Dear Archil Prangishvili,
I would like to invite faculty and students at Georgian Technical University, TBILISI to participate in two new challenges organized by the United Nations and its partners. Both challenges invite researchers, data scientists, entrepreneurs, and other creative minds to apply their skills to build open-source solutions for tackling global challenges.
Share data, evidence and best practices to be featured in an Inclusion and Diversity Report for companies, entrepreneurs and start-ups. Deadline October 31st, 2019.
FutureSkills: Forecast skill trends to help governments and individuals prepare for a transforming world of work. The winning submissions will be featured at a conference organized by the Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (J-WEL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA.
Participation can range from submitting new ideas and research to developing full-fledged solutions. In every case, getting involved should prove rewarding.
I thank you for sharing this invitation widely, including with your faculty of engineering, computer science, mathematics, business, statistics, as well as with business incubators, accelerators, and entrepreneurship and social responsibility centers.
