The Center for Applied Neuroscience and the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence aim for a mutual collaboration with other organizations in developing a product within the scope of AAL for the elderly. Both centers operate within the University of Cyprus.

The Center for Applied Neuroscience (CAN) was established in 2011 following the award of an infrastructure grant from the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation (through European and National funding) and co-funding from the University of Cyprus. It is the only center of its kind in Cyprus investigating high incidence neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders through the application of integrative and contemporary methodologies. One of the main projects of the CAN is an ongoing systematic research program, initially funded by the Cyprus Research Promotion foundation and with subsequent EU funding, exploring neurobehavioral performance, health indices, biological markers, and quality of life issues in Greek-Cypriots throughout Cyprus, over 60 years old

The KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (KIOS CoE) was selected by the EU to advance into a Research and Innovation Center of Excellence in 2017. With collaboration with Imperial College London, KIOS has succeeded in securing funding in excess of 40 million euros for the period of 2017-2022. This is the largest and most competitive funding to be secured for research and innovation in Cyprus which will be implemented as part of the EU’s strategic Horizon 2020 program for “Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation – Teaming”.

The KIOS CoE is the largest research and innovation center in Cyprus on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) with an emphasis on monitoring, control, management and security of critical infrastructures such as electric power systems, water distribution networks, telecommunication networks, and transportation systems. The goal of the Center is to conduct outstanding interdisciplinary research and innovation and produce new knowledge and tools that can be applied to solve real-life problems
