Every day at ISET is devoted to teaching and studying, but October 15, 2013 was a day especially dedicated to education issues. ISET introduced its new Human Resources (HR) concentration and hosted Maia Miminoshvili, the Director of the National Examinations Center, in a joint event.

In the first part of the event, Muhammad Asali, the ISET professor coordinating the new concentration and Rusudan Medzmariashvili, a representative of BP Georgia – the donor organization for the new program – gave some background information regarding the HR concentration. BP Georgia has been with ISET since the very beginning and continues to generously support us by funding a specific focus on human resources. As Mrs. Medzmariashvili mentioned, ISET is an exception among BP-funded projects and the organization will continue to support our institution due to ISET’s contribution to Georgia’s future and the evident continuous enhancement of quality. Seven ISET students have already enrolled in the HR concentration.

On February 15, 2013, Professor Hans Wiesmeth, vice-president of the Saxon Academy of Sciences, delivered a presentation titled “Integrated Environmental Policies: Supporting the Sustainable Development of Georgia” to the academic community at the National Science Academy of Georgia. The event was initiated and supported by ISET. For the past five years Prof. Wiesmeth has been a senior visiting professor at ISET, where he teaches an environmental economics course to second year MA students.

Prof. Wiesmeth opened his talk by briefly reviewing current environmental conditions in Georgia. He focused primarily on the situation regarding the management of Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), which is at the lowest level of development.
