We are very happy to report the official confirmation from DG Humanitarian Aid of the the 1st European-level project of the newly launched Center of Excellence in Risk and Decision Sciences (CERIDES).

Project details: EPICURO – European Partnership for Innovative Cities within an Urban Resilience Outlook is a Euro 900,000 – 24 month project aiming to promote the sharing of good practices in urban prevention and facilitate the access to specific knowledge and expertise on the issue of climate change adaptation, by involving a multi-actor partnership represented by active actors at European level which are cooperating and working on the enhancement of urban resilience and can therefore bring visible added value to the debate and to the solution development process. EUC’s budget on this is approximately Euro 90,000.  10 Partners (Municipality of Vicenza  – IT, City of Skopje – FYROM,  Provincia di Potenza – IT, City of Vejle – DK, Ekodoma – LV, City of Salaspils – LV, EPC srl – IT,  TCPA – UK, Municipality of Alba Iulia – RO and EUC – CY) take part in this project.

CERIDES was launched earlier this year as the first Center of Excellence of European University Cyprus. It currently participates in the implementation of a significant number of European-level research projects through its constituent laboratories CERISE and DSSO. CERIDES has established a network of industrial partners, one which is growing very rapidly. Through its funding, CERIDES already employs a number of Research Associates, working full-time on the Center’s research projects.

For full information about the Center’s activities, Please visit the beta version of our newly launched official website. The website was developed by DCSE students Mr. George Patsias and Mr. Stefanos Vasilaras who are currently working as CERIDES interns, with the invaluable assistance of CERIDES academic member Mr. Pericles Cheng.
