Research and Technological Development (RTD)

​Within EAC’s efforts to achieve an effective and, at the same time, viable development is the applied scientific research. Scientific research is the foundation block for the creation of innovative and competitive technologies and methodologies. EAC research and development activities have already reached a mature stage with significant success regarding the submission and succesful evaluation of scientific research proposals. This success was based on the sufficient know-how and experience of EAC scientific personnel. Through the ongoing participation of EAC in research programs, EAC achieves the partnerships with other technical institutions and research centres, the acquisition of useful experiences and the exchange of knowledge in specialized topics such as, environmental management, renewable energy sources, distributed generation, etc. This results in the development of management abilities regarding new technologies and the acquisition of experiences for the benefit of the Cyprus society.
