On 20 March 2015, our VP Operations Alex Bornyakov supported one of the Odessa teams at the finale of «IT-Eureka! Ukraine», the first nationwide IT competition of students.
This innovative projects contest was open for Ukrainian IT students from any university and was supported by the Ukrainian Government and Ministry of Education and Science in particular. The contest had two project nominations: The Best Innovation Idea and The Best Innovation Solution. 10 teams from the universities of Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Vinnitsa, Kharkiv and Odessa made it to the finale. As a result, the “Neuro Designer” team from Vinnitsa became the winner in the "The best innovation idea" category, and the “MeVICS” team from Odessa won in the "The best innovation solution" category.
