The “Armenia Engineering Week” will conclude on 28 June, 2019, at Vanadzor Technology Center where discussion on results of the Week with participation of experts and representatives of public and private sector, as well as engineering solutions expo and best start-up showcase will be held.
“These kinds of events are important as they position Armenia as a country offering complex and complete engineering solutions. Especially in this stage of founding Engineering City, it is more than important to bring to Armenia specialists from abroad to discuss the latest developments of the technological sector and ways to implement them.
