Cyberwatching.eu is the European observatory of research and innovation in the field of cybersecurity and privacy.
Funded under the European Commission's H2020 programme, this brand-new project will contribute to making the Digital Single Market a safer place by promoting the uptake and understanding of cutting-edge cybersecurity and privacy services which emerge from Research and Innovation initiatives across Europe.
