Project summary

The project objects to create a continual training and retraining facility for off-shore programming specialists.

An off-shore programming is software development under contracts with foreign companies. This should be regarded as an alternative to the “brain drain” into developed countries.

The world growing demand for the IT- production creates possibility for the countries, which possess basic prerequisites, to create or to develop information technologies for their own needs as well as for the export. This is a possibility as well to increase the employment rate among the educated population (the middle class) and to provide the national industry with software products.

Kyrgyzstan disposes of a sufficient amount of potentially viable production capacities which are currently not in use., as well as skilled and relatively cheep manpower. Attracting foreign investments, advanced technologies and management can provide high capital efficiency.

The conditions seem to be favorable for the creation of the off-shore programming specialists training center. The basic task of the center will be retraining of “armour”scientists and people with high technical education for the solution of various IT problems for foreign and domestic customers.

The center will prepare both inpidual highly skilled developers and big professional teams for the specific tasks.

Thus, a significant quantity of work places will be created, which will solve the problem of IT- specialists placement and prevent their draining abroad.

Besides the personnel training, some technical tasks will be solved, i.e., programmer workplace organization (hardware selection and installation, local network, necessary software installation, etc.). This way the customers will be provided with the development centers on the turn-key basis.

The created training and retraining system for the off-shore programming specialists will make it possible to solve the problems of a job placement for “armour” scientists and technical workers, as well as to satisfy labor market demand for the IT- specialists.

The high qualification of the prepared specialists allows to solve various problems of foreign partners, as well as those of ISTC.

The center will be able to solve the problems of foreign companies representative offices (software development remote offices), as well as to create the software development pisions for the domestic producers.

Therefore, the results of the center activity will be claimed both on the external and on the internal IT markets. The accumulated experience, the accomplished personnel training and retraining system should assist in creating similar centers in other CIS countries.

The project meets the ISTC requirements due to the fact that the center activity provides work for “armour” specialists as trainers. The retrained experts should pass the secondary professional adaptation in order to be integrated into the world scientific community.

The project implementation process comprises teaching methodic materials development, facilities, active communication with software customers and training courses.

Foreign collaborators will take active part in professional training and retraining courses for the offshore programmers in the center. Therefore, the trainers and trainees professional level will meet the world requirements for information technologies.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
