The overarching objective of this project is to create a research group in “Modelling and Simulation for Engineering Applications”, which is currently missing from CaSToRC, thereby complementing the research spectrum of the centre. This can be subdivided into the following specific objectives:
  1. Attract an international caliber researcher that will lead CaSToRC in its pursuit to incorporate the computational engineering component in its arsenal, while creating a top tier research team.
  2. Expand the collaboration net of CaSToRC and pave the path for the creation of new networks, thereby establishing CaSToRC in the international scientific community.
  3. Better integrate CaSToRC in Cypriot society by being a player in the execution of the Smart Specialization Strategy (S3Cy) and by enabling industry links to establish itself as a player in that sector of the economy.
  4. Update and supplement the curriculum of the accredited MSc and PhD programs, were appropriate. This will lead to the training of more capable and innovating scientists.
  5. Establish CaSToRC as a big player in the Mediterranean and international game for advanced computing and its applications.
