Frederick University and the Cyprus Electricity Authority (EAC) have signed a memorandum of understanding with the aim of consolidating their cooperation and developing their relations.
The memorandum was signed by the rector of Frederick University, professor Giorgos Demosthenous, and the general director of the EAC Panagiotis Olympios.
The two parties will cooperate in areas of common educational, scientific, administrative and technical interest. More specifically, it was agreed to co-organise educational programmes, seminars, workshops and lectures, cooperation in the framework of research and educational programmes, innovative actions and initiatives and the exchange of staff to carry out various projects. In addition, the memorandum provides for the strengthening of scientific cooperation between the parties through the exchange of information and the provision of internship opportunities for students of the polytechnic school of the university.
“This is essentially an update of a previous memorandum of cooperation that we had with the EAC. This new, more comprehensive memorandum provides for the strengthening of our relations and our cooperation in areas of common interest. Our goal is, in the context of the broader strategic extroversion of the university, after the signing of the memorandum with the EAC, to continue with other bodies of the wider public and private sector,” the rector said.
“The goal of the EAC is to connect with recognised research and academic institutions. The organisation seeks to join forces with the scientific community and to contribute to the exchange of know-how and to the encouragement of the implementation of innovative ideas and applications,” Panagiotis Olympios stated.
