Cyprus’ role in the global space community is being redefined amid anticipated announcements

Α significant announcement in the field of space research and exploration is expected to be made at the inauguration ceremony of the Cyprus Space Research and Innovation Centre (C-SpaRC) in Nicosia.

It also promises to not only advance scientific knowledge but also to stimulate economic growth and technological innovation in Cyprus. With its strategic location and burgeoning space capabilities, Cyprus is poised to become a hub for international space collaboration, the sources said.

The inauguration event is taking place under the auspices of the Chief Scientist of Cyprus.
