Cyberwatching.eu

Brief description

Cyberwatching.eu (“The European watch on cybersecurity & privacy”) acknowledges the need for a comprehensive and organic view of all of the Research & Innovation (R&I) activities carried out in the EU and Associated Countries outlined in the DS-05-2016 call text to face the growing cybersecurity & privacy challenges. Cyberwatching.eu shall deliver a watch which is needed to avoid dispersion of efforts and investments and realise synergies to further encourage excellence. The project will implement and maintain an EU Observatory to monitor R&I initiatives on cybersecurity and privacy for EU, National and Associated Countries projects. With a pragmatic approach, Cyberwatching.eu will be clustering cybersecurity projects and developing a catalogue of services around cybersecurity and privacy, with the inclusion of an "end-users' club" to ensure that the perspectives and interests of SMEs are properly taken account of. The project will also establish an EU-wide “Cybersecurity & Privacy Ecosystem” which includes a marketplace, to maximise thematic synergies between H2020, EU and national efforts in the area of cybersecurity R&I, stated within the objectives set by the DS-05 2016 call, directly impacting all relevant stakeholders which is aimed at streamlining otherwise independent efforts, thus exploiting and valuing the richness of different approaches.

Our role

Trust-IT is the coordinator of Cyberwatching.eu, also leading communication and outreach activities. As coordinator of the project and member of the European Cyber Security Organisation, Trust-IT will play an important role in ensuring that both initiatives are aligned and collaboration is successful.
