Nicosia, Cyprus – 30th June 2012. Hyperion Systems Engineering Public Ltd., the leading independent solutions provider to the global process industry and the only company of its kind in Cyprus announced today that Dr. Symeon Kassianides, the company's founder and CEO has appreciatively accepted an invitation to join the Board of Trustees of The Cyprus Institute (CyI).

The Cyprus Institute is a non-profit research and post-graduate education institution with a strong scientific and technological orientation, created in 2005. It is an issue-orientated institution, emphasizing international collaborations and cross-disciplinary research and education.

The Institute operates under the aegis of the Cyprus Research and Educational Foundation (CREF), which is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprised of leading personalities of the international academic, political and business world; it is currently chaired by Professor Edouard Brézin, former president of the French Academy of Sciences and Professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. The principal objectives of CREF are the advancement of knowledge and its humane and benevolent application and the establishment of a new research and educational public-benefit organization which shall generally promote research and education in Cyprus and abroad and shall aim primarily at benefitting the public interest at large.

The CyI is being developed by establishing research centres which address challenging problems that are important at both the regional and international levels. Its research centres are developed in partnership with leading institutions in the respective thematic areas. The Energy, Environment and Water Research Center (EEWRC) is developed in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Science and Technology in Archaeology Research Center (STARC) in partnership with the Centre de recherche et de restauration des musées de France (C2RMF), headquartered in the Louvre and the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC) in partnership with the University of Illinois.

The invitation to join the CREF Board of Trustees was extended to Dr. Kassianides in June 2012 in a letter from the Board's Chairman Professor Edouard Brézin.
