26th of March 2004, Bucharest - Consistent in its mission as citizen company and always preoccupied to sustain performance in educational field, SIVECO Romania always involves itself with responsibility in educational projects, at all levels. In addition, to its sponsorship for the Balkan Olympiad in Informatics 2003, the donation of the application for computerized process at the high-school admission in 2001, 2002, 2003 and to SIVECO Cup, SIVECO Romania helps financially the official trip of the team representing the Mathematics and Informatics Faculty from University of Bucharest to the finals of the international programming contest, in Prague.

ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, it's at its 28th edition and gathers a record number of finalist teams from all over the world: 3152 teams participated at the regional preliminaries, from a total of 1412 universities.

"We are always happy to help young people, who bring fame to IT Romanian school. As a software developer company we see them as younger colleagues, that have to be supported in order to reach performance" says Florin Ilia, manager of Internet space department, he himself, a graduate of the Mathematics Faculty from University of Bucharest.

The competition, which addresses students with skills for programming, takes place between 28th of March and 2nd of April in Prague. The team of the Mathematics and Informatics Faculty from University of Bucharest includes Cristian Grozea and Florin Manea (trainers), Angel-Stelian Proorocu, Matei Gruber and Tiberiu Danet (students).

"The undergraduate learning system in Romania is now in process of implementing IT tools in the learning process by using The Educational IT-Based System Program (SEI). We are sure that this process not only that will increase the knowledge base but also will increase the passion for developing educational software, this way contributing to the developing of programming capabilities. Last year edition of SIVECO CUP, the first national competition of educational software brought together 300 teams of pupils and teachers, and the value of their software applications determined us to buy some of them and integrate them in AEL. We have no doubt that their authors can participate in the finals of a programming contest as prestigious as ACM" declares Irina Socol, General Manager of SIVECO Romania.
