The University of Cyprus (UCY) is delighted to join ERCIM as its 19th member. UCY is represented in ERCIM by both the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering through the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering respectively. Dedicated to producing and promoting high-end research, UCY strives to establish a position at the forefront of European research. In that respect, participation in ERCIM is expected to further enhance the strong links that UCY has with other European academic and research institutions.

With the first general assembly of the ERCIM association (AISBL - association internationale sans but lucratif; international not-for-profit association) in Trondheim, Norway, 10 June 2011, ERCIM has accomplished a major organisational restructuring. An important change in ERCIM’s membership policy is coinciding with the creation of ERCIM AISBL. ERCIM is now open to multiple members per country while retaining its membership criteria of excellence and active participation. The aim is to build a strong European community of research organisations to promote science, research and innovation.
