As a result of cooperation with Armenian companies operating in the field of IT, the EPIC project decided to establish the ITartgenUP platform, which aims to unite students, graduates and specialists in the field of IT. ITartgenUP is an educational platform that will allow students to gain a deeper knowledge in the most advanced spheres of IT, explore innovative ideas and discuss them with the best specialists and investors in IT.

Choosing this platform, the participants will have the opportunity:

  • To spend 14 days with internationally recognized specialists, communicate and consult with them in one of the best vacation spots in Armenia,
  • To transform ideas into business plans and find sponsors.

We are waiting for young people interested in IT, with a desire to be of a service to humanity at large, as well as those who have certain knowledge and seek professional help for further development.

During the course it is envisaged to use a whole range of modern didactic materials, organize active discussions, seminars, thematic excursions, games and other events, which will facilitate the assimilation of the studied material. As part of the educational program, participants will learn how to translate IT ideas into practice, protect and preserve intellectual property, find solutions to IT problems, design, develop and conduct research in IT markets, and, of course, find sponsors to turn ideas into business. On the last day of the course, the participants will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of IT companies and investors to present their own ideas and seek funding.
