What is the cyberwatching.eu Observatory?

Over the next 48 months, our Observatory will become THE European hub for Cybersecurity and Privacy. We'll monitor R&I initiatives throughout EU & Associated Countries while supporting European stakeholders in playing an active role in shaping the global cybersecurity & privacy landscape.
Through a combination of clustering activities and Technical and Market Readiness Level Workshops, we will monitor the whole lifecycle from research development and implementation, to validation and market uptake, making it possible for stakeholders to increase their knowledge, raise their awareness and find possible synergies between different initiatives.

Who benefits and how?

The cyberwatching.eu Observatory will be the natural ground  to identify initiatives encompassing security and privacy R&I with a high potential for cross-fertilization and synergy. SMEs, investors, R&I projects and policy makers can all beneift:

  • The Observatory will enable operators of essentials services and digital service providers to find and procure the best innovative solutions for risk management and incident reporting.
  • The Observatory will offer a fresh, new approach to R&I impact, guiding mainly technical experts within public and private organisations actions on CS&P with the staged integration of a marketplace and catalogue of services for commercialising results.
  • The Observatory will help policy makers and regulators to monitor impact of R&I actions for maximum RoI, shape future research directions for the DSM, provide timely roadmaps on CS&P, regulatory compliance and policy actions, as well as ICT standardisation.

Call for experts for a group on liability and new technologies

The European Commission has launched a call for experts for a group on liability and new technologies. The deadline for application is 30 April 2018.

New technologies such as artificial intelligence, advanced robotics and the Internet of Things bring enormous opportunities in various fields (transport, healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing). At the same time they could raise challenges related to liability, which is why the Commission wants to initiate a discussion on the way forward.

The main tasks of the Expert Group will be:
