Center of Excellence in Risk and Decision Sciences (CERIDES) – European University Cyprus
Research Organisation – Cyprus
CERIDES has emerged from the synergies that have been identified between the Center for Risk, Safety and the Environment (CERISE), and the Decision Support and Systems Optimization (DSSO) Laboratory and operates under the auspices of European University Cyprus. It is the first cross-disciplinary, cross-school Center of Excellence of European University Cyprus.
The areas of focus revolve around two basic pillars; risk and decision science with an application to several horizontal areas such as Security, Safety, Cybersecurity, Telecommunications, Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Industrial Processes.
Role in the Project: Having been involved as technological provider and as coordinator in many European and national research projects (H2020, MCSA, DG ECHO, FP7, DG HOME, DG JUSTICE), CERIDES is the Project Coordinator of METICOS and, apart from that, is involved in exploitation and dissemination tasks.
