We create an IT sector interconnection. We involve people, companies, schools and institutions.



Košice IT Valley focuses on three priority areas – education, innovation and cooperation, through its activities. Many of our activities are cross-sectional and combine several areas.

Our task is:

  • Connecting people, organizations and opinions.
  • Creating conditions for the development of the IT industry and the entire ecosystem around Eastern Slovakia.
  • Searching for and communicating successes and good examples from the ranks of our members to the outside world.

The Košice IT Valley Association was established in March 2007 as a joint initiative of educational institutions, public administration and leading IT companies. In 2012, it was transformed into a cluster.


Cluster organizations are compared to demonstrate their ability and interest in increasing their excellence. Based on the evaluation of ESCA (European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis) of experts, Košice IT Valley received a certificate at the level of “Golden Label Cluster” in 2015, which included it in a group of selected clusters that proved their viability and quality of services. The European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI, www.cluster-excellence.eu/quality.html) awarding this award is an independent organization that assesses the quality of clusters.
