The Department of Informatics and Telecommunications originated as a cross-departmental undergraduate program between the Departments of Physics and Mathematics in 1986 and it evolved into an independent department in 1989. It belongs to the Faculty of Science of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Notably, the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications has longstanding participation in EU research and development programs. In fact, the department is among the top university departments in Greece in attracting external funding. Additionally, the department belongs in the very top Greek departments in the number of scientific publications in international journals and conferences.

Technion is a science and technology research university, among the world’s top ten, dedicated to the creation of knowledge and the development of human capital and leadership, for the advancement of the State of Israel and all humanity. The opening of the Faculty of Electrotechnics dates back to 1947 and in 1965 changed its name to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

Since 2012, more than 27,000 companies have used our recruiting software to hire 1.5 million candidates. And that number’s growing fast. We’re interested in the way people interact with the world, and we make technology to empower people. So we use our curiosity and ambition to create software that helps companies source the best talent, communicate more effectively and scale faster.

Dateio was founded in 2013, back when Ondře Knot and Ivan Dovica decided to end their consultancy career and instead explore an unknown area – the analysis of payment data of banking clients. To this day, the founders still believe that data is the holy grail and that the future belongs to digital. The analysis of transaction data and their usage for product innovation is the foundation for a successful retail business. Dateio is behind the technology and data-model programmes for leading CEE banks and therefore operates one of the largest platforms for card‑linked marketing in the region. Dateio helps banks to drive higher activity among their clients and payment card usage while also supporting merchants to drive the life cycle of their customers and the revenue growth in the pay-per-performance model. The company operates as an open platform connecting banks and merchants.
