Research at UNIC
The University of Nicosia is committed to conducting high-quality basic, applied, and interdisciplinary research that benefits society on a national and global scale. To this end, we are continually strengthening our research infrastructure and directing our focus in line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The University participates in a wide field of research, with local and international interest. Recognising that the research challenges of the future are multidisciplinary, UNIC seeks to combine the potential of multiple disciplines and synergies with other universities and research centres at the local and international level.
Indicative of this, is the University’s active participation in a variety of programmes, among which those undertaken by the European Commission regarding the future of Europe. These include numerous research and development projects under Horizon 2020, Interreg, and Erasmus+, in collaboration with major universities and research centres in Europe and beyond.
