For twelve years in a row the General Partner of the event is Viva-MTS.

The scientist, who holds 13 patents for inventions in electronic design automation, visited Viva-MTS to take part in the press conference and to exchange ideas.

The rich professional biography of Dr. Stok was presented by the President of “Synopsis Armenia” Yervand Zorian. Dr. Stok’s main contribution is the creation of innovative chips for IBM products, such as the research and development in Automation, Robotics, Artificial intelligence, Cloud computing, Consulting, Block-chain, Computer hardware, Software, Quantum Computing. Those are the competitive advantages of IBM in the markets of cloud technologies, data analysis, mobile, social and security systems. The research and development done by Dr. Stok’s team in world-class lines and software tools are used in design and control and are applied in supercomputers such IBM Z and Power, as well as the design of IBM Quantum systems. “This award ceremony plays an important role in fixing Armenia's clear place on the technological map of the world. The visit of the first persons of such giant companies to Armenia contributes to the promotion of significant investments in our country and the establishment of business partnerships", concluded Yervand Zoryan.

“In our everyday life, we often do not feel that the world we live in, with all its civilizational achievements, owes to the inventions of specific individuals and the popularization of these inventions. Mr. Stock is one of those people. It is no coincidence that the RA State Award partner is a subsidiary of MTS. Telecommunication is a business that can unite, create great opportunities and create demand for applied scientific development, technological and IT solutions, media, business development, human development and facilitating peoples’ daily life.

I’m impressed with the talent that I see in Armenia and the excitement that I feel during my every meeting. I want to thank Viva-MTS for sponsoring this award and for hosting us today. Telecommunications plays a huge role in nowadays technological world and I’m excited to see such an advanced company in Armenia. On Monday I visited Synopsis Armenia educational department and I was surprised to find students and the faculty developing three nanometers process design kits. These are some of the most advanced technologies in the world and it’s great that students in Armenia are able to provide three nanometers process design kitscase for the students of the rest of the world to use”, - Dr. Leon Stock said.  

"I would like to thank you for organizing and implementing the event of the RA State Award for global investment in the IT sector at a high level. It will certainly be a serious stimulus to strengthen and increase Armenia's place and role in the global IT sector. Among other important targets, the award is aimed at creating and spreading the image of an accomplished and successful specialist in the field of ICT among young people. There are a lot of promising young people in Armenia who will be excited by the success of the laureates of this award and will choose ICT as their future profession following their example," said RA Deputy Minister of High-Tech Industry Davit Sahakyan.
