The participants discussed the work and results of the activities of the created creative laboratories in Kyrgyzstan and Georgia within the framework of the project and the implementation of the project as a whole. What syllabuses were developed for the independent work of creative laboratories.

In the meeting of the debate, questions were raised about how to improve the activity of creative laboratories. How to establish cooperation between universities of the partners of the project. It was suggested to make a strategic vision of all activities of the EUCA-INVEST project, including creative laboratories. What is the vision, mission, what resources are the partners of the project. Suggestions were made to make a SWOT analysis and develop a common development strategy.

And also,  the need to enhance cooperation among the universities of Kyrgyzstan and Georgia. Activities in the universities of Georgia on the creation of creative laboratories are poorly covered, and there is no exchange of experience with universities of Kyrgyzstan.


In Georgia, creative laboratories were established recently in two universities - in Kutaisi University and the Bank of Georgia University University. For today, the creative  laboratories has just started its work and will soon present  the first startups.

During the meeting, the issues of the themes of startups for creative laboratories were also discussed, start-ups should be  aim at achieving not only at high tech, but also at social innovations. As it was done in Kyrgyz universities, for example, a good start-up Eco-Courier. There are several start-ups in other universities.



Issues of cooperation  between the universities of Kyrgyzstan were touched upon. So, in Kyrgyzstan, universities have a small number of students than, the universities in Portugal for 20,000 students. For Portugal, one university is enough to provide for itself by people. And in Kyrgyzstan, the University teaches 3,500 students on average. It would be possible for Kyrgyz universities to conduct joint competitions at the national level, etc. Universities of Kyrgyzstan could strengthen interaction with each other and share  resources. 


All the information that the project participants received at the last meeting in Portugal should already be implemented in the activity of creative laboratories in Kyrgyzstan. The activity of creative laboratories should not focus only on one faculty of the university, the focus should be for the whole university. Participation can take and the students, and teachers, and researchers, i.e. all. This can be formal or informal cooperation. Within the framework of formal cooperation, universitets can sign a memorandum of cooperation between themself and their creative laboratories.
