24 September - 24 September 2021

The Foundation keeps five Cyprological collections: Coins-Maps-Rare Books & Manuscripts, Engravings, Old Photographs & Watercolours – Contemporary Cypriot Art, and the Archaeological Collection.


It also curates two museums, the Museum of the History of Cypriot Coinage and the Archaeological Museum of George and Nefeli Giabra Pierides (donated by Clio and Solon Triantafyllides).


Children and adolescents will learn about the history of entrepreneurship in Cyprus, see the island through the eyes of 18th c. travelers and be introduced to Christian groups of early modern Cyprus through three research programmes that are co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Structural Funds in Cyprus, through the Research and Innovation Foundation, and hosted by the Cultural Foundation. ReInHerit research programme, coordinated by the Cultural Foundation and funded by Horizon 2020 framework programme – the biggest EU programme for research and innovation – will invite us to “re-inherit” our culture in different ways that stand out as viable, sustainable, productive and participatory.


The educational programmes of the Cultural Foundation, addressed to children and adolescents aged from 4 to 18, are approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports. The Foundation’s aim is to offer students the opportunity to enrich their knowledge of the history and culture of Cyprus or other countries, but also to gain unprecedented sensory experiences, travel to the past or imagine the future.




The “Researcher’s Night”, an initiative of the European Commission, is organized in the EU countries in order to bring out the importance of the role of researchers in society. The aim of the Foundation, as a host of research excellence, is to provide a link between its museums and collections and the future of present-day society by promoting the development of critical and innovative thinking through experiential learning.


The event is taking place for the second consecutive year online, on the 24 September 2021, and will run until midnight. The Research and Innovation Foundation coordinates the event in collaboration with academic and research institutes and other agencies in Cyprus.
