Home » News & Events » News » Upgrades to the Cyberwatching.eu Portal - Improved User Experience and a window on EU Cybersecurity & privacy

Business owners and researchers who depend on complete and up-to-date information about cybersecurity and privacy in Europe should head over to the newly improved Cyberwatching.eu website. The website provides a single gateway to the entire body of EU funded research in the sector. It also offers a comprehensive marketplace of cybersecurity & privacy-related information, products and services.

Gateway to EU-funded research

The Project Hub offers a unique entry point to information on 150 current and completed projects. The hub has been enhanced with significant new functionality and now offers cybersecurity researchers and solutions providers an improved user experience. It also allows site users to register a project and to interact with project partners. Within the Hub, each project is allocated a dedicated space and given editing rights so that reports, announcements, demos and contact details may be uploaded.

A search facility has also been added to the project catalogue so users can browse the projects by cybersecurity theme. In addition, users who register on the platform will receive regular information updates from projects within their pre-defined categories of major interest.

Project Radar

Another new feature of the Cyberwatching.eu portal is the Project Radar which uses visualisation software to map the complete landscape of funded cybersecurity projects organised by research theme and positioned in concentric rings to show their status. The research themes reflect the cybersecurity taxonomy which covers the full spectrum of cybersecurity and privacy research.  Users can select a thematic area to view a detailed breakdown of the relevant projects listed according to their position in the lifecycle.

Cybersecurity Marketplace

The Marketplace is a consolidated collection of outputs from completed, EU-funded research projects. It is also a shop window for innovative products and services offered by small and medium sized providers across Europe. As such, organisations may use the Marketplace as a platform to display the products which have been developed through internal research and innovation activities. At the same time it serves as a window to the solutions developed by other organisations and which could be integrated into future offerings.

New functionality within this area of the portal enables users to register a product or service online and search the marketplace by category. As with the Project Hub, registered users receive information updates about products and services, and also about workshops, webinars and other initiatives featured in the newly designed Events area of the portal. Registration to the marketplace is totally free, giving providers unparalled visibility and accessibility.

With the plethora of cybersecurity and privacy research and innovation actions ongoing across Europe, there is a strong need for coordination activities which both enhance synergies between projects and also help business owners identify and access those products and services which best serve their cybersecurity requirements. The ongoing upgrades to Cyberwatching.eu are intended to address these requirements with increasing effectiveness as the site develops.
