ISET would like to congratulate resident faculty members Norberto Pignatti and Karine Torosyan on the publication of a new article (together with Maksym Obrizan of the Kyiv School of Economics) entitled “Job market outcomes for IDPs: The case of Georgia”, in the Journal of Comparative Economics. Working Paper versions of the article are available here, and here.

The authors studied the labor market performance of Internally displaced people (IDPs) in Georgia. Their analysis indicate that the labour market outcomes for IDPs are much worse than those for local residents, both in terms of labor market participation, unemployment and remuneration, with gaps not reducing over time. ISET is proud that Professors Pignatti and Torosyan have authored yet another international paper and wishes them more academic successes in the future.

An open call for prospective enterprises developing cleantech products, systems, processes or services has been announced. The projects should offer solutions in the area of climate change adaption or mitigation, ecosystem services, renewable energy, water and sanitation or urban development. Two grants are available, which are primarily looking for applicants representing small and medium-sized enterprises.

The deadline for applying for the planning grant is in March 2019, and October 21 2018 for the demonstration grant.

Applications will be revised and screened on a rolling basis during the application periods.
