UCLan Cyprus is committed to being innovative and entrepreneurial in its approach to teaching, training, research and knowledge transfer, in order to enrich the University’s academic learning environment, enable it to develop high value-added training initiatives, advance in innovation and promote high impact research investigations. This will allow the University to enhance its contribution to social, cultural and economic development, both locally and internationally. As a research-led University, research and innovation is pursued via engagement with other research institutions and universities, industry, professions, government agencies, social enterprises and third sector stakeholders.
