Lviv IT Cluster Launches Independent Communities Support Program


Independent IT communities – are associations of IT professionals that band together to increase the level of knowledge and skills, create networks and share experiences to develop the technology industry in Lviv through joint efforts. Realizing the value of such associations, Lviv IT Cluster launches Independent Communities Support Program to provide expert assistance and contribute to their affluence and prosperity.

Lviv IT Cluster has created such communities IT Law Community, CTO Community, and Game Community, that successfully function, contributing to the development of the IT industry in Lviv. The IT Law Community was established to implement joint legal and legislative initiatives to protect the common interests of the IT industry. CTO Community brings together technology professionals with similar interests and responsibilities (CTO, Deputy CTO, Director of Engineering, Technical Director, VP of Engineering, VP of Technology). Game Community aims to raise the level of knowledge and skills, exchange experiences, and discuss current topics and ideas of the gaming industry. The purpose of creating communities is to bring together professionals with similar interests to organize joint projects and solve community problems, as well as to increase the level of knowledge, help in decision-making, prompt discussion, and consultation on professional issues. By creating these communities, Lviv IT Cluster has accumulated experience that it is ready to share within the Independent Communities Support Program.
