PARTNERS / Cyprus University of Technology

Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) is an established public university, which was founded by law on December 2003. It is one of three state universities in Cyprus. Cyprus University of Technology is a dynamic university with six leading schools/faculties and 10 academic departments, able to offer education and high level research, in primary branches of science and applied technology, at Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. Currently CUT runs a number of master courses including a Masters in Environmental Health (in English) in collaboration with Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).

Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) has as its strategic target the design and development of research activities both within the University and in cooperation with other research Institutes in Cyprus and abroad. The research emphasis of CUT is reflected in the substantial funding provided to academics for the establishment of research centres and laboratories. CUT aims at transferring knowledge (education) and producing new knowledge through basic and applied research in all the academic fields of the University’s six Faculties. Research is carried out in each different Department or between two or more Departments, under the responsibility of one or more members of the academic staff. University research activities are realized through funding secured from two major sources: from the University’s state funded budget and from different organizations, entities or private sources at national, European and international level who award, with or without a competition, specific research projects to research groups and/or individual members of the Academic staff. Strengthening of the research management support and infrastructure, with the aim of securing externally funded projects, is another major objective of the University.  Moreover, the University has adopted principles in relation to research which conform with the European Union’s declarations relating to the creation of the European Research Area (ERA).

CUT research and academic staff is involved in various Research Activities and National and European Research Programmes. CUT has managed to dispose of a significant number, of National Research Projects funded by the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation and of European Research Projects funded under the European Research Framework Programmes (FP6, FP7, HORIZON2020), the LIFE and IEE Programmes, the European Territorial Cooperation Programmes and other. In details, CUT research and academic staff is involved in 150 Projects with a total funding/contribution over than 18 million Euro.
