The Protocol of the Alliance of Cooperation was signed by Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC) President Captain Eugen Adami and the Rector of the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) Dr. Elpida Keravnou-Papailiou. The alliance aims to facilitate the further strengthening of the already existing cooperation, the further development of new innovative technologies and accomplished human resources, and the further development and enhancement of Cyprus as an all embracing international maritime centre of excellence.
As part of the alliance, both parties have agreed to cooperate in fields such as students’ practical orientation learning experience, maritime training and education, research and development, information exchange and knowledge sharing, as well as joint public relations activities. In particular, one of the first areas for collaboration will be to examine the possibility of the establishment and development of a Marine Engineering Department, which will boost the University’s image and may also act as a catalyst for students to choose a career in shipping.
