They include the University of Cyprus (UCy), the University of Technology (Tepak), the Open University Cyprus, University of Nicosia, European University Cyprus, UCLan Cyprus, Neapolis University Paphos and Frederick University of Technology.
The €400,000 in funding will enable the project to develop a business plan for the creation of the Cyprus Science and Research Centre, which would benefit Cyprus and the broader region.
CSRC will focus on the promotion of science communication, teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, through interactive tools. It aspires to become a Center of Excellence in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean, for improving research, innovation and entrepreneurial culture in the areas of technology, especially the technology for teaching and learning in science and the innovative communication of scientific achievements.
