The Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), as a member of the European University of Technology (EUt+), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the PwC Foundation, in the context of strengthening its cooperation with local business organisations.

The Memorandum establishes a framework for cooperation aimed at developing joint actions in areas of common interest, with particular emphasis on the area of “Innovation and Entrepreneurship” which is one of the main themes of the EUt+ Alliance, coordinated by the CUT.
