Founded by the University of Leuven, supported by European Commission FP7 and leading a PAN European Private partnership that interacts with Public Institutions, LSEC connects security experts, research institutes and universities, government agencies, end users, funding bodies and technical experts who are driving European research agendas. LSEC activities aim to raise cyber security awareness, support innovation and improve the competitiveness of the IT- Security market.
LSEC and HSD are partners within the Global Ecosystem of Ecosystems Partnership in Innovation and Cybersecurity (Global EPIC). This initiative has been founded to enable the future securely through the development and sharing of new knowledge in the field of cyber security – leading to societal, economic and technological impact in a timely fashion. It will do this by building a global community of innovation ecosystems who will collaborate on projects and share expertise through an expanding network of diverse organizations. This initiative will see 14 global ecosystems co-creating and adopting world-changing solutions to high-impact cybersecurity challenges, both current and emergent. The ecosystems involved come from over 10 different countries spanning three continents, reflecting the truly global nature of the partnership.
