Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health in Association with Harvard School of Public Health, Cyprus University of Technology, Cyprus

The Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health (CII) is an international research, education and technology initiative for environmental and public health. It was established by the Government of Cyprus and Harvard University to address environmental and public health issues in Cyprus and throughout a broad region including the eastern Mediterranean, northern Africa and the Middle East.

The CII has positioned itself as a regional academic and research center of excellence in environmental and public health issues. Its mission is to provide world-class educational and research opportunities to students and scholars from the region, as well as to disseminate relevant information to the media and lay public through its outreach activities; furthermore, to investigate population risks associated with environmental exposures, to identify susceptible sub-populations and to provide scientific evidence for sound environmental health policies.

From 2004 to 2009 the CII operated as an independent Institute in Nicosia. In August of 2009 the Institute moved to Limassol, where it now operates as an element of the Cyprus University of Technology, under its School of Health Sciences, in association with the Harvard School of Public Health.
