Study Groups with Industry are week-long intensive workshops that were initiated at the University of Oxford in 1968 in order to enable long-term collaborations of academia with industry, commerce and the society. Since then Study Groups have been successfully organized in 20 countries around the world leading to hundreds of fruitful collaborations. This is the 1st Study Group with Industry taking place in Cyprus and the aim is to establish it as an annual event.
