The western part of Romania known as Banat is a multi-cultural region that brings together Romanian, German, Hungarian and Serbian history in a modern EU context, where English is also widely spoken amongst youngsters and IT-related professionals.
While over the last 15 years the region has been a well-established hub for telecom and automotive IT, more recently it has also become a hot spot for mobile, multimedia or web & cloud service technologies.
The range of expertise goes from HW (both Silicon and PCB) to SW that can span from low-level embedded software to various applications provided either as products or services.
There is a noticeable shift in focus of the multi-national corporations operating in the area, from development to higher value-adding research projects. This is accompanied by the rise of the first local globally-relevant IT entrepreneurs, while Angel and VC funding vehicles emerge along with various other sources, including EU funding opportunities.
This platform (Banat IT – BIT) including a wide social media component is dedicated to all stakeholders in the local IT industry: universities, talent, researchers, IT employees, recruiters, and affiliated supporting services.
BIT is conceived to keep the IT community connected and informed about various opportunities to drive this industry towards continuously leveraging its strengths as a major pole of IT excellence.
The BIT idea and its execution are the results of personal involvement and efforts of a small group of professionals from the sector, and is not directed, endorsed or supported in any way by any public or private local, regional, national or international organization.
