29 September, 2020
JSC "Energo-Pro Georgia" has joined the new Czech-Georgian scientific program. The aim of the program is to popularize the field of energy among young students, to promote the development of the education system, as well as to deepen cooperation between Georgian and Czech universities. The presentation of the project was held at the Czech Embassy. The presentation was opened by the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Georgia Peter Mikiska, the Head of the Human Resources Management Department of JSC "Energo-Pro Georgia" Giorgi Trapaidze, the Representative of the Czech Technical University in Prague, Dr. Peter Novak and Jan Chernik, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Czech Embassy.

The project facilitates cooperation between the Technical University of Prague, the Georgian Technical University and Akaki Tsereteli State University. The main goal is to promote the development of hydropower direction and to introduce modern approaches in the educational processes. Cooperation is also an opportunity for lecturers from Czech and Georgian universities to exchange experience and improve their skills. In addition to receiving a high quality education, students will be able to undergo enterprise practice / internship at ENERGO-PRO under the supervision of professional mentors. Upon completion of the internship, successful students will be given the opportunity for employment and further career development in the company.

"Based on our experience, when discussing the education system, a very big gap was revealed in the field of energy. From year to year it was difficult to find qualified young professionals for further employment. Obviously, this is a very important issue for our company. In course of such difficult challenges, about 5 years ago we revised the company's "strategy development plan". Since then, our main priority has been to support the education system and popularize the energy sector, in which direction we have implemented a number of successful projects. As for this project and the grant funded by the Czech government, where our company is represented as a partner, we think that this project will be very important in the process of EU integration, because high quality education will make young people more competitive from the first day of entering the labor market." - said Giorgi Trapaidze, Head of Human Resources Management Department of Energo-Pro Georgia.
