By June 19, 2019 No Comments

A brilliant discussion took place last week organised by the Oxford University Society Cyprus, Six distinguished panellists gave their positions and vision on how do they see “Research, Innovation & Entrepreneurship in Cyprus” in 2020 and beyond. A few highlights from the discussion: Culture is a primary factor; Success stories & failure stories should be brought to the surface; The ‘impatient generation’ should be willing to take more risk to become more innovative; Funding should go in projects and in companies as well; We need to retain talent in Cyprus; We should all work together to transform our success in the Research area to more benefit in the real economy;
Finally, we now expect a faster – geometrical pace of developments in the innovation & entrepreneurship arena, since we now have in place the National Chief Scientist and the National Council for Research and Innovation.
