European Funding Programs

1. European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

Project description: Georgios Afxentiou Research Laboratory Ltd and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development have an agreement in providing management consulting services to SMEs in Cyprus.

October 2015 – Present


The EBRD Small Business Support (SBS) program provides business advice to help small and medium-sized businesses grow, succeed, then grow again, becoming genuine catalysts for their local economies and region.  A vibrant small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector is a vital ingredient for a healthy market economy.  However, finance alone often cannot meet the challenges facing small and medium-sized businesses.  They also need access to know-how to improve their performance and grow.


2. European Network for Research Evaluation in the Social Sciences and the Humanities (ENRESSH)

Project description: COST PROGRAM - COST Action CA15137

April 2016 – Present


The challenge of the Action is to enable the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to better demonstrate their true place in academia and society.  At the origin of European universities, they continue to attract large numbers of students, produce world class research and contribute significantly to the financial viability of the European university system.  Nevertheless, they struggle to adapt to evaluation systems that do not fully reflect the aspirations and research patterns of SSH disciplines and that tend to emphasize impact in terms of immediate economic returns.


3. Eurostars - EUREKA

Project description: Eurostars Expert

March 2013 – Present


The Eurostars Programme is managed by EUREKA and it is the first European funding and support programme to be specifically dedicated to research-performing SMEs.  Eurostars stimulates them to lead international collaborative research and innovation projects.  The Eurostars mission is to support R&D performing entrepreneurs, by funding their research activities, enabling them to compete internationally and become leaders in their sector.
