CUBIT joins ECSO and starts working on EU priorities in cybersecurity
Cubit has recently joined ECSO (European Cyber Security Organisation), the European Commission’s partner in implementing the contractual Public-Private Partnership (cPPP) on cyber security, established in 2016.
cPPP aim at fostering cooperation between public and private actors at early stages of the research
and innovation process and to stimulate cybersecurity industry by helping align the demand and supply sectors to allow industry to elicit future requirements from end users, as well as sectors that are important customers of cybersecurity solutions.
ECSO gathers over 260 members, ranging from European cybersecurity industry players, as well as national public administrations, research centres, SME’s, regions and academia. ECSO is not a lobbying body but an independent advisor to EU Institutions.
There are 6 working groups, that deal with the different aspects of cyber security industrial policy to support EU cyber ecosystem, EU Community and EU competitiveness growth. CUBIT is part of Working Group 6, aimed at:
- supporting cPPP implementation,
- coordinating cybersecurity activities across cPPPs, CCN Pilots and other EU Initiatives
- suggesting the H2020 Work Programme and the future Horizon Europe and Digital Europe Programme.
