Virtual Institute of Physics
The Virtual Institute is a free and equal association of different
Universities and research centers both from Georgia and outside.
Structurally, it is not a part of any of its founding institutions.
At present, there is an agreement from the High Energy Physics
Institute of Tbilisi State University, Georgian-American Association
"Kvali," The University of Bonn and FZ Juelich to take part in the
activities of the Institute
(for further ionfomation see Regional Training Network in Theoretival Physics
The main idea behind the Virtual Institute is a wide implementation of modern
communication means both in the teaching process and in the supervision
of the MS/PhD students. In particular,
Distant teaching courses are delivered via Internet for Georgian students
by the scientists residing outside Georgia.
Our aim is to achieve that these full-fledged lecture courses with
exercises and examinations eventually become a part of the curriculum offered
by the Georgian Universities.
Joint supervision of the MS and PhD students is performed. It is planned
that the best students, during working on their MS/PhD theses, will spend
part of their time in the western institutions.
Virtual Institute organizes regular seminars held by leading scientists
in their pertinent fields. The transmission of these seminars, like the
regular lecture courses, proceeds through the Internet
