With cargo TK1868 from Venice to Istanbul and then destination Tbilisi with flight TK6166, the REACT project in the Caucasus area comes into full swing. Customs practices permitting, from January the Ilia University research team involved in the training activities recently carried out in Italy will start the installation of the 4 control units in some sensitive points in Tbilisi. By Q1 2023, the REACT network of control units will be fully operational between Georgia and Italy, allowing the comparison of social and environmental variables in different geo-political contexts.
