Two young Georgian inventors were honoured at the annual Italian Innovation and Research Day on Thursday, with an occasion in Tbilisi unveiling prospects for their future opportunities.

Held in homage to legendary Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci, the event was hosted at Georgia's Innovation and Technology Agency (GITA) in the capital, with Italy's ambassador to Georgia Enrico Valvo and Georgia's deputy economy minister Irakli Nadareishvili presenting the prizes.

The two innovators have been selected for the embassy's STEM Study Visit competition, run between the GITA and Italy's COTEC Foundation for Innovation.
