Experts.ai for Georgia

Technology transfer (transferring knowledge and technologies from universities to private companies or elsewhere to practice) is considered as an innovative mean of economic development and it has been given a lot of attention. However, there is a mismatch between research at universities and business needs which becomes even bigger in less developed countries such as Georgia.

Through deployment of an online and AI-enhanced platform Experts.ai, which gathers information about research results (publications, patents, projects, contractual research etc.), integrates them, and creates profiles of experts and organization and the project aims to enhance knowledge and technology transfer from research to real deployment. This shall contribute to high-quality data management, good governance, improved innovation ecosystem in Georgia, and ultimately economic growth.

The project is implemented by a Czech start-up company UNICO.ai CZ, which works on technology transfer and supports the cooperation of universities and businesses.
