Agreement between Atos and University of Opole Signed
The agreement was signed on 27 February 2018 in the Plafond Hall of Collegium Maius by Prof. Izabella Pisarek, Vice-Rector for Academic and Student Affairs, and Piotr Krzysztofik, a member of Atos Board of Directors.
- We are very satisfied with today's culmination of the earlier cooperation, - said Izabella Pisarek. - We are happy to find another partner with whom we can implement our educational projects.
- We would like to thank the University of Opole for inciting this cooperation; it is very important for us, just as Opole is important for our company - said Piotr Krzysztofik. - We think not only about business. It is important for us to build a knowledge-based society and to create jobs, and the cooperation with universities, including the University of Opole, is a priority for us. We need educated young people, and they are here.
The aim of the agreement is to bring the scientific environment into line with the business practice environment, and thus to make a better use of the resources and the potential of the contractual partners.
The agreement includes, among other things, consultancy and consultations on the creation of study programmes and internship programmes at the Faculty of Philology and the Faculty of Economics, providing substantive patronage over scientific conferences organized by the faculties, and enabling students to do placements at the headquarters of Atos.
The University, in turn, undertook, inter alia, to grant Atos the title of a business partner, provided a possibility to participate in scientific conferences, seminars, and to present the company on the premises of the UO.
Atos is an international leader in digital transformation. Thanks to its presence in 72 countries, it offers customers expert services of the highest quality and global dimension. - We also provide IT solutions based on modern technologies. Our ambition is to unite people with technology and business - says the company's management.
