Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University hosted CISI consortium kick-off meeting. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic the meeting was carried out online - foreign partners and Georgian regional universities participated via Skype. The rector of TSU, Mr. George Sharvashidze welcomed the participants. All CISI partners participated in the meeting. Despite the changed format, the meeting achieved all planned goals – four academic working groups have been formed - these groups will be working on development of new academic courses by mentoring of foreign partners. The working groups carried out the online small group sessions on a next day of the meeting.
