Overview

European University Cyprus has its roots in Cyprus College, which was founded in 1961. Today EUC is a modern university, operating five Schools, namely, the School of Humanities, Social and Education Sciences, the School of Business Administration, the School of Sciences, the Medical School, and the School of Law. The University hosts a diverse and dynamic research community with experienced researchers, including Nobel Laureates Professor Robert Huber (Chemistry, 1988) and Professor Ada Yonath (Chemistry, 2009). European University Cyprus is actively engaged with local, regional and global partners to promote opportunities for long-term strategic research partnerships and innovative programs of study. The mission of the university is to educate students for successful careers and life achievement, to understand and serve the needs of society, and to create knowledge through research and innovation. During the last decade, the University has developed an intense research activity in a wide spectrum of ICT, Health, and Socioeconomic Sciences and Humanities through coordination or participation in national, international and European Union-funded research programs. Sources of funding for research conducted by faculty members include Horizon 2020, 7th Framework Program, Erasmus+, Life-Long Learning 2007-2013, Directorates General of the European Commission, the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation, United Nations, governmental bodies and others. The university is one of the 400 organizations in Europe that have been awarded the EU's 'HR Excellence in Research' badge.

 

It is anticipated that a number of EUC Schools and Departments will be actively involved in the proposed project including the School of Education Sciences, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, the Department of Life Sciences and the School of Medicine.
