Guided by our principles for emphasis on collaboration, networking, diversity and serving Cyprus and beyond, C4E participates in European Programs and Projects. This also allows us to attract further funding and other recourses to develop our core and other activities.

Our main criterion for partnering up with other institutions from Cyprus, Europe, Middle East, Asia etc is the added value of our participation and the overall quality of the consortium. We are proud to have been part of proposals under Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Interreg, Cross Border Collaboration Greece-Cyprus, ENPI, BalkabMed etc.
