  • [01] Cyprus University psychology project wins international prize

    The University of Cyprus Department of Psychology won prize money at the 11th International Conference of the Association for Contextual and Behavioral Science (ACBS), for its "Algia" project. The conference was held in Sydney, Australia.

    According to a University announcement, the project, named after the ancient Greek goddess of pain, is an innovative intervention program for dealing with chronic pain. It employs an interdisciplinary approach, combining psychological interventions and medical therapy as the treatment of choice for chronic pain.

    The program is financed through the European Territorial Cooperation Programme between Greece and Cyprus, and national sources.

    [02] Difference of 774% in phone call prices across the EU

    Mobile users across the European Union face huge price differences for the same services, with the biggest price difference being in domestic mobile calls, a 774% difference between Lithuania, the cheapest country, and Netherlands, the most expensive.

    According to a European Commission press release, these price differences cannot be explained by differences in quality, differences in the cost to provide the service, or by differences between countries in consumer purchasing power.

    European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes said that, "as these numbers clearly show, the 28 national telecoms markets in Europe today are not benefitting consumers like a single market would," adding that "it is critical for the whole EU to move quickly to build a real single market to achieve a truly connected continent."
