As part of IDAL’s strategy to support the growth of the ICT sector and improve its competitive advantages, IDAL partnered with the UNDP’s TOKTEN project “Transfer of Knowledge Through Expatiates Nationals” and the Ministry of Economy, and Berytech, to provide mentorship to selected companies operating in the field of applied sciences and software.  This is part of a series of mentoring sessions that the group mentioned above is planning to organize within the coming year. The 1st mentorship session took place with Steven Bathiche, currently Director of Research at Microsoft Corp.'s Applied Sciences Group,

The session took place on February 16, at Berytech.

During the mentorship session,  Steven Bathiche talked about his experience in Microsoft Corp. and introduced the new strategic trends in IT and shed lights on projects that Microsoft is currently working on.
