CALL: DIGITAL SECURITY FOCUS AREA
Call identifier: H2020-DS-2016-2017 Publication date: 14 October 2015
Call summaryScene Setter:
ICT-driven transformations bring opportunities across many important sectors but also vulnerabilities to critical infrastructures and digital services, which can have significant consequences on the functioning of society, economic growth and the technological innovation potential of Europe. These challenges are being addressed through innovative approaches that cross the boundaries of individual H2020 pillars, calls and challenges. Therefore the main research & Innovation activities in Digital Security are grouped in a dedicated focus area cutting across LEIT–ICT and Societal Challenges parts of the work programme, including evidently the Societal Challenge 7 on "Secure Societies", but also the Societal Challenge 1 on "Health, demographic change and wellbeing".
In July 2016, the European Commission, in partnership with Industry, established the Cybersecurity contractual Public-Private Partnership (Cybersecurity PPP)[[https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/cybersecurity-industry]]. The Cybersecurity PPP gathers industrial and public resources to deliver innovation against a jointly-agreed roadmap for strategic research and innovation.
The Cybersecurity PPP will help to align the demand and supply sectors for cybersecurity products while also seeking synergies to develop common, sector-neutral technological building blocks with maximum replication potential e.g. encrypted storage and processing, secured communication, etc.
