Several outstanding advances and innovations have been achieved through rigorous university research. The University of Cyprus has recently obtained its first patents. This is a significant achievement since the commercialization of patents and import of the technology in the global market will bring important economic benefits to the University. What is more, the inventions patented by the academic researchers at the University constitute an integral part to the progress of the science and technology in Cyprus; such achievements strengthen the economy, create new jobs and enhance the welfare of the Cypriot population.
As a result, an Ad hoc Committee has been created in order to manage the applications for patents for academic from the University of Cyprus.
