Home » News & Events » Events » CyberSec4Europe Launch Event

As EU institutions discuss the EC proposal for a regulation establishing the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre and the Network of National Coordination Centres, four pilot projects are starting to experiment on some core building blocks.

These include cybersecurity governance in Europe, the application of cybersecurity research to critical industry sectors, the availability, evaluation and usage of open tools for cybersecurity, and the creation of a cybersecurity research roadmap.

CyberSec4Europe is one of those pilots and is delighted to invite you to an evening celebrating the start of the project, featuring posters on vertical application area tasks (WP 5) and open security (WP 7).

The CyberSec4Europe Launch Event will be held on 26/02/2019 at Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU, Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels.
