Kosice IT Valley focuses its activities into three main areas – education, innovation and collaboration. Many of our activities combine more areas and are crosscutting.

Our role is to:

  • Bring people, organizations and opinions together.
  • Create conditions for the development of the IT industry and the entire ecosystem around in Eastern Slovakia.
  • Actively search and communicate successes and good practice examples from our members outwards.

Kosice IT Valley Association was established in March 2007 as a joint initiative of educational institutions, government and leading IT companies. In 2012 it was transformed into the cluster.
