The prime purpose of the Institute of Earth Sciences is to develop earth sciences in the country, implement modern research methods in this direction, as well as create and introduce the most sophisticated scientific technologies and equipment. Multiple fields of the natural environment that is directly connected to Georgia’s sustainable development is dependent on earth sciences.

The top priority of the Institute of Earth Sciences is to ensure maximum involvement of the students of Ilia State University (ISU), as well as other higher education institutions of Georgia in the research process. The institute also aims to pass down to future generations the knowledge and experience acquired by scientists in the field of earth sciences and create any material and technical databases necessary for this purpose, as well as improve working conditions for the employees.

ISU actively cooperates with the Universities and Research Institutions of Europe, Asia and the U.S. Transferring modern and up-to-date methods and latest scientific achievements is one of the key prerequisites for proper planning and implementation of future research activities of the Institute of Earth Sciences.

The ISU Institute of Earth Sciences comprises the research, science and learning departments as follows: Seismic Monitoring Center and the Departments of Geology, Geography, Seismology, Engineering Seismology, Applied Geophysics, Geodesy and Software Development.

The Institute carries out local and global research in active tectonics and volcanism, climate changes, the earth ecosystem, biodiversity, raw materials and other resources of the planet, seismic dangers and risk assessment, formulation of norms for construction industry, as well as geophysical, geomorphological and geological sciences, which are applied in geological, geographic, engineering and archeological works, as well as other natural sciences and social sectors.

The Institute of Earth Sciences is also an organization operating Georgia’s National Seismic Network and the seismic database. In addition, the institute conducts geodetic observations and operates GPS Observation Network.

Objectives:

  • Develop research of scientific/applied nature in the direction of earth sciences with utterly practical or fundamental scientific value;
  • Create material and technical basis in order to provide all the necessary conditions to gain academic education, as well as promote successful implementation of Master’s degree and Ph.D. programs in earth sciences and contribute to popularization of the fields of earth sciences in future generations by helping students get involved in the research process not only in fundamental scientific but also applied fields;
  • Be guided by Georgia’s interests and priorities, such as: the country’s safety, sustainable development and economic growth when choosing research and educational areas;
  • Maximally promote international cooperation, as well as the implementation of joint research and educational programs with similar foreign institutions.
  • Improve the quality of research and teaching by following the example of the leading universities and scientific centers of the world;
  • Facilitate the implementation of interdisciplinary research to ensure maximum involvement of specialists of different fields in different projects for the purposes of improving cooperation and communication between them
