Projektinformationen

The international doctoral program in mathematics at Iv. Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, briefly TSU, is currently being established. Its rules and procedures are modelled on those at Göttingen University. Hence they are compatible with international standards and cotutelle agreements. The new international doctoral program involving 10 PhD students from Georgia removes the obstacles associated with extensive program requirements at TSU and allows to strengthen the already existing ties between the mathematics departments in Tbilisi and Göttingen. Tbilisi State University used to be one of the leading centres of Soviet mathematics. In order to revive this tradition, it is crucial to attract the most talented young mathematicians in Georgia into a scientific career. The academic career prospects for doctoral students in Georgia starting in the coming years will be excellent. The close collaboration with Göttingen University will give the doctoral students in this project further stimuli and international networking opportunities.
