“DIGITAL UPGRADE” HAS STARTED – THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR DIGITIZING SMES

About 100 entrepreneurs will be trained for a month to grow their successful online business. Digital education is carried out through the “Digital Upgrade” training program, implemented by ODIMM in partnership with Startup Academy.

From March 9 to April 2, business representatives who applied to the “SME Digitization Support Tool” will benefit from direct expertise to guide the process of migrating business online from mentors with experience in marketing, communication, IT, logistics, etc.

Iulia Costin, General Manager of ODIMM, highlighted the importance of training in the field of digitalization, given that it represents the future of business in the current conditions. “Digitization provides SMEs with important opportunities to improve the efficiency of production processes and the ability to innovate in terms of products and business models, and the use of e-commerce and information technologies significantly increases their competitiveness in the market.”

Maria Nemciuc, entrepreneurial program manager, TEKWILL, stated that: “the development of the IT sector is very important, but it cannot grow without synergy with companies in other fields of activity, which are consumers of IT products”.

The beneficiaries of the courses were distributed, based on a self-assessment questionnaire, in 3 levels, depending on the degree of business digitization. They will go through 5 specific modules for business digitization: online presence; e-commerce planning; customer service; process digitization and transport and logistics in the context of e-commerce.

The SME Digitization Support Tool was launched in June 2020 to support the digital transformation and development of small and medium-sized enterprises to harness the innovative potential and facilitate companies’ access to internal and external markets. To date, 466 companies have been trained and 180 have been financially supported through Grants and Business Vouchers. Another 99 businesses were submitted for funding under the 2nd Call for Projects. The program is funded from the state budget, supplemented by European Union funds and GIZ Moldova with financial support from the German Government, being implemented by ODIMM in partnership with GoOnline of COR Association, Startup Academy Program developed by TEKWILL project, with support from USAID, Sweden and UK aid.

НОВЫЕ ИНВЕСТИЦИИ ДЛЯ РАЗВИТИЯ АТО ГАГАУЗИЯ

Новые инвестиции в развитие АТО Гагаузия! Согласно Меморандуму о взаимопонимании между Исполнительны Комитетом АТО Гагаузия и Tekwill, в регион привлечено больше инвестиций в образование и подготовку местной рабочей силы в ИКТ, поощрение бизнеса, основанного на инновациях, стимулирование конкурентоспособности в местной деловой среде, а также создание центра передового опыта в области. Инициатива является частью обязательства по расширению в рамках TEKWILL – важного проекта для развития молдавского сектора информационных технологий, реализованного при поддержке Агентства США по международному развитию (USAID) и Швеции.

Дерек Дж. Хоган, Посол США в Республике Молдова: „Правительство США посредством Агентства США по Международному Развитию USAID поддерживает развитие молдавского сектора IT с 2005 года, улучшая экономическую конкурентоспособность Молдовы, продвигая транспарентность и улучшая управление. И мы рады, что сегодня, в Комрате являемся свидетелями зарождения еще одного многообещающего партнерства – на этот раз с Invest Gagauzia – с целью создания центра передового опыта Tekwill в Комрате. Соединенные Штаты являются преданным партнером Молдовы. В течение последних тридцати лет мы строили наши отношения на основе общих интересов и обоюдных стремлений. Сегодняшнее подписание меморандума о сотрудничестве является еще одним напоминанием того, что мы успешны вместе.”

Анна Либерг, Посол Швеции в Республике Молдова: „Я рада видеть, как TEKWILL расширяется и создает возможности по всей Молдове. Путь TEKWILL-а – это история успеха, и его расширение происходит благодаря твердой приверженности людей в Гагаузии, которые, безусловно, меняют и создают будущее страны. Швеция благодарна за партнерство с USAID и ATIC, в котором мы через проект TEKWILL можем поддержать развитие ИКТ, цифровизацию и инновации. TEKWILL является впечатляющей инициативой, важной для продвижения к Целям Устойчивого Развития.”

Центр передового опыта в области ИКТ – для подключения сообщества к идеям, ресурсам и отрасли

Центр передового опыта в области ИКТ будет расположен в Комратском Государственном Университете и этой осенью откроет свои двери для широкой публики. В его рамках будет организовано несколько мероприятий с целью поощрения использования технологий, программ для предпринимателей, образовательных программ для получения ИТ специальностей и повышения квалификации, отвечающих потребностям частного сектора. Инвестиции в оснащение Центра передового опыта в области информационных технологий будут осуществляться в рамках проекта TEKWILL, и власти Гагаузии, одна из подписавших Меморандум, взяли на себя обязательство построить и отремонтировать центр за счет собственных средств.

