Famelab Cyprus

The Bank of Cyprus supports innovative efforts

Congratulations to winner Myrtani Pieri

The Bank of Cyprus, known for its support of innovative ideas and the efforts of young people, has sponsored the Famelab Competition, organised for the first time in Cyprus by the European Office of Cyprus and the British Council.

The aim of Famelab Cyprus (based on the successful model of Famelab UK) is to encourage scientists to inspire and excite public imagination with a vision of science in the 21st century. Entrants have three minutes to develop their ideas and presentation skills in front of a TV specialist and non-specialist audience, making science fun.

Myrtani Pieri, a Cypriot researcher at the Department of Biological Sciences of the University of Cyprus, winner of Famelab Cyprus, came first at the international Famelab competition held in Cheltehnham, England. The topic of her presentation was the role of the mother’s immune system during pregnancy.

The Bank of Cyprus wishes to congratulate Ms Myrtani Pieri, with the promise that it will continue to offer its support to young people and their efforts.
