RISE is the first Research centre in Cyprus focusing on Interactive media, Smart systems and Emerging technologies aiming to become a centre of excellence empowering knowledge and technology transfer in the region. It is a joint venture between the three public universities of Cyprus (University of Cyprus, Cyprus University of Technology, Open University of Cypurs), the Municipality of Nicosia, and two renowned international partners, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (Germany) and University College London (UK).
RISE is designed to act as an integrator of academic research and industrial innovation, towards the sustainable fuelling of the scientific, technological, and economic growth of Cyprus and Europe. It sets out to meet the challenge with a total potential funding of more than 30 million Euros for the first 7 years, from the Horizon 2020 Teaming Action, and multiple other sources. The business plan of RISE is specifically tailored for long term sustainability and growth.
RISE will operate by embracing the motto “Inspired by Humans. Designed for Humans producing technologies to work “in the wild” as its guiding philosophy. Such a focus, geared towards applications and going beyond the traditional academic confines, is expected to bring direct tangible benefits to the local society, but also to ensure the prospects of an economically viable operation of the Centre.