Ирина Влах, Башкан Гагаузии: „Данная платформа станет важным этапом для развития ИТ-сектора в Гагаузии, и мы сосредоточимся на этом проекте, чтобы получить результаты уже в ближайшем будущем. Желаю, чтобы через 2-3 года мы вместе с вами здесь перечисляли технологии и ИТ-решения, разработанные талантливой молодежью, которая пройдет курсы, предлагаемые TEKWILL, и тогда мы можем уверенно заявить, что Гагаузия – это не просто обычный пользователь технологий, а провайдер ИТ-технологий. Особая благодарность партнерам по развитию, США и Швеции, за оказанную поддержку, без которой создание этой платформы на данном этапе было бы достаточно сложным проектом.”

Анна Кирица, директор стратегических проектов ATIC/директор проекта TEKWILL: Сектор ИТ постоянно растет, а впечатляющие результаты, полученные в последние годы, создают необходимые предпосылки для инвестиций в развитие сектора на национальном уровне. Мы уверены, что этот центр станет катализатором развития муниципия Комрат, а также и других населенных пунктов региона. Мы реализуем несколько программ для любых возрастов и групп: для школьников, студентов, учителей, молодых специалистов и т.д. – чтобы расширить возможности развития в регионе и создать предпосылки для соединения талантов и потенциала человеческих ресурсов с возможностями, предлагаемыми национальными и местными ИТ-компаниями».

Первыми бенефициарами проектов TEKWILL в Гагаузском регионе станут учащиеся и учителя общеобразовательных школ. С 1 сентября они будут изучать предметы будущего в рамках инициативы «Tekwill в каждой школе» – комплексной программы внеклассных занятий. Таким образом, 37 школ региона будут подключены к национальной сети и будут обучаться в рамках факультативных уроков 6-ти цифровым курсам на платформе tekwill.online.

До конца года предусмотрено внедрение и других программ TEKWILL, направленных на стимуляцию предпринимательства и ИТ-обучения, таких как: Tekwill Academy, Tekwill Academy Kids, Startup Academy, Startup Moldova Digital Upgrade и др.

О проекте TEKWILL

Tekwill был создан в 2017 году как Центр передового опыта ИКТ-сектора в Молдове с основной целью: привести эту область в соответствие с требованиями XXI-го века. Для того, чтобы продолжать вносить вклад в повышение конкурентоспособности ИТ-отрасли и других стратегических секторов экономики, центр расширил текущие сферы деятельности, став в 2019 году комплексным проектом национального уровня. Основная цель проекта Tekwill как платформы, посвященной прогрессу ИТ-сектора, заключается в обеспечении значительного влияния на экономическое развитие страны за счет улучшения предпринимательских и образовательных возможностей членов общества, а также увеличение потенциала исследований и научных разработок в рамках вузов, в соответствии со спросом ИТ-рынка.

AGTECH CONFERENCE: DIGITIZATION IS NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE MORE PRODUCTIVITY AND SUSTAINABILITY IN AGRICULTURE

The global pandemic crisis has accelerated the digitalization of agriculture, and farmers are more determined to implement smart solutions to increase the field’s performance. Several farmers, producers, local and international experts participate for two days in the AgTech conference “Digital Solutions in Agriculture” 2021 – a platform for discussion, expertise and exchange of experiences, in order to promote the competitiveness and sustainability of agriculture through information technologies. The guests of the event discussed several solutions to encourage smart farming and were presented the success stories of entrepreneurs who opted for digitalization. Also, the current state of the domestic agriculture sector was analyzed from the perspective of digitalization, and top companies presented real solutions to overcome the existing problems in the sector. More than 150 people attended the third edition of the conference. The AgTech Conference is organized by Agrobiznes with the support of the USAID Performance Agriculture in Moldova (APM) project in partnership with the TEKWILL Project, supported by USAID and Sweden.

Sergiu Jaman, founder of Agrobizness: “The“ AgTech ”conference confirmed the increased interest of entrepreneurs, institutions and organizations in the sector towards digitalization, and this year we come up with more solutions and innovations. This year, we are also present in Romania, through our colleagues from AgroInteligența, because AgTech presents a topic of interest for specialists from across the Prut. I want to thank all our partners, because the joint efforts made this event possible. Together with my colleagues, we looked for interesting and experienced speakers to share valuable suggestions with our participants, so I am sure that the newly obtained information will be successfully implemented. ”

How do we reduce expenses? How do we optimize the work process or the number of workers? How do we manage the business remotely? These are just some of the issues that conference attendees tried to find answers to on the first day of the event. “AGTech” speakers spoke about the prospects for the development of Moldovan agriculture, and farmers talked about successful models that they have already managed to implement in business – digital systems for monitoring and control of areas protected from high value cultivation, applied technological solutions in animal husbandry, digital farm management, orchard monitoring using GPS systems and others. The discussions were divided into four sessions, attended by experts in the field, government representatives, as well as international development partners of the Republic of Moldova.

