Research Hosting/Research partnerships

The Cyprus Interaction Lab (CIL) of the Cyprus University of Technology is happy to discuss your project idea and act as the Host or a Partner for proposals you might plan to submit to the HORIZON 2020 or other national (e.g. IPE) or international funding programs.

The Research Hosting program allows researchers and practitioners in the area of Human Computer Interaction and Instructional Technology to host their projects at the CIL Lab and get full access to its facilities and equipment for the purpose of completing their project.

The Research Hosting/Research partner program aims to encourage collaboration between CIL and other researchers in Cyprus or from around the world and to promote research in the following areas:

  • Human Computer Interaction (HCI)
  • Inclusive design/Accessibility
  • Educational Technology
  • Social aspects of computing
  • Technology-enhanced learning
  • Technology integration in K-20
  • Educational Robotics
  • Advanced Technologies for Learning
  • Computer Games and their social and pedagogical dimensions
  • Computer Mediated Communication (CMC)
  • Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL)
  • Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW)


The Research Hosting/Partner program is available to:

  • academics and researchers in the fields of HCI and Instructional Technology
  • practitioners in the fields of HCI and Instructional Technology
