Lviv IT Cluster together with Infopulse is going to launch the new modern lab at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, at the Faculty of Electronics and Computer Technologies.
Last year Lviv IT Cluster in collaboration with IT companies and academics has launched the innovative Data Science & Intelligent Systems undergraduate program at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. This year, the new lab will be launched at the program in September and will be used for lectures and workshops.
Infopulse, Lviv IT Cluster member, has supported the idea of the new DS Lab. The company provides software development and has 2000 employees and 7 offices in Ukraine.
“The idea of launching the new lab fits the concept of our company this year – “I am a citizen of Ukraine”. We encourage our employees to take part in the development of our country, to join numerous social and educational initiatives. Infopulse is putting a lot of effort into developing Ukraine as more a competitive and stronger country. We’ve created the first portal for administrative services in Lviv and we’re glad to continue such cooperation with our city. Infopulse wants to develop IT industry, and we’re especially interested in the area of Data Science. Since last year, the company is actively working in this field, as we think DS is one of the most prospective tech areas nowadays. The new lab will offer 15 working places and a server. Our employees will also join the program as DS experts, ” – comments Ivan Korzhov, Regional Manager, Infopulse.
The official opening of the lab will take place in the beginning of September. It will be located at the Faculty of Electronics, on Drahomanova St., 50.
