 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The International Centre for Social Research and Policy Analysis (ICSRPA), is an independent NGO specializing in
research, consultancy and trainings on a wide range of issues including governance, economic competitiveness,
management, innovation, business and entrepreneurship, migration, tourism, environmental protection etc. ICSRPA
promotes the processes of conceptual change, reforms and development in Georgia, and has strong background and
experience in implementing various projects under the auspices of the international donors including European
Commission, USAID, United Nations Democracy Fund, German International Agency (GIZ).

Under the auspices of the European Commission and German Technical Cooperation Agency (GIZ), our experts
carried out diagnostic study analysis and created strategic framework for regional economic development in
Georgia. Particular attention has been paid to agribusiness sector development and engagement in
entrepreneurship activities. ICSRPA was actively involved in GIZ program - “Institution Building and Human
Resource Development for e-Learning in the Caucasus”, which significantly contributed to upgrade professional
skills and qualifications of entrepreneurs in the Black Sea area. ICSRPA has elaborated the relevant Strategy for
Regional Development of Georgia based on the preceding Diagnostic Report in the field of Innovation, New
Technologies and Entrepreneurship. ICSRPA Experts have taken the responsibility to assess institutional policy
background, programs, trends and initiatives with respect to regional innovation, technological progress and
entrepreneurship, developed the criteria for benchmarking evaluation approaches and provided the
recommendations to the Government of Georgia. Our experience also includes elaboration of coherent promotional
strategies and value-driven PR campaign in order to promote public awareness rising and cohesiveness among the
key stakeholders including the Government of Georgia, business sector, universities, scientific research institutions,
donor organizations, through presentations, workshops, public discussions, printing media, radio and television. Our
experts have successfully elaborated study to illustrate the methodology of the National Innovation System (NIS)
Framework, which has been successfully used in OECD countries and more recently is becoming the focus of
increased attention from developing nations. It introduced a framework for describing the national innovation
system, the purpose of which was to provide policy makers with a tool to understand the constitution and
characteristics of National Innovation System (NIS) in Georgia, to evaluate the nations innovation capabilities and
performance, and better assess policy choices and potential impacts. The study analyzed the concept of the
National Innovation System (NIS) and looks at innovation efforts comprising broader economic and educational
initiatives.

By the end of 2010, ICSRPA widely expanded transnational partnerships and gained significant support from large
international donors. The two year project - The Effects of Migration in Moldova and Georgia on Children and
Elderly Left Behind financed by the European Commission, was successfully implemented in collaboration with
Maastricht Graduate School of Governance of United Nations University and the Kiel Institute for the World
Economy.

From October 2012 to May 2013, ICSRPA trained 200 young members of political parties and CSOs within the
framework of the project “Promoting Democracy in Georgia Through Empowering Young Members of Political Parties
and Civil Society Organizations”, which was financed by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).

In 2012 ICSRPA was included in the Black Sea Basin Joint Operational Programme under the ENPI of the EU. Within
the framework of the financed projects under the auspices of this program, ICSRPA actively cooperates with
regional partner organisations from Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Ukraine, Moldova and Armenia. The Centre
has been awarded a Certificate, for the active participation in the EU Black Sea Cross Border Cooperation
Programme, by the Office of the State Minister of Georgia on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration.
