Avetikyan Consulting

German Armenian Digital Cooperation


Our goal

The ultimate goal of AVETIKYAN CONSULTING is to find experienced programmers for German companies and contract research organizations. Meanwhile, the German-Armenian digital cooperation does not only aim to support the German companies and CROs. The programmers from Armenia get a chance to work for German companies with very good conditions, gain further experience and get new perspectives about their area of specialization.

Why Armenia

The Armenian government offers tax exemption to companies operating in the fields of data analysis and programming.  In result there is an upsurge of IT startups that benefit from the minimum tax requirement. This also makes salary negotiations with Armenian programmers very lucrative for German companies. Over 31% of IT specialists in Armenia work for international organizations (2017 estimate). More than 50% of the investments in IT sector in Armenia are from the EU, the USA and Canada.

German Armenian relationship

German Armenian relationship in the era of digitalization and information technologies has a huge potential and the goal of AVETIKYAN CONSULTING is to contribute to the enhancement and the expansion of this cooperation.

German Armenian Cooperation

When the then German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Armenia in August 2018, she was impressed by the innovative spirit pervading the country. She acknowledged the state-of-the-art IT solutions, the strong potential and the efficacy of the TUMO center that she visited and expressed intention to open a branch of it in Germany. The idea turned into a project and the branch of the center came into being in Berlin in 2020. The first major milestone preceding Merkel’s visit was the cooperation between the Fraunhofer IPK and the Armenian Institute Matenadaran. The cooperation of the Armenian government with the German company started in 2016 within the frames of the digitization and virtual recovery program of the ancient and medieval manuscripts.
