Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease of the articular cartilage and the most common form of arthritis that causes joint pain, mobility limitation and, thus, reduces independence and overall quality of life. Although the usual population associated with the condition is the elderly (65 years old ranges from 12- 30%), who are mostly inactive, athletes […]
Establish in Cyprus a Science and Research Center to:
a. Undertake competitive interdisciplinary research of excellence for the development of innovative tools and exhibits for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) Education and Science Communication.
b. Promote science literacy and capacity building through informal STEAM Education using interactive Science Technology and Engineering (STE) exhibits, demonstrations and […]
This networking project explores the impact of the current financial crisis on the interconnected spheres of media representation, everyday life and popular responses in different parts of Europe, specifically: UK, Ireland, Bulgaria, Greece and Cyprus. Workshops will be organised in each. Central questions include: how do people live the crisis? How are media representations […]
Primary care is the first level of professional care where people present their health problems and where the majority of the population’s curative and preventive health needs are satisfied. Therefore primary care services should be available close to where people are living with no obstacles to access. Primary care is generalist care, […]
This project aims to effect a change across Europe in the teaching and learning of mathematics and science by supporting teachers to develop inquiry-based learning (IBL) pedagogies so that, in turn, students gain firsthand experience of scientific inquiry. Ultimately, our objective is that a greater number of students will have a more positive disposition […]
mascil (mathematics and science for life) aims to promote a widespread use of inquiry-based science teaching (IBST) in primary and secondary schools. In addition, we plan to connect mathematics and science education to the world of work.
In a classroom where inquiry-based learning occurs, students take an active role. They pose questions, explore situations, […]
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is among the leading causes of death and disability and the main cause of death among the under-45s. Most patients with moderate to severe TBI are admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) The “PROSAFE” ICU network was recently established in 6 European countries through EU funding (PHEA 2007331), and has continued […]
The key to engaging the next generation to participate in scientific issues is to change how science is taught. Students gain an image of science as a body of content whereas RRI deals with uncertain areas of knowledge is uncertain, where values and argument matter as much as facts. The shift is hugely challenging. […]
DELTA project aims at developing an innovative and ready-to-market solution that synergistically combines Networked Media and Telecommunications technologies with Cloud Computing assets into a unified digital ecosystem, enabling users to exploit OTT and Telco services with maximum possible QoE.
Enhanced understanding of human brain function by multiscale integration of primate spike, LFP and MEG dataunic_editorial2018-06-19T13:51:50+03:00
Physiological human brain function can be studied almost exclusively in a non-invasive manner, as invasive recordings from the human brain require stringent clinical indications and also because the available recordings typically stem from pathological brain tissue. However, the essence of how the brain works lies in the way that neurons self-organize in local and more […]
