During the Last 5 Years:

what do we expect from co living
What do we expect from Co-Living?
  • UCY as an academic and research institution, is interested firstly in enabling both the staff and the students involved in the project to improve their knowledge on the specific issues studied in this project and continue the specific research even after the project ends.
    • New research directions
    • Enhance courses
  • UCY having a long term expertise in carrying out research and development in the area of collaborative environments in the eHealth and the eInclusion sectors is seen Co-LIVING as an excellent opportunity which will lead to new research directions especially through the development of socialization services and models.
  • Such services fit well and will be integrated with other related research outcome the UCY has already managed to bring in the market, like the DITIS (Virtual Collaborative Working Environment), through the creation of a spinoff company in 2005.
  • Co-LIVING will also help UCY to consolidate and extend its links with industry giving opportunities for further valorisation of results.
