The Cyprus Institute


The Energy, Environment and Water Research Center (EEWRC) was established in December 2007 as the first Research Center of The Cyprus Institute. The Center works in close collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation (RPF) and many national institutions and organizations in Cyprus and the region.

Research at EEWRC deals with societally relevant issues related to energy, environment, climate and water. EEWRC's overarching mission is the understanding of and preparing for the major challenges and changes in the environment, socio-economic structures and societies in the Eastern Mediterranean in the 21st century. Problems of national and regional importance and global significance are addressed with an emphasis on their specific regional, Eastern Mediterranean manifestations.
