The driving force behind this proposal is to provide a key instrument to assist in and facilitate the scientific and economic growth of Cyprus. This instrument will come in the form of a Centre that combines research and innovation competence. On the one hand, the Centre will strive for high quality research, in line with international standards of excellence, while on the other hand, it will direct its research focus towards areas that can serve the technological needs as identified by the Smart Specialisation Strategy of the country, and encourage the development and use of new high-tech products by businesses.
