In addition to advising ISET students, Professor Hope used his ten-day stay in Tbilisi in order to deliver a public seminar “THE POTENTIAL OF GEORGIA’S ELECTRICITY SECTOR IN AN INTEGRATED REGIONAL POWER MARKET”.

On November 8, 2012 Professor Einar Hope, from the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), delivered a public seminar for ISETers, representatives of the Georgian energy sector and international organizations working in the field.
