KYKEM - Cyprus Research Centre

Mission and objectives

KYKEM, established in 1983, is a non-governmental and non-profitable institute and is a pioneer in the effort to run interdisciplinary programs, employing policy solution – oriented studies.  These path-breaking studies attempt to define new dimensions to strategic policies that take account of the dramatic changes since the geopolitical crises of the 1990s as well as the growing technological input.

The main objectives of the center are: the undertaking of research on Cypriot subjects by both Cypriot and overseas researchers on a systematic basis; the organization, undertaking and conduct of research in any other branch as required by current national imperatives; the publication and dissemination of the conclusions of the research conducted; the promotion of scholarly research in Cyprus and of research co-operation with other countries.
