Cyprus University Of Technology
The Cyprus University of Technology is a state university, situated in the city of Limassol. Most of its premises consist of neoclassical buildings that underwent severe renovation. The first 360 students commenced their studies on September the 3rd 2007 and numbers are expected to gradually rise up to 7000-8000 in the next ten to fifteen years. The Cyprus University of Technology 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 centers and laboratories. The University, despite its recent beginning (Sept. 2007), has already established its participation in national and European projects (6th and 7th FP).
CUT research and academic staff is involved in various Research activities and Research Programmes. These cover both internal and external research funding. Research Programmes are financed by CUT, the Cyprus Government (Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation) and the European Committee (FP) and other organizations as well.
