The European Commission launched on 5 July 2016 a new partnership on cybersecurity which is expected to trigger 1.8 billion EUR of investment by 2020. New initiatives emerge to better equip Europe against cyber-attacks and to strengthen the competitiveness of its cybersecurity sector.
As part of its Digital Single Market strategy the Commission wants to reinforce cooperation across borders between all actors and sectors active in cybersecurity, and to help develop innovative and secure technologies, products and services throughout the EU. Under its research and innovation programme Horizon 2020, this public private partnership will include members from the European Cyber Security Organisation (ESCO), national, regional and local public administrations, research centres and academia. The aim of the partnership is to foster cooperation at research and innovation process and to build cybersecurity solutions for sectors, such as energy, health, transport and finance.
