Work Package 4

Research and Development Roadmap (WP4)

Responsibility for the definition of a common Research and Innovation Roadmap includes research, development and innovation activities that will enable an innovative and multidisciplinary research into cybersecurity with the aim of reducing fragmentation of cybersecurity research in Europe.

Over the past few years we have witnessed that Europe’s capacities in the area of cybersecurity are widely fragmented among Member States. To reduce this fragmentation and capitalise on the collective expertise that exists among the individual Competence Centres in Member States, this work group aims to create a common roadmap that will represent the join investment of the community – the joint commitment to their research – the joint commitment to their future.

From 25-26 February 2020, Evangelos Markatos, FORTH, describes the role of the roadmapping activities as the bridge between the project’s research and development and the seven industrial demonstrators.
