Government actively supports the Cyprus Academy of Sciences, Letters and Arts, President says

The Government will actively support the Cyprus Academy of Sciences, Letters and Arts in its efforts for active and substantial participation and contribution to the whole spectrum of society, President Nikos Christodoulides has said.

He was addressing a 12 December meeting of the Cyprus Academy at the Presidential Palace, in Nicosia. President Christodoulides congratulated the recipients of the Academy's awards, noting that they set an example for the new generation.

President Christodoulides said that Cyprus' highest intellectual institution in Science, Letters and Arts, as the home of the most distinguished Cypriot scientists, scholars and artists, has undertaken to promote intellectual and scientific creation and to transform it into actions and deeds.

He added that at the same time, with its multi-faceted activity, the Academy aims, among other things, to recognise, promote and reward excellence, to support education in its entirety, to preserve and promote our intellectual and cultural heritage, to promote and develop research and innovation, as well as to provide scientifically validated knowledge and information to find solutions to today's social challenges and needs.

The President said that earlier he had a very productive meeting with the members of the Cyprus Academy of Sciences, Letters and Arts. "We agreed on four priority areas in Health, Education, Digital Transformation and the Green Transition of our country in which we will work with the Academy to achieve these goals that are above all relevant to Cypriot society," he said.

The President also assured that both he personally and the Government will actively support and accompany the Academy in its efforts for active and meaningful participation and contribution to the whole spectrum of society.

He also noted that this year, the Academy rightly awards the 2023 Republic of Cyprus Award to Kyriakos Athanasiou, the distinguished Cypriot Mechanical Engineer, specializing in Biomedical Engineering.

The President of the Republic announced that from this year, the Academy has established another award, which is given to Valentinos Charalambous and Professor Christos Hadjichristodoulou.

He also noted that at the same time, Ioanna Avraam's artistic activity in the development of the art of dance, as well as her distinguished professional career at the Vienna State Ballet, fully justify the awarding of the Young Artist Award, which the Academy has decided to establish, also from this year.
