Iasi is one of the university cities in Romania with the fastest developments in the IT services segment, this being one of the advantages considered by E.ON to establish here a Research, Development and Innovation Center for all the group companies at the level globally.

The average age of employed professionals is 30 years, and the company also runs internship programs to attract talented young people from the faculty’s banks.
To support medium and long-term plans, as of June, the company relocated its offices in a modern building located in the center of Iasi.
