European workforce of tomorrow: cyber ranges in practice

Three cybersecurity projects working on cyber ranges have recently joined forces to contribute to fill the gap in skilled cyber personnel and cope with the ever-evolving threat landscape

CONCORDIA is a cluster of three EU H2020 research projects, CONCORDIA, SPIDER and FORESIGHT organised under the umbrella of the European Commission’s Horizon Results Booster programme (HRB).  The projects address complementary areas of the cyber security training sector with a specific focus on cyber ranges.

Collectively, the projects aim to interconnect Europe’s cybersecurity capabilities into a network of expertise to help build a secure, trusted, resilient and competitive ecosystem, thanks to set of dedicated cyber ranges to train cybersecurity professionals at various levels under realistic conditions, enhancing their readiness to prevent, detect, react and mitigate sophisticated cyber-attacks.

The CONCORDIA cluster has been highly supported by Cyberwatching.eu who contributed to carry out a series of joint dissemination activities and in particular the  organisation of a joint webinar “Training the EU workforce of tomorrow: Cyber ranges in practice” on the 17th of May 2022.

The webinar was focussed on the key-outputs of the projects, with a very high level of interest from the public demonstrating the èpotential impact of cyber ranges and their relevance in building resilience against a growing landscape of threats.

Support for the workshop was provided through the following actions:

  • Conceptualisation of the overall event idea.
  • Definition of the event format.
  • Extensive Stakeholders Campaign.
  • Elaboration of Graphic elements for the web channels.
  • Practical management of the event.

Here are some examples of their joint communications collatrerials.

Future Events

In context of the annual Internet Festival in Pisa, the CNR Institute of Informatics and Telematics and Registro.it are organising the workshop Cybersecurity Day 2022.

The event will take place on 7 October 2022 at the Auditorium Giuseppe Moruzzi 1 in Pisa and will be attended by industry experts, researchers, representatives of the business world.


SOCCRATES provides a deep dive session on the SOCCRATES platform at the ONE Conference 2022. 

Within the H2020 EU project SOCCRATES a security decision support platform has been developed for Security Operation Centres (SOCs) and Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs). This, so called ‘SOCCRATES Platform’ is targeted at organisation’s inhouse SOC and at Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) that provide SOC services.
