14 Aug, 2017

Lviv IT Cluster together with the sociological agency FAMA has started working on the second part of the sociological research called IT Research 2017 which aims to show the economic impact the IT industry has on other industries. We ask the people who work in IT industry in Lviv to join the research by completing a short survey.

To update the info about the number of IT companies and IT specialists in Lviv as well as show how the IT industry influences other industries in the city, we need to receive 800 answers. If you work in the IT industry in Lviv we kindly ask you to participate in the survey and fill in a short form.

This year’s IT Research aims to find out the interconnection and economic impact of IT industry in related industries, in particular, what are the revenues other industries receive due to the activities of Lviv-based IT companies, for instance, real estate and health insurance industries etc. The research will also focus on spendings of IT companies and individual IT employees in order to understand what do they spend the most money on – investments, shopping, real estate, leisure, transport etc.

In addition, the research will help to update information about the number of IT companies and IT employees in the city since the industry is constantly growing. According to the previous IT Research completed in 2015, there were 15 000 IT employees in Lviv with 192 IT companies operating in the city. There are unconfirmed data that the number of IT employees has increased up to 20 000 people working at more than 250 IT companies.
