Cisco will help to develop IT and innovation in Ukraine

Ukraine will introduce more innovations and digitalization in education. The Ministry of Digital Transformation has signed a memorandum with the world’s top company Cisco.

This was announced by Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov.

Ukraine is joining the global Cisco Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) program, which operates in 48 countries. The program’s goal is to help create new jobs, increase GDP, and use more innovation in the public and private sectors.

“We will work together on Ukraine’s innovation strategy. We will develop the Diia.Osvita platform and many other educational and digital projects,” Fedorov said.

Cisco will share content with IT for Diia.Osvita, the Cisco Talent Bridge Matching Engine, which will help HR professionals find specialists faster and students find great jobs.

As part of the Digital Schools project, Cisco will provide 1600 devices with Wi-Fi access points to connect schools to the Internet and 1000 webcams. In addition, digital transformation officers (CDTOs) will be able to visit Cisco offices in different countries to improve their technology skills and learn about global digitalization trends.

“The memorandum with Cisco is an investment in the future and a powerful signal for large global companies to strengthen cooperation with Ukraine,” the Vice Prime Minister added.

Fedorov thanked Cisco’s Vice President of Country Digitalization Chris Reeves and Senior Vice President and Chief Global Innovation Officer Guy Dietrich for their support and faith in digital Ukraine.
