The origin of the name Pazirik
Our company’s name was born from our great interest towards history. Pazyryk culture got to be known around the world relatively lately: the first graves have been found by Russian archaeologist Sergei Ivanovich Rudenko in the beginning of the 20. century.
The name of Altai according to one interpretation means brindle, colorful mountains. Every valley is different, so because of this the land has always been very colorful from an ethnical aspect also. It has been inhabited from the earliest periods: it is here where lately one of the most important anthropological find from the Paleolithic period has been found and got to be world famous – a couple of bones belonging to a hominide not yet known before. The Altai though kept further fascinating finds for the world to behold – in the image of the Scythian people. The local group of the huge Eurasian culture is called Pazyryk after the digging site where the first perfectly preserved frozen prince tombs from the 6th and 3rd centuries BC have been found in the 1920s by Russian archaeologists. Here we’re not speaking about the eternal realm of ice, but another not yet unscrambled phenomenon, when underground at a certain depth a so called ice-cork is formed in the stone laid kurgan tomb. These ice-corks preserved the burials of the Pazyryk culture for over 2500 years. The dead have been buried in a spacious wooden chamber made cozy by rugs ornamented with colorful scenes – at many occasions along with horses and carriages.
Polosmak claims that the tattoos at that time functioned as some kind of ID card, like a passport. The Pazyryks thought that the tattoos would help them on to the afterlife, where the family members would find one another easier.
The Pazirik (written in Hungarian) Informatics Ltd. logo is also depicting such a fantastic beast that was often drawn with a pair of legs touching the ground while another pair kicking into the sky symbolizing the strong mystical bond between the sky and the earth.
An IT company dealing with development of 3D historic reconstructions, historic animated movies and interactive content related to theoretical reconstructions, information terminals and mobile applications.
Pazirik Ltd. is an IT enterprise disposing of various activities utilized in numerous tender projects requiring complex realization in the past years and today as well.

EMPLOYEES OF PAZIRIK INFORMATICS LTD. HAVE PARTICIPATED IN A COMPLEX TRAINING FINACED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION
Pazirik Informatics Ltd. has successfully closed the extensive development project accomplished within the confines of the tender with the code GOP-3.3.4-15. The employees of the enterprise gained opportunity to get to know the Horizont 2020 program, and to get prepared needed for the participation in the Horizont 2020 program tender announcements. Pazirik Informatics Ltd. has had resort to innovation consultation along the project materialized with an EU subsidy of 10,74 million Forints.
Along the materialization of the project the employees of Pazirik Informatics Ltd. were prepared within the confines of a complex training, including about the possibilities of accessing the direct sources from Brussels. Besides, identifying, analyzing and the filtration of the subject ideas that may be considered by the company according to H2020, the so far largest research-development and innovation resource budget of the EU have also happened, and planning and preparing the materialization of potential H2020 tender ideas also ran their course.
We intend to open towards the international possibilities using the achievements of developments materialized along the project in favor of appearing in the new markets.
We have accomplished the Pic and HITA registration in order to reach our goals, furthermore our highlighted projects became presentable thanks to the constant development of our homepage, information about these is already accessible in English.
We have raised the ability of surveying the internal resources, determining the strategic development directions and configuring the international cooperation, with the project to a new level.