Agriculture – an important field for the national economy of the Republic of Moldova

Vasile Șarban, head of the policy department for production, processing and quality regulation of plant products, MADRM: “In the 21st century, the use of information technologies has become a necessity without which we cannot develop. This is also true for the agricultural sector, with innovations being essential to achieve greater productivity and competitiveness without significant losses. The government has aligned itself with new trends and started implementing digital solutions through the eGovernment Agency. It is about the eguvernare.md platform, thanks to which we have realized over 40 e-transformation projects, which are for the benefit of the citizens, farmers and people who visit the Republic of Moldova. At present, for greater performance, we need to focus on the implementation of information technologies for all value chains in agriculture.”

Being one of the essential factors to achieve a performance agriculture, the digitalization of agriculture is also supported by development partners.

Scott Hocklander, Head of Mission of USAID Moldova: “I am surprised and inspired, at the same time, by the involvement of technology in the field of agriculture in the Republic of Moldova. I believe that digitization is an important and beneficial change, especially during the Covid-19 period. We are convinced that using these innovative technologies, Moldovan producers will be able to improve their products and find opportunities to overcome many challenges of these times. This initiative is an important one, because it not only accelerates the digitization process, but also offers young people chances to get involved, the number of which is growing rapidly and I am impressed. I want to emphasize once again USAID’s continued commitment to develop and breathe new life into Moldova’s agriculture. We will focus our efforts on combining digital tools in agriculture, because being efficient, resilient and competitive will increase the chances of modernization and growth.”

According to statistics, over 850,000 Moldovans work in agriculture and generate, annually, about 13% of the country’s GDP. Even though the digitalisation of the agricultural sector brings many benefits and a number of actions and tools are already being implemented, there are still many barriers to exploiting its full potential.

Ana Chirița, director of the TEKWILL project: “Starting from the premises meant to bring together technologies and high-performance agriculture, the ICT sector aligns with the needs of the agricultural sector, to contribute to bringing technology companies closer to traditional industries and expand partnerships that can add value increased in the development of both branches. By joining forces, we believe that the IT sector can bring more efficiency, performance, opportunities and development opportunities to the agricultural sector. In the last 9 months, with the support of our partners, we have implemented several solutions for the agricultural sector, which should be successfully integrated into the traditional production process. The TEKWILL project will continue to engage and support the country’s strategic sectors, to create new jobs, but also to open doors to other related fields.”

In this context, supporting sustainable agriculture is one of the 5 business verticals that TEKWILL supports within the National Program “Startup Moldova” Digital Impact – a platform that encourages sectoral collaboration between traditional and IT industries. Some of the initiatives supported by the project will be presented at the second day of the “AgTech” Conference. On March 3, participants in the event will have the opportunity to learn from representatives of the Agency for Intervention and Payments in Agriculture how the online file submission system works to facilitate obtaining documents for various services. The largest retail networks in the country will talk about the experience of payment systems and processes, and foreign specialists will report on their experience in the transition from traditional to performance agriculture. Also, for the first time, the conference will open the doors to new innovations in the field of AgTech and will offer the opportunity to startups to present their products to the public, during the “Demo Day”. Thus, the event participants will establish lasting connections with ecosystem players, mentors, sponsors and potential users of the product.

„TEKWILL ÎN FIECARE ȘCOALĂ” SE EXTINDE ȘI ÎN NORDUL ȚĂRII. ÎNREGISTREAZĂ-ȚI ȘCOALA PENTRU A STUDIA ÎN ACEST AN PROFESIILE VIITORULUI!

„Tekwill în fiecare școală” se extinde în regiunea de nord a țării! Din toamnă, mai mulți elevi vor studia profesiile viitorului în cadrul lecțiilor opționale, la școală. Astfel, ei vor avea posibilitatea să-și dezvolte gândirea creativă și cea critică, capacitățile de comunicare, abilitățile digitale și competențele necesare pentru piața muncii de mâine. Proiectul vine cu o viziune inovativă, cu noi cursuri care au un conținut digital de interacțiune permanentă, cu metodologii inovative pentru predare și învățare în clasă. Pentru anul academic care urmează, 22 de instituții de învățământ din nordul țării sunt așteptate să se înscrie la program și să beneficieze de un șir de oportunități și experiențe dedicate elevilor, care ulterior vor putea alege mai ușor o profesie în IT sau domenii conexe. Mai mulți profesori din regiune au fost invitați la un eveniment de prezentare a proiectului la Bălți.

