Founded in 2002, the Economic Policy Research Center (EPRC) aims to improve the welfare of citizens through expert guidance from decision makers in various issues of economy, capacity-building of public institutions, and civil oversight of budgetary expenditures. The organization was created to build a contemporary economic research capacity in Georgia, to enhance economic decision-making and to be an important voice in economic and policy discussions.
Economic Policy Research Center provides mix of various projects, mainly focused on supporting the development of small and medium-sized businesses in Georgia.
As a part of their team, interns will have an opportunity to be actively engaged in our work and contribute to a social and economic cause.
They will be involved in various projects - from the very first stage of initiation, to planning, execution, monitoring and closure. This will provide students an opportunity to gain experience and learn more about the project life-cycle.
Moreover, Economic Policy Research center hosts international and local conferences, as well as webinars, thus the interns will participate in the organization and implementation process of these meetings.
EPRC provides opportunities for students to participate in research of global and local economic policy trends, to write reports, and be actively engaged in our day-to-day activities.
