A visual guide to the EU Cybersecurity project landscape


Purpose and Scope:

The Cyberwatching project supports EU funded cybersecurity projects to connect, share, and synergise to maximise the impact of their research and innovations.

As part of this work, Cyberwatching is updating and creating a new version of its "Cybersecurity Project Radar" to visualise the state of play across the EU cybersecurity research landscape. This tool addresses key areas of interests for projects themselves, and for funding agencies:

  • What are the focus areas of research and innovation funding in the EU?

  • In a nutshell, what does the pipeline in research innovation look like?

  • When can we expect results that can be ingested by the target customer segments?

  • How well are the projects progressing through their workplan?

  • How well are we progressing compared to our competitors?

This webinar will introduce the Cyberwatching Project Radar, how it works, and how the gathered data is processed and visualised. A live demonstration will show how to use the radar, how to interpret the results, and where to find more information.

Who should attend:

The webinar is open to all research and innovation projects that want to improve their technological and marketing capabilities. Also, researchers, innovators, EC project officers and programme editors who can use it to observe the cybersecurity and privacy trends.

Registration: The webinar is free of charge.
