The "Knowledge Transfer Community to bridge the gap between research, innovation and business creation - NoGAP" project meeting was held in Tbilisi, Georgia, on 24–25 March 2014. The meeting was opened by a welcome address of Academician Georgiy Kvesitadze, President of the Georgian National Academy of Sciences, who underlined importance of cooperation with the European Union in the field of science, technology and innovation.

The partners discussed the project’s progress for the initial six months of its implementation. The discussion was mainly focused on the quality development of the project deliverables and better ways of completing the tasks in progress.

Special attention was paid to the first interim progress report of the project and the use of Emdesk as a reporting tool.

The meeting programme also included presentations on the energy sectors of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia delivered by the local experts. As well, two on-site visits were organized: one to the Innovation Technology Transfer Centre of Georgia and one to the NGO “World Experience for Georgia”.

Back-to-back with the meeting, the project partners from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and SEZ conducted trainings for researchers and multiplicators on 26 and 27 March 2014.

The next project meeting is planned to be held in Nitra, Slovakia, on 25-26 September 2014.
