Yesterday, November 25th, the “Tekwill” project celebrated the initiatives and programs that contributed to the development of the IT community and Moldovan startups, designating their ambassadors – leaders of the initiatives that transform the Moldovan Tech community.
During the “Tekwill Ambassadors Awards” event, the Technical University of Moldova was nominated in the “Strategic Partners” section, and several initiatives related to UTM were awarded in the compartments: Conferences: Ruby Wine; Communities: YES-Europe Moldova; Competitions: EBEC Chișinău and FAF Hackathon.
Being a program focused especially on the activity of the university teachers, UTM is particularly proud of the appreciation received in the “National Impact” section for the efforts made by Vice-Rector Dinu ȚURCANU, thus emphasizing his attempt to bring development programs and opportunities closer to students, providing them with the support they need to achieve ICT performance, as well as his essential contribution in the improvement of the field he manages as a vice-rector – computerization, the relationship with the socio-economic environment, image and communication.
His conclusive statement, made immediately after the award ceremony, shared his joy in this regard:
– To be one of the Tekwill Ambassadors and to receive the “National Impact” distinction with the National Robotics Team is a double honor, but a responsibility as well! Thanks to everyone who has believed in me. I promise even more involvement, and more IT impact!
Launched in 2018 with the support of ATIC, the US Agency for International Development and Sweden, “Tekwill Ambassadors” underlines the idea that excellence and performance can and should be achieved with joint efforts, supporting projects that aim to contribute to the development of human capital for the ICT sector and to assist the development of entrepreneurship in the field. During this year’s edition, 11 initiatives were partially supported – conferences, training programs, hackathons. In total, over 1800 people benefited from learning opportunities, exchange of experience and knowledge transfer, opportunities for socialization, establishing new connections. According to the rules of the program, the “Tekwill” Project supported part of the expenses associated with the development of the initiatives, and their initiators were able to identify additional financial resources, sponsorships and partnerships.
