Promised: Promoting Archaeological Science in the Eastern Mediterranean (video)

The Cyprus Institute in collaboration with KU Leuven in Belgium and the University of Cambridge launched the project Promised: Promoting Archaeological Science in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The three-year project will use training, research and dissemination actions to upgrade the scientific performance of the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Center (STARC) of The Cyprus Institute, with an emphasis on Archaeological Materials Science and Bioarchaeology.

The partnership will upgrade the scientific performance of the Cyprus Institute in Archaeological Sciences and to help develop its doctoral training programme.

According to the Institute, the programme aims to reverse the “brain drain from the region and developing an internationally recognized doctoral school in Cyprus.”

STARC will collaborate closely with national and regional authorities and research partners in bringing the region’s past to light.
