ABOUT THE PROJECT
IT Research Resilience is a research project of the Lviv IT Cluster, which was transformed from the IT Research Ukraine project announced at the beginning of 2022. Due to the full-scale russian offensive, the research was adapted to new realities. For the first time, the Lviv IT Cluster investigated the socio-demographic profile and number of IT specialists, employee and office relocation, changes in the structure of companies, and migration attitudes of IT professionals in seven regions of western Ukraine. In addition, the project contains data on the increase in local consumption due to relocations in the regions and the forecast of the development of the IT industry after the victory of Ukraine. More than 5,000 respondents were surveyed in the Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Rivne, Ternopil, Volyn, Chernivtsi and Zakarpattia regions. Data collection and analysis within the sociological part of the IT Research Resilience project was provided by the Fama Research Agency on request from the Lviv IT Cluster.
The project was implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the USAID Program “Competitive Economy of Ukraine”, supporting small and midsize businesses and startups, and the Western NIS Enterprise Fund, which supports initiatives to promote reforms in Ukraine and transformative projects.
IT Research is a research network with a unique methodology, thanks to which a large-scale study of the Lviv IT market has been conducted in the city since 2015 on the initiative of Lviv IT Cluster. The IT Cluster team is ready to move forward, expand the geography of the research and involve even more Ukrainian tech hubs in the project. In 2021, Ivano-Frankivsk IT Cluster joined IT Research to conduct a deeper and broader study of the IT industry in two western Ukrainian cities.
The purpose of IT Research Resilience is to comprehensively investigate the changes occurring in the tech industry of the western region of Ukraine after the beginning of the full-scale invasion, to analyze the events and the transformation of the IT industry after the victory of Ukraine.
