The Community Service Award of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING) was given to Petrolina and its subsidiary PPT Aviation Services. The aim of the award, which was presented as part of the Institute’s recent graduation ceremony for postgraduate and doctoral students, is to recognise companies that actively support the Institute.
Petrolina and PPT Aviation Services are long-term supporters of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics, contributing to both its operations, as well as supporting it financially. Since 2018, they have been offering scholarships for postgraduate students at CING, giving the opportunitiy to a new generation of scientists and supporting their research in the fields of Neuroscience, Molecular Medicine, and Biomedicine. At the same time, they have been giving fuel coupons to the students of the Institute.
From 2011, Petrolina and its subsidiary PPT Aviation Services have been sponsoring the fuel for the annual “Wings of Hope Trip” organised by TELETHON and the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Cyprus (MDA), which supports the work of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics. This specific event is one Telethon’s most successful activities.
The Executive Director of Petrolina, Ms. Georgia Lefkariti, and the General Manager of PPT Aviation Services Ltd, Mr. Demetris Mavromichalos, thanked the CING for this award, stressing that the support of the Institute and its students represents the encouragement of this community, as well as the effort to boost the high level of research produced by the Institute.
