Abstract

With its aim to boost the effectiveness of the Security Union, the EU wishes to ensure that it retains and develops essential capacities to secure its digital economy, infrastructures, society and democracy. The EU has recognised that cybersecurity research, competences and investments are spread across Europe with too little alignment, and that there is an urgent need to step up investment in technological advancements that could make the Digital Single Market more cybersecure and overcome the fragmentation of EU research capacities. CyberSec4Europe will align and interconnect a vast pool of research excellence in existing centres and research facilities, bringing together cybersecurity expertise in an interdisciplinary manner while developing a governance model for the future European Cybersecurity Competence Network. The 43 consortium partners will consolidate and reinforce cooperation and synergies between the research and industrial communities, including SMEs. The 42-month project will strengthen the research and innovation competence and cybersecurity capacities of Member States to meet the increasing number of cybersecurity challenges in the future. The project has identified key demonstration cases in different industrial domains, including finance, healthcare, transportation and smart cities. These address prominent research areas in both the public and private sectors that correspond closely with real-world issues, cyber threats and security problems. Another important outcome will be the development of a cybersecurity skills framework model to be used as a reference by education providers, employers and citizens.
