  • [01] President Anastasiades speaks on shipping at UCL

    Shipping in Cyprus has evolved radically in the past 20 years to meet international regulations on safety at sea and on the prevention of pollution, the President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades said in his address on "The evolution of the shipping law" to the Faculty of Law at UCL (University College London), during his visit to the British capital.

    Tonight the President will address an audience at the London School of Economics (LSE) on the geostrategic importance of Cyprus.

    In his speech at UCL, where he obtained his Master's degree in maritime law, the President made specific reference to the two areas of international shipping that have evolved radically in the past 20 years, that is matters relating to safety of life at sea and the prevention of pollution from ships.

    The new EU funding programme for Research and Innovation «Horizon 2020» running from 2014 to 2020 with a €80 billion budget was presented here on Thursday by the Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science Marie Geoghegan-Quinn.

    Speaking at the Official Launch of «Horizon 2020» in Cyprus, in the presence of Minister of Labour and Social Insurance, Zeta Emilianidou, the Commissioner noted that the programme presents huge opportunities for Cyprus, adding that research and innovation could be a tool to halt the financial crisis through the development of innovative products and services and job creation.

    The key is the collaboration between business and academia, she said. "We need them working hand in hand if we are going to develop positive economic results".
