 «The issues under discussion are rather topical for all higher educational establishments of Ukraine, for KPI, particularly, - first pro-rector of NTUU “KPI”, academician of Ukrainian NAS, Yurii Yakymenko noted in his speech at the opening ceremony of Forum. – Obviously, immediate contacts with representative employers of IT-companies and cooperation with them are of great importance for us. Thus, it’s no coincidence that the managers of all our institutes and faculties who train specialists for IT sphere take part in session”. He also spoke on the traditional Open international students’ Olympiad on programming named after S. O. Lebediev and V. M. Glushkov “KPI-Open” that has been hold in university for many years and invited listeners to take part in it as co-moderators and judges or by nominating teams of participants. However, the most detailed information on the conference was given by its initiator – permanent head of organizational committee Ivan Plotnikov, holding this position for 10 years.

The chief executive officer of Microsoft Company Ukraine, Nadiia Vasyl’ieva expressed an interesting idea about the present role of IT-technologies: “Actually, everything that is called IT-sphere – is no longer a sphere. This is a factor that modernizes other fields…” 

Thus, it is IT technologies that set standards and to some extend some directions of technical and economic progress. They are changing fast and at the same time they are changing the job market. Such situation puts particular demands to the specialists training in this sphere and requires particular response from the universities. But not only from them and from IT business as well where graduates start working. That is why the project “European educational initiatives” being originated from the Forum has rather extensive prospects. Especially owing to the fact that according to the head of the Council of competitiveness of information and communicative technologies industry, Igor Lysytskyi, the project is aimed at development of IT specialists training system as an important factor for creation of competitive national industry of information technologies. It is worthy to note that it is being realized by the Council in cooperation with leading IT-companies and international organizations.
