With cybersecurity a key pillar of the EC’s digital strategy cyberwatching.eu has delivered a number of reports on the EU R&I landscape and the development of the EU Project Radar. The radar provides an interactive “birds-eye” view of the complete collection of EU funded projects in the cybersecurity space. Over 260 projects are organized by high-level categories, their lifecycle stage and relative market and technology maturity.
“The radar and the related reports offer a unique vision an ever-evolving landscape. The radar processes and analyses detailed landscape data for users such as policy makers, researchers and companies make swift yet statistically sound statements on the state of the art of the European cybersecurity and privacy research landscape”. David Wallom, Associate Professor at the Oxford University eResearch centre & cyberwatching.eu partner.
Managed directly by the projects it maps, researchers and innovators working in the EC R&I space can actually update their data in real-time and at the same time actually carry out a self-assessment on their market and technology readiness levels (MTRL) at the same time. This MTRL analysis of the status of projects provides a unique view of the landscape and has sparked project-to-project collaboration to address technology and sector specific challenges, as well as joint dissemination actions involving over 25 projects.
"Thanks to our understanding of the market and technology readiness of projects, we’ve been able to cluster them into meaningful clusters. Our reports show the value of project clustering to align on joint recommendations and showcasing results together through joint events and webinars”. Marina Ramírez Jiménez, project manager at AEI Ciberseguridad & cyberwatching.eu partner.
