:
David Gurgenidze: Professor and Rector of the Georgian Technical University
Dario Barberis: Professor in ATLAS Computing
Alexander Sharmazanashvili: Professor and Director of the Nuclear Engineering Center
Beyond the immediate involvement of the Nuclear Engineering Center, the workshop also aims to identify and engage other research groups within and outside GTU, encouraging broader participation in this esteemed scientific collaboration.
This collaborative endeavor reinforces GTU’s commitment to fostering international partnerships, pushing the boundaries of scientific exploration, and creating a platform for shared knowledge and innovation in the field of nuclear research. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting frontier of scientific collaboration.
