Name of the Project: CONCORDIA – Cyber security cOmpeteNCe fOr Research anD InnovAtion
Programme: HORIZON 2020
Duration: 1. 1. 2019 – 31. 12. 2022
CONCORDIA Project is an H2020 EU funded Research and Innovation Action that positions the CONCORDIA ecosystem, a Cybersecurity Competence Network with leading research, technology, industrial and public competences to build the European Secure, Resilient and Trusted Ecosystem. It devises a cybersecurity roadmap to identify powerful research paradigms, to do hands-on experimental validation, prototype and solution development in an agile way to quickly identify successful but also unsuccessful potential product development. It develops next-generation cybersecurity solutions by taking a holistic end-to-end data-driven approach from data acquisition, data transport and data usage, and addressing device-centric, network-centric, software- and system-centric, data- and application-centric and user-centric security.
CONCORDIA identifies marketable solutions and grow pioneering techniques towards fully developing their transformative potential and develops sector-specific (vertical) and cross-sector (horizontal) industrial pilots with building incubators. Moreover, it launches Open Calls to allow entrepreneurs and individuals to stress their solutions with the development. Its Advisory Board is comprised by leaders of industry, standardization, policy and politics to give strategic advice and also to connect with possible clients and users of the developed solutions, other projects and research initiatives, as well as important standardization and certification institutions.
Thus, CONCORDIA mediates between multiple communities, as different communities have different priorities and perspectives. The ultimate goal is establishing an European Education Ecosystem for Cybersecurity. CONCORDIA, therefore, extends traditional training courses with new virtual courses (MOOCs and SPOCs) and a variety of outreach activities, including high-school curricula development, competitions, cyber ranges. Finally, it provides expertise to European policy makers and industry.
The CONCORDIA partners:
- Coordinator: RESEARCH INSTITUTE CODE, Germany
- 50+ other partners from all over Europe
