The culmination of years of research and innovation achievements of RISE's five academic partners (UCL, MPI, UCY, CUT and OUC) is the seed for RISE to achieve internationally recognized scientific excellence, and maximize its economic and societal impact.

UCL and MPI have been two of the most prominent organizations leading science internationally, while the three Cypriot public universities have been the forerunners of most of the scientific and technical achievements in the Republic of Cyprus.

Collectively, hundreds of research projects have been completed by the RISE founding institutions. We are proud to present you some of these projects here. We invite you to envisage the possibilities opening for the Cypriot academia, businesses and society and sharing with us the drive to join forces and make the RISE Research Centre reality.
