Research & Innovation

Message by the Vice Rector

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of European University Cyprus. The mission of our university is to provide first class education to young people from around the world, carry out pioneering research in a very diverse range of disciplines and serve the community in Cyprus. 

European University Cyprus is a relatively new university which was founded in 2007. It is however the evolution of Cyprus College which has been at the academic scene in Cyprus since 1961, only a year after independence. Our university is now part of the Laureate International Universities network with more than 85 partner institutions around the world and about 1 million students. Despite its young age our university has already produced excellent research work and is already one of the leading academic institutions on the island.

An ever increasing number of our faculty collaborate with scientists from some of the finest universities in the world (Harvard, Oxford, Imperial College London, Cambridge, University College London, King’s College London, Queen Mary, University of London to name a few) and coordinate or participate in a number of prestigious projects funded by the European Commission and the Research Promotion Foundation here in Cyprus.

Our faculty members have already made a significant contribution in a very diverse range of disciplines that range from Computer Science, to Natural Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Health Sciences, Education, Social Sciences, Business and Management. The research activity of the university is spread across its schools and departments and a number of research centers and units have been established.
