period 2003 - 2005. The main objective of FP 2003-2005 is to achieve RPF’s targets for this time period, as these have been set by the Foundation’s
Board of Directors. More specifically, these targets are: The improvement of the population’s quality of life The enhancement of the competitiveness of the Cyprus economy The increase of the potential for conducting high level research The promotion of Cypriot participation in international research. RPF's FP 2003-2005 consists of three (3) 'Activity Areas'. Each 'Area' represents the materialization mechanism of one of RPF’s strategic objectives,
as this is recorded in the Foundation’s Constitution. The three Activity Areas are: A: 'Multi-thematic Research Development', which aims at the implementation of multi-thematic research projects. B: 'Applied Research Development', which aims at the development of new products and services for the benefit Cypriot enterprises in all economic sectors.
C: 'Infrastructure Development and Research Support', which aims at helping the upgrading of the research infrastructure, the promotion of research collaborations
and the exploitation of human research potential of Cyprus. Each Activity Area consists of a number of 'Research Programmes'. In total, RPF's FP 2003-2005 includes eleven (11) Research Programmes. Each Programme
has specialised objectives that are achieved through Specific Actions. There is a total of thirty-four (34) specific Actions in RPF's FP 2003-2005. The terms
'Activity Area', 'Research Programme' and 'Specific Action' will be referred to as 'Area', 'Programme' and 'Action', respectively. More details see under http://www.research.org.cy/index.php?s=7 ...
