Simulation and Data Science Center of Excellence (SIMDAS) is a project, that if successful, will upgrade the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center of The Cyprus Institute into a Center of Excellence in Simulation and Data Science in Cyprus by teaming it with the Forschungszentrum Jülich. Local partners are three public institutions as holders and providers of key data, the Departments of Antiquities, and Meteorology, and the Nicosia General Hospital, and two SMEs, Hyperion Systems Engineering, and SignalGeneriX connecting the center directly to commercial applications.

This event marks the beginning of a year-long effort aiming to engage the research communities, governmental institutions and industry to prepare a roadmap outlining the steps to be taken towards establishing a Center of Excellence in Simulation and Data Science that provides access to computing infrastructure, training, dedicated support and services to Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region.
