About AEGIS

AEGIS is a Horizon 2020 project focusing on EU-US cybersecurity and privacy dialogue.

AEGIS provides support to EU-US ongoing dialogues and discussions related to cybersecurity and privacy, by providing a practical and effective international collaboration platform engaged in:

  • discussing progress and priorities;
  • setting the cybersecurity and privacy research agendas to be pursued at an international scale;
  • coordinating the sharing of policies and best practices, standards, test facilities, knowledge and experience in an effort to stimulate cooperation around cybersecurity and privacy research and innovation approaches and thus contribute in shaping the future global cybersecurity landscape.

Mission & Objectives

AEGIS project addresses one of the critical challenges of our era, which is cybersecurity and privacy. Over the next 2 years the project will implement an interactive work plan to strengthen dialogues between Europe and the US, in order to facilitate exchange of views, policies and best practices to stimulate cooperation around cybersecurity and privacy R&I, and contribute in shaping the future global cybersecurity and privacy landscape.

AEGIS proposes a multi-stakeholder approach to engage relevant communities more actively and strategically in supporting dialogues and creating a common and orchestrated vision and strategy to accelerate EU-US cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy R&I. At the core of the AEGIS strategy is the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US that will be established as a multi-stakeholder collaboration platform. The Cyber-RG EU-US, through its Working Groups, will address specific issues on international cooperation, technical trends, policy and legislation challenges in cybersecurity and privacy, and will facilitate the effective collaboration of a wide range of interested parties from both sides of the Atlantic, including policy makers, researchers, technology experts, business leaders, cyber policies experts and influencers and civil society.

Under the leadership of the AEGIS consortium, these key groups will come together to decisively tackle cybersecurity and privacy related problems and to provide opinions and recommendations to policy dialogue. AEGIS will also provide a mapping of the cybersecurity and privacy landscapes in EU and US, benchmark relevant legislation and policies and promote innovation partnerships and opportunities for future EU-US cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy areas of mutual strategic interest.
