Third Mission

Strengthening the quality and relevance of the 3rd mission in Georgian universities - SQUARE


The main objective of the project SQUARE  is the improvement of 3M activities in the Georgian HEIs.

Throughout the project, the inventory and assessment of the 3M activities, their analysis and strategic planning, implementation and evaluation are carried out, together with the capacitation of the university's top management and staff. The project’s activities lead to the fundamental changes in the policy of universities in Georgia on the institutional level.

The SQUARE project results serve as a basis for the update of the national external QA system, provide foundations for guidelines to update the HEI management and improve the articulation between teaching, research and services to the community. The project envisages a clear definition of the mission and role of the universities at a national level and provides clear direction for the universities in Georgia.
