29 research initiatives were submitted within the NWO call ‘Cybersecurity for Digital Resilience' (KIC). Initiators are looking for new consortium partners, both academic and industrial for these innovative research proposals. To accommodate this, dcypher will organise an online meeting on 25 January for potential consortium partners to meet.


The aim of this ‘Cybersecurity for Digital Resilience’ initiative is to address crucial cybersecurity challenges that need to be solved in order to ensure the safety of several societal digital transitions. NWO is funding this PPP research initiative with 15 million euros, creating opportunities for interested parties to collaborate with the initiators of research proposals. You can view the initiatives on NWO’s website.
