The collaborative event between the European project HERMES and the Cyprus Defence Ecosystem took place on June 18th at the Hilton Hotel in Nicosia. 

The HERMES project is funded under the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP). It is coordinated by the Cypriot company eBOS Technologies Ltd, a pioneer in research and a leader in participation in European Programs. Notably, this is the first time a Cypriot company is coordinating a European defence project with support from the Ministry of Defence of Cyprus. 

The goal of organising the event was to present the project and the broader Cyprus Defence Ecosystem in the field of research and innovation.

The event, skilfully moderated by the project Coordinator and Deputy Head of R&D Projects at eBOS Technologies, Mr Christos Skoufis, showcased the HERMES project’s cutting-edge innovations and significant achievements. The consortium companies, ITTI from Poland, Invisible Things Lab from Germany, and TALGEN Cybersecurity from Estonia, each brought their unique and indispensable expertise, a critical factor in the project’s success.

Additionally, the event presented other defence-related projects funded under the EDIDP and the European Defence Fund (EDF) programs. The participation of Cypriot companies (SignalGeneriX, CyRIC, Sidroco, Additess, Ianus Technologies, Ecliptic, Encorp, and S.Houtris) in these projects and defence-related activities was highlighted, providing a comprehensive view of the robust and diverse Cypriot Defence Ecosystem in the fields of research and innovation, ensuring the audience is well-informed about the local capabilities.
