The University of Namur involved in a novel network for cybersecurity in the EU

In an increasingly digital world, cyberspace goes beyond boundaries.  The former views about territoriality and sovereignty are swept away by new worldwide geopolitical and geostrategic concepts. Therefore, it is essential to strengthen cybersecurity in the EU to guarantee digital security and strategic autonomy. 

The SPARTA project (Special Projects for Advanced Research and Technology in Europe) is a novel Cybersecurity Competence Network, supported by the EU’s H2020 program, with the objective to develop and implement top-tier research and innovation collaborative actions.

 

Re- imagining the way cybersecurity research, innovation, and training are performed in the European Union

From basic human needs (health) to economic activities (energy, finance, and transport) to technologies (ICT and industry) to sovereignty (e-Government, public administration), four research and innovation programs will push the boundaries to deliver advanced solutions to cover emerging challenges.

The SPARTA consortium, led by CEA, assembles a balanced set of 44 actors from 14 EU Member States at the intersection of scientific excellence, technological innovation, and societal sciences in cybersecurity. Together, along with SPARTA Associates, they aim at re- imagining the way cybersecurity research, innovation, and training are performed in Europe across domains and expertise, from foundations to applications, in academia and industry. In sharing experiences and excellence, challenges and capabilities, SPARTA makes decisive contributions to European strategic autonomy.
