This presentation compares the status of social work as a science within the American and European contexts and discuses the ways of increasing visibility of Social Work as a science in transitional countries (e.g. in Georgia). The role of doctoral education and its influence on development of the science of social work is underlined. In addition, social work research characteristics are discussed and the most appropriate types of social work research (e.g. translational research) are prioritized to build the models for bridging the science and service communities and to directly affect the provision of services across different social work sectors. The role of institutional investments is considered as key for improving the scope and quality of social work research in transitional countries.
