UCy's campus

Non-governmental organisation (NGO) Cyprus Seeds, whose mission is to support the commercialisation of innovative academic research in universities and research institutions in Cyprus, will be accepting applications for funding from all the universities and research centres in Cyprus.

The call for proposals will be officially sent out on April 8.

“Eligible for the Cyprus Seeds programme are researchers (post docs and PhD students) together with academics from any university (public or private) and research institutions in Cyprus whose research work has the potential to transit from the lab to the marketplace,” said the NGO in a statement.

Interested applicants are required to submit a written pre-proposal which will be evaluated by foreign, experienced experts in the relevant field.

Only the groups to be selected on the basis of their pre-proposal application, will be eligible to submit full proposal application.

The deadline for submitting the pre-proposals applications is May 10.

Cyprus Seeds announced its first call in March 2019 and received 40 applications from universities and research institutions in Cyprus.

Seven projects were selected for funding and support, three were from the University of Cyprus, two from the Cyprus University of Technology and two from the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics.
