Dear friends,

RISE proposes to be the first Research Centre in Cyprus aiming for scientific excellence that can foster innovation and have a real societal impact.  Our goal is not just to excel in science, but also to create jobs, help small and medium enterprises compete internationally and prosper.  In contrast to other research and innovation centres, this institution is being designed to be inclusive and open to everyone.  We want to inspire and motivate!

As an integrator of academic research and industrial innovation, RISE will closely collaborate with both businesses and academic institutions to solve real-life problems and engage in technology transfer activities. From the onset, RISE will support technology and innovation start-ups, and entrepreneurs, by offering scientific know-how, access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. It will nurture new ideas and hatch creative collaborations.

We are now reaching out to meet you and learn your needs!  We are asking you to get involved!!  Your involvement will help us design a Centre of Excellence that meets the needs of tomorrow’s innovators.

Please take a few minutes and give us your feedback at the following link.


Your feedback will play a role in making RISE a reality and a success for Cyprus and Europe.
