    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs Erato Kozakou Markoullis flies from Brussels to Lisbon on Friday, to represent President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos at the EU-Africa summit, to take place on December 8 and 9.

    The summit will deal with the EU-Africa Common Strategy, which will be implemented through various action plans, the first of which will be adopted by the summit and implemented during the period 2008-2010.

    Furthermore, the summit will focus on peace and security, good administration and human rights, trade and development, energy and climate changes, and immigration. The Cypriot delegation will speak on the immigration topic.


    Cyprus has submitted the largest number of proposals for research to the European Research Institute, in relation to the number of researchers, according to statistics. The majority of proposals came from young academics of the University of Cyprus (UCY).

    The Rector of the University of Cyprus Stavros Zenios said in an interview with CNA that there are currently more than 300 research projects, with a total budget of 25.9 million Cyprus pound. All these projects are financed by external funds.

    There are objective indicators on the basis of which the research productivity of a University is assessed, Zenios said, noting that external independent evaluators such as the Carnegie Foundation for Higher Education assessed the University of Cyprus as eligible to be included in the list of research universities since 2003 as the UCY completely satisfied the criteria.

    Zenios described the research productivity of the University of Cyprus as notable, adding that this demonstrates a rising trend. The average research production per year, in terms of the number of publications per member of academic staff during the period 2002-2004, was 3.53 compared to 3.11 during the period 1999-2001, indicating that the production will be even higher during the next reporting period.
