The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) has signed an agreement with the Union Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to set up computer labs for school students in Armenia.
The project aims at upgrading information technology (IT) education and related facilities in 19 schools in urban and semiurban areas and 53 schools in rural areas. More than 15,000 students are expected to benefit from the project, where 72 labs will be set up. The labs will be set up at schools in Tavush region, one of the 11 provinces of Armenia, located in the north-west of the country and has a population of 1.34 lakh. The region borders Azerbaijan in the northwest and Georgia in the north. The agreement was signed by Ajay Bisaria, joint secretary, Eurasia and Rajat Moona, director general, C-DAC. The Hayastan All Armenian Fund (HAAF) is in the process of supporting Armenian governments efforts for the development of adequate IT infrastructure in Tavush region. The C-DAC will procure IT equipment through public tender in consultation with MEA, help in finalisation of the tender after technical evaluation, etc, and arrange for supply, do site inspection and other related works. The C-DAC will also supervise the onsite support during the period of warranty. The total estimated cost of the project is Rs. 2.8 crore. Moona said, The C-DAC has already made some inroads with the implementation of the India-Armenia Centre for Excellence in ICT at Yerevan, and I am sure we will be able to extend our expertise in Tavush region as well.
