EC funded project


AEGIS aims to strengthen dialogues between Europe and the United States, in order to facilitate exchange of views, policies and best practices to stimulate cooperation around cybersecurity and privacy R&I and contribute in shaping the future global cybersecurity and privacy landscape. AEGIS proposes a multi-stakeholder approach to engage relevant communities from both sides of the Atlantic to accelerate EU-US cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy research and innovation.

The AEGIS project has created a Cybersecurity Reflection Group, a multi-stakeholder collaboration platform that brings together high level experts from Europe and US to address challenges in cybersecurity and privacy R&I through regular meetings and events

Who is the project designed for?

AEGIS has been designed to support EU-US ongoing dialogues and discussions related to cybersecurity and privacy, by providing a practical and effective international collaboration platform engaged in:

  • discussing progress and priorities;
  • setting the cybersecurity and privacy research agendas to be pursued at an international scale; and
  • coordinating the sharing of policies and best practices, standards, knowledge and experience in an effort to stimulate cooperation around cybersecurity and privacy research and innovation approaches and thus contribute in shaping the future global cybersecurity landscape.

Through the Cybersecurity Reflection Group and its Working Groups on Cybersecurity and Privacy R&I and Policies, AEGIS addresses critical issues for international cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy, including technical trends, policy and legislation challenges, and facilitates the effective collaboration of a wide range of interested parties from both sides of the Atlantic, including policy makers, researchers, technology experts, business leaders, cyber policies experts and influencers and civil society.

How is your project benefitting the end-user?

AEGIS promotes EU-US cooperation in Cybersecurity and Privacy R&I, provides guidance and stimulates innovation partnerships for transatlantic collaboration, engaging the industry, researchers, innovators and stakeholders from Europe and the US.
Main benefit from AEGIS:

  • AEGIS identifies R&I priorities for EU-US cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy, though consultation and validation with key stakeholders in Europe and the US and Working Groups under the umbrella of the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US.
  • AEGIS organizes Open Cyber Camps and Round Tables to facilitate the creation of ideas for effective development of security solutions, creating synergies and stakeholders’ engagement from EU and US.
  • AEGIS promotes policy debate and empower stakeholders throughout Europe and the US to work together to effectively address cybersecurity challenges, adopting common approaches and bridging fragmentation between multiple communities of researchers, innovators, technologists, policy makers and influential government stakeholders.
  • AEGIS provides Guidelines for innovation partnership in cybersecurity and privacy EU-US collaboration.
  • AEGIS provides recommendations to the political dialogue on cybersecurity, addressing international, technical and socio-political challenges in cybersecurity and privacy R&I.

Please briefly describe the results your project achieved so far

AEGIS has established the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US, a multi-stakeholder collaboration platform with two Working Groups: the Cybersecurity and Privacy R&I WG and the Cybersecurity and Privacy Policies WG.

The Working Groups bring together high-level experts from both sides of the Atlantic to address specific issues on cybersecurity and privacy, including the identification of common approaches in addressing cybersecurity and privacy challenges from an R&I as well as a governance and institutional perspective. 

With input from the Cybersecurity Reflection Group, AEGIS has developed a series of high-impact publications that analyze the EU and US cybersecurity landscapes and provide recommendations to increase transatlantic cooperation. 

What are the next steps for your project?

Although the AEGIS project has finished, the consortium will continue to raise awareness on EU-US issues in cybersecurity and privacy. In addition, the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US will continue to be active and exchange opinions on transatlantic developments in cybersecurity.

AEGIS Project of the Week 4-8 March 2019.