Tatiana Alexeev, manageră a proiectului „Tekwill în fiecare școală”: „Dezvoltarea economică a societății depinde în mare măsură de profesiile pe care elevii de astăzi le vor îmbrățișa mâine. Prin intermediul celui mai complex program de cursuri extra curriculare – „Tekwill în fiecare școală” – ne dorim să contribuim la educația lor prin oferirea unor platforme care să îi ajute să obțină abilități și competențe adaptate la necesitățile pieții muncii. În anul curent, în cadrul proiectului pilot, am reușit să aducem profesiile viitorului în 77 de școli. Nu ne oprim aici. Până în anul 2024, ne dorim ca 90% din instituțiile de învățământ general și liceal din țară să facă parte din program.”

Pentru ca elevii să poată accesa cursurile oriunde s-ar afla, a fost creată o platformă specială – tekwill.online. Fiecare curs cuprinde 34 de lecții, care sunt studiate câte una pe săptămână, timp de un an sau doi ani academici consecutivi. Acestea includ resurse educaționale de tip text digital, lecții video, exerciții de simulare, teste interactive de evaluare și realizarea unui proiect final. Pe durata cursului, elevii pot adresa întrebări profesorilor atunci când au neclarități, nu pot duce la bun sfârșit un item sau vor să afle ceva nou.

Conținutul este disponibil în limba română, iar câteva deja și în limba rusă, fiind conceput în baza unei curricule divizată în patru domenii:

  • Inteligența Artificială (cursurile: Programarea Agloritmilor in C/C++, Inteligența Aritificială)
  • Dezvoltare Software (cursurile: Proiectarea și Dezvoltarea Web, Proiectarea și Dezvoltarea Aplicațiilor Mobile)
  • Industrie Creativă (cursurile: Design Grafic, Video Storytelling)
  • Leadership Antreprenorial (cursurile: Inteligenta Emoțională, Antreprenoriat).

Experiențele școlilor din Bălți participante la proiectul pilot

Pe durata anului academic 2020-2021, cursurile programului-pilot „Tekwill în fiecare școală” sunt predate în 4 instituții de învățământ din Bălți. Elevii acestora studiază 3 discipline ale proiectului: design grafic, proiectarea și dezvoltarea web și programarea algoritmilor în C/C++, sub îndrumarea a 10 profesori instruiți special pentru a preda cursurile proiectului.

Olga Elpujan, directoarea liceului teoretic „Ion Creangă” din Bălți: „În calitate de manager al unei instituții de învățământ, am aplicat la proiect din dorința de a le oferi elevilor posiblitatea de a obține mai multe competențe și pentru a-și dezvolta portofoliul digital. Împreună cu alte cadre didactice care predau profesiile viitorului în instituția noastră, am reușit să realizăm un șir de produse digitale datorită cursului de Design Grafic. Mai mult, proiectul ne-a oferit și echipamentul necesar pentru lecții, fapt pentru care suntem foarte recunoscători. Anterior, profesorii duceau lipsă de instrumente de lucru pentru a se pregăti la ore. Mulțumim proiectului „Tekwill în fiecare școală” și donatorilor pentru formarea din cadrul cursurilor, suportul didactic și curricula actualizată. Elevilor le sunt pe plac disciplinele noi, iar profesorilor le sunt asigurate toate condițiile pentru a realiza un proces didactic de calitate.”

Irina Mutruc, profesoară de limba engleză la liceul teoretic „Ion Creangă” din Bălți: „Sunt profesoară de limbi străine, dar acest lucru nu m-a împiedicat să devin mentor la cursurile „Tekwill în fiecare școală” și să predau Proiectarea și Dezvoltarea Web. Din dorința de a face funcțional site-ul instituției noastre de educație, am participat în programul de formare a profesorilor, unde am învățat cap-coadă cum să gândim și să creăm un produs. Pa parcursul programului de formare, m-am convins că fiecare poate însuși una dintre profesiile viitorului, dacă își dorește acest lucru. În prezent, copiii au acces la tehnologii informaționale, iar școala împreună cu profesorii au misiunea de a-i ajuta să progreseze și să se dezvolte pentru a putea face față ulterior cererilor de pe piața muncii.”

