Cyprus Economic Observatory
The Cyprus Economic Observatory is the online portal of the Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance of the Ioannis Gregoriou School of Business Administration. The online portal was established under the commitment of the European University Cyprus to disseminate more broadly the high quality research that focuses on issues relating to Cyprus.
The aim of the online portal is to act a focal point were academic research, economic policy and mass communication interact in order to provide fresh insights to all fields. Research that remained “locked-up” in the world of academia and does not percolate to society might lose its impact; likewise societal decision making not being informed through academic discourse might lead a nation to misadventures.
