The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING) puts Cyprus on the map when it comes to research productivity, according to the scientific magazine Nature.
“Despite Cyprus’ small population, researchers of the island are at the top in productivity and compete with their colleagues from western European countries like the U.K. and Germany,” the magazine said in its Nature Global Index 2014.
Despite the fact that the history of research in Cyprus is small, the magazine said, at the CING on average 40 research programmes take place annually with their total funding amounting to €7 million.
“So far, CING’s scientists have developed three patents that create prospects for growth and entrepreneurship, projecting the institute and Cyprus internationally,” the magazine said.