Profesorii sunt un pilon important în educația elevilor, iar pentru a-i învăța să predea disciplinele proiectului, și ei parcurg un program de formare alături de mentori experimentați în domeniu. În curând va fi dat startul sesiunilor de instruire pentru cadrele didactice, iar cei care vor să predea cursurile „Tekwill în fiecare școală” trebuie să se asigure că instituția de învățământ este înscrisă la program. Până în data de 22 februarie, reprezentanții școlilor și liceelor trebuie să completeze formularul pentru a deveni parte din cea mai mare comunitate de educație inovativă din țară.

Despre „Tekwill în fiecare școală”

Dezvoltarea proiectului „Tekwill în fiecare școală” a fost posibilă prin mobilizarea eforturilor financiare ale sectorului privat și ale cetățenilor țării din Moldova sau diasporă (în cadrul campaniei de finanțare participativă a proiectului TwentyTu, a cărui start a fost dat în 2018), precum și a partenerilor externi de dezvoltare – USAID Moldova, Suedia, EU4Moldova și PNUD Moldova. De asemenea, proiectul este dezvoltat în colaborare cu Ministerului Educației, Culturii și Cercetării. Pe termen lung, proiectul are misiunea de a pune în valoare capitalul uman al Republicii Moldova și de a crește o generație de oameni care să creeze acasă, în Moldova, produse și servicii care să răspundă provocărilor social-economice naționale și globale.

TECH ENTREPRENEURSHIP WILL ALSO BE LEARNED BY STUDENTS FROM MOLDOVAN UNIVERSITIES

The talent, potential, and aspirations of young people in the Republic of Moldova are premises that allow the development of dynamic and profitable sectors of the national economy. That is why TEKWILL focuses its efforts on encouraging entrepreneurship among the new generations. In the 2021-2022 school year, with the support of the project in 4 universities in Chisinau, Balti, Comrat, and Cahul that teach IT or related fields, entrepreneurship will be taught – one of the investment directions of the project, with the support of USAID development partners and Sweden.


Ana Chirița, director of the TEKWILL project: “We consider that the promotion of the entrepreneurial culture in our country can generate positive results if it is correlated with the education of young people and the development of related skills. The integration of a dedicated course in the field is more than a necessity for future specialists, as Moldovan universities face various challenges related to change or performance, etc. We want students to learn more about entrepreneurship, to bring about changing visions, knowledge, and skills, to support the development of a digital economy. Nowadays, future professionals need to acquire new skills in order to be more competitive on the labor market and to generate innovative and useful products for society, with the help of information technologies. “
From October this year, 40 students will benefit from the knowledge and entrepreneurial guidance within the project. The course is implemented in order to be integrated into the basic educational program and certified in the bachelor’s degree.


The pilot project will be implemented in partnership with the Technical University of Moldova.
In order to better meet the expectations of students’ knowledge of entrepreneurship, a pilot edition of the program will be launched within the Startup Academy. It will take place in partnership with the Technical University of Moldova, in March-May this year. The course will be attended by 10 students from the Faculty of Computers, Informatics and Microelectronics, but also from the Faculty of Economics and Business Engineering.


Viorel Bostan, Rector of TUM: “The labor market is constantly changing, and future employees will have to face the new challenges with flying colors. That is why young people need to acquire more skills and abilities in order to be successful in a highly competitive environment. Promoting entrepreneurship in education as one of the key competencies will encourage young people to become more enterprising, find innovative solutions to societal problems and create products that add value to the country’s socio-economic development. ”


What will students learn?
The program includes an extensive course on technological business development and ecosystem trends. Mentors specialized in the fields of IT, business and startups will guide participations in creating a business from idea to application. During this time, students will be familiar with strategic management, financial planning, marketing, pitch, attracting investors, etc. The course will be taught in English, and the educational process will involve a mixed approach of working in groups, but also individually, young people being stimulated to study and apply knowledge outside the classroom. Participants will be selected based on the idea generated, the level of knowledge of English and the motivation to participate in the program. Those wishing to register for the pilot project must complete the application form HERE during February.


“Startup Academy” part of the Startup Moldova program is an educational initiative dedicated to current and potential entrepreneurs, which is developed within the TEKWILL Project, with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Sweden. The basic objective of the Tekwill Project, as a platform dedicated to the progress of the IT sector, is to ensure a major impact on the economic development of the country by improving the entrepreneurial and educational capacities of society members, but also the research and development potential of higher education institutions, in line with the demand on the IT market.
