Our Objectives

The Mediterranean Institute of Innovation, Communications and Technology (MIICT) is an independent, non-profit, research-oriented organisation.

Our main objectives are to:

  • Compete for and obtain funding for research for its members to the effect of promoting participation in learning and research programmes from the various EU funding programmes available.

  • Study how Innovation, Communications and Technology are impacting the daily lives of those who use them and undertake research as to how the benefits can be partaken of widely and the disadvantages mitigated and managed.

  • Raise public awareness about the socio-economic importance of innovation, information communications technologies and broader technological development and adoption.

  • Encourage the advancement of scientific knowledge through innovative cutting-edge processes, greater and more prolific use of ICTs and other enabling technologies.

  • Encourage the advancement of empirical application of innovation and scientific advancement with a view to ameliorating employee productivity, citizen quality of life and economic development.

  • Instigate the development of the Mediterranean region and its transformation into a global leader in ICT, innovation and welfare-augmenting technologies.

  • Promote the integration of technologies and cross-fertilisation of ideas.

  • Study how the Mediterranean region can retain the benefits of innovations that the region gives rise to and to fully capitalise on innovations made elsewhere.

MIICT aims to be an inclusive Institute. In this regard, we specifically want to ascertain that individuals with hearing, visual and mobility impairments are not excluded from the MIICT. Hearing loss, colour blindness, blindness or mobility debilities should not limit people from partaking in research and its fruits.

“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.”
