The European Commission has awarded European University Cyprus (EUC) one of the most prestigious international awards, recognizing its contribution to research excellence. The “HR Excellence in Research Logo”, awarded following a thorough analysis of European University Cyprus HR policies that provide and support a stimulating and favourable working environment for researchers.
The award, granted following an assessment by the Commission, places the university among the leading 392 global academic institutions authorized to display the logo, including the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Oslo and others.
According to Rector Kostas Gouliamos the award “exemplifies and proves the high quality research expertise, innovation and services offered by European University Cyprus in a highly competitive environment both within and outside the European Union”. Vice-Rector Andreas Efstathiou remarked the award recognizes the favourable working conditions offered by the university to its researchers and pledged to improve these further so as to make the university a key attraction for researchers from the region and Europe.
Rector Gouliamos further underlined that “European University Cyprus has top researchers cooperating with public and private organisations, as well as important academic institutions abroad, increasing the development dynamic, as well as creating added value both for the university and for Cyprus itself”.
