CARE-C at Reflect festival!

Members of CARE-C at the Cyprus Institute, have successfully participated in the 2023 Reflect Festival, held in Limassol on 20- 21 September 2023, with a dedicated booth alongside other Institute colleagues from different departments, as well as a 20-minute talk by the Centre’s Director Prof Jean Sciare.

During the festival, the CARE-C communication team and members of the Unmanned Systems Research Laboratory (USRL) had the opportunity to discuss with different festival participants from a wide range of sectors and backgrounds, about the cutting-edge research and innovation the Centre in general, and USRL more specifically do, through the development of innovative technologies such as drones, which can assist in fire prevention, among other uses. Additionally, on Day 2, CARE-C Director, Prof. Jean Sciare, delivered a compelling talk on the topic of ‘Addressing Devastating Wildfires: Can Technology Make a Difference?’.

The Reflect Festival is one of the largest technology, innovation, and business festivals in Cyprus and offers a dynamic environment that encourages cross-disciplinary dialogue, creative thinking, and networking opportunities with experts and enthusiasts from various fields, and it has provided a great platform for showcasing the Centre’s contribution to research and innovation as well as establishing meaningful connections and expanding the Centre’s network.

CARE-C presence at the Reflect Festival was supported by the EMME-CARE project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 856612 and the Cyprus Government.
