The Cyprus Institute is in the pleasant position to announce the launching ceremony of the competitive European Program “TEAMING” which aims to the development of a Center of Excellence in Simulation and Data Science, hosted at its premises at Athalassa Campus, on Monday 18th of September at 18:30.

This project was selected at a European level among about two hundred other programs under the European Union’s “TEAMING” action. In order to prepare a sustainable business plan, The Cyprus Institute will be in close cooperation with the biggest German computational center (Forschungszentrum Jülich) and the local partners in this project, which are the Departments of Antiquities, and Meteorology, and the Nicosia General Hospital, as well as two SMEs, Hyperion Systems Engineering, and SignalGeneriX connecting the center directly to commercial applications.

This event marks the beginning of a year-long effort aiming to engage the research communities, governmental institutions and industry to prepare a roadmap outlining the steps to be taken towards establishing this project. The upgraded Center will provide access to computing infrastructure, training, dedicated support and services to Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region.
