Partners in Education
The Start-Up Center powered by Microsoft is located on campus and forms the evolution of the long standing Microsoft Innovation Center. It serves as a source of funding and support fostering partnerships between entrepreneurs and initiators in the broader region and is open to students, faculty, researchers, IT professionals and investors. It assists tech-entrepreneurs by supporting and refining their ideas, ultimately helping to bring those ideas to the market by providing the necessary networking and resources. Drawing on the University’s existing strong foundation as a center of research and knowledge transfer and as an incubator and accelerator for industry solutions, the Center plays a vital role in generating powerful ideas and implementing new solutions that both inspire and ensure sustainable economic growth.
More specifically, in November 2016, the Hellenic Business Administration Company, and the European University of Cyprus signed a Memorandum of Understanding, with which they agreed to cooperate closely in order to offer quality and specialized services that will meet the requirements of the economic environment of both Greece and Cyprus. Greater emphasis will be given, on the following pillars; Education, Leadership Development and Promotion of Business Excellence.
In recognition of the important role undertaken by European University Cyprus in creating a common European higher education area, leading Greek Universities have joined forces with it through agreements of strategic collaboration. Such interdisciplinary collaborations aim, inter alia, at the establishment of joint/dual degrees, the design of joint research programs, transfer of knowledge, exchange of students and scientific and administrative personnel, the organization of scientific meetings (conferences, one-day events, symposia) and joint supervision of doctoral theses.
