European University Cyprus researchers at 2nd Mediterranean Science Festival

The European University Cyprus research team will actively participate, for the second year in a row, at the Mediterranean Science Festival, which will take place at the Old Port Square in Limassol from 27 – 30 April 2017.

The Mediterranean Science Festival with the central theme “Evolving with Science”, aims to take Science out of the lab and the classroom, bringing closer to the public.

Having this in mind, European University Cyprus researchers will deliver a number of engaging activities and presentations, which will both explain a scientific idea and highlight the university’s research in this area.
