ABOUT THE PROJECT
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 first survey in 2015 aimed to provide an overview of the IT industry and characterize the Lviv IT market. The second research from 2017, the third one (2018) and the fourth (2019), apart from providing the market overview, focus on measuring the economic effect of the IT industry in Lviv. The fifth research (2020) evaluates the impact of the pandemic on the activity and development of the tech industry in Lviv. In 2021, the research was performed in cooperation with Ivano-Frankivsk IT Cluster aimed at a more extensive study of the IT industry in two cities of western Ukraine – Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk. Apart from analyzing the economic effect of the IT industry, IT Research 6.0 studies human capital, the impact of higher education, COVID-19 effect on the IT industry and more.
