Project management

Project description

The major aim of the phasing-out activities of the ASCN should aim at institutionalization of the capacities produced and enhanced within the framework of the program. Supporting the build-up of the graduate school in social sciences at Ilia State University, the main partner of the program in Georgia, aims precisely at achieving it. The university has recently received a Volkswagen Foundation grant to prepare a large project proposal, which will establish such a school; the proposal is to be submitted in spring 2017 and the final decision is to be made in late autumn of the same year.
