Research at EEWRC deals with societally relevant issues related to energy, environment, climate and water. EEWRC's overarching mission is the understanding of and preparing for the major challenges and changes in the environment, socio-economic structures and societies in the Eastern Mediterranean in the 21st century.

Problems of national and regional importance and global significance are addressed with an emphasis on their specific regional, Eastern Mediterranean manifestations.

The Center strives to reach the highest standards of excellence and is increasingly recognized as a significant scientific resource for the region.

Collaboration and exploitation of synergistic potentials with other CyI research centers represents a guiding principle of our work, cooperation and partnerships with national, international and European institutions forms an integral part of our activities.

The Science and Technology in Archaeology Research Center (STARC) of The Cyprus Institute is devoted to the development, introduction and use of advanced science and technologies in the field of archaeology, cultural heritage and history of the region.

Research scientists and doctoral students, often in partnership with national or international research organizations, utilize physical and chemical measurements with sophisticated instruments in a fixed and mobile laboratory to participate in collaborative research in Cyprus, the Eastern Mediterranean and Europe.

They also take advantage of high performance computing capabilities hosted at The Cyprus Institute to perform research requiring intensive computing or data storage and management.

New perspectives on archaeological and cultural heritage in the region are achieved through strong collaboration with research in climate, environment and unmanned aircraft at The Cyprus Institute.

The Cyprus Institute is developing a Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC) that includes a Tier-1 high-performance computing (HPC) facility.

CaSToRC aspires to cultivate the use of high performance computing in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region and to serve the needs for HPC and data intensive computing in fields such as climate and environmental modeling, fluid dynamics and heat transfer, high-energy and plasma physics, materials science, chemistry, 3D visualization, computational biology and financial and economic modeling.

A very important component in the planning of CaSToRC is the development of research activities and educational programs in computational science and engineering.
