Aims and Scope

This forum represents the long-term and successful cooperation established between the European Scientific Institute, ESI, and Grigol Robakidze University. The first event has been organized in Tbilisi in 2013. Since then it regularly gathers academics from different academic disciplines. 

This year the event will be organized at the Grigol Robakidze University Campus in Tbilisi. It will combine in-person and online sessions and will bring together scientists, professors, researchers, students, and research scholars to exchange their experiences and research results. However, the forum will also set a roundtable on academic writing and academic publishing to initiate a debate on the internationally recognized standards in these areas.

According to the scientific field, and the preferences of the authors, all the conference papers will be sent to one of the journals for possible publication. However, only the accepted papers will be published in one of the journals.


High quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in the all areas under the Social Sciences and Humanities as well as Natural/Life/Medical Sciences are cordially invited for presentation at this conference.
