Cyprus University of Technology becomes member of EARMA
Nicosia, Nov 13 - The Cyprus University of Technology has become a full member of the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA). EARMA members represent public and private research organisations from over 30 countries across Europe.
The Cyprus University of Technology, based Limassol, was inaugurated early September by President Tassos Papadopoulos.
The University will be offering degrees in graduate and post graduate levels that are not offered by the University of Cyprus or by other higher education institutions. The first stage of the new University will last five to six years and the second stage provides for the construction of new premises throughout Limassol which will gradually be handed over to the University.
The University's opening ceremony was also addressed by EU Commissioner for Science and Research, Mr. Janez Potocnik.
EARMA is a non profit organization which provides services in professional development, networking, and dissemination of best practice in the field of research management. Its activities include training courses, working groups, annual conferences, staff exchanges and an interactive discussion forum. It also aims to provide a voice for research managers in European policy-making.
