ISET

ISET is renowned for its strong community spirit, which is perhaps best demonstrated by the activities of its Alumni Association, a non-commercial legal entity established in 2016. As well as organising activities and events for members of the ISET family, the Alumni Association is also a useful network for later personal and professional development. As a non-profit group, the Association is purely donation-based, with the top contributors in 2020 being former ISETers Salome Baslandze, Robizon Khubulashvili, Nino Doghonadze, Giorgi Papava, and Lasha Labadze.

The Alumni Association also distributes study stipends and recently launched a new one for 'the best improver', an award given to those BA students who have the most improved GPA scores between semesters. For the fall semester of the 2018-2019 academic year, it was awarded to one student; for the spring semester to two students; and for the fall semester of 2019-2020 to two students. Usually, students with the lowest GPA have higher chances, and the stipends encourage them to increase their motivation to continue and improve in their studies.

On July 21, ISET Policy Institute (ISET-PI) held an online presentation 'Development of Indirect Impact Assessment Methodology and Multipliers'.

The research study was implemented by ISET-PI in cooperation with the USAID Economic Security Program. The objective of this activity was first time in Georgia to develop output (revenue), employment, and investment multipliers for Georgian Economy. The multipliers will enable to assess the full-scale economic impacts of the various interventions implemented by the Government of Georgia (GoG), donors and other stakeholders. The objective of the conducted event was to present the methodology and findings of the work on Indirect Impact Assessment Multipliers to its main beneficiaries such as GoG and Think Tank organizations.
