The European Researchers’ Night celebrating research, innovation and science is organized in Cyprus since 2006 by the Research and Innovation Foundation (RIF), as an initiative of the European Commission, which is funded through the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) of the EU’s Framework-Programme for Research and Innovation. The main objective of the Researchers’ Night event is to nurture a research and innovation culture and raise awareness with regards to the research activity implemented by universities, research centres and innovative companies.
