CALL: DIGITAL SECURITY
Call identifier: H2020-SU-DS-2018-2019-2020 Publication date: 27 October 2017
Call summary and aims
This Call deals with R&D and innovation towards enhancing digital security.
Proposals under this call should consider the relevant human factor and social aspects when developing innovative solutions. Where relevant, proposals should also describe how the gender dimension is taken into account in their content.
Whereas activities will have an exclusive focus on civil applications, coordination with the activities of the European Defence Agency (EDA) may be considered with possible synergies being established with projects funded by the EDA programmes[[http://eda.europa.eu/what-we-do/eda-priorities/research-technology]]. The complementarity of such synergies should be described comprehensively. On-going cooperation should be taken into account. Only an explicit and firm commitment from EDA-funded projects to contribute to a project may positively impact the evaluation of a proposal submitted under this work programme part.
In this Call, "standards" and "standardisation" are used in a broad sense, except where they are specifically referred to as "European standards" or "European standardisation".
For grants awarded under these topics for Innovation Action and/or Research and Innovation Action, the Commission or Agency may object to a transfer of ownership or the exclusive licensing of results to a third party established in a third country not associated to Horizon 2020. The respective option of Article 30.3 of the Model Grant Agreement will be applied.
All topics in this work programme part will be subject to security scrutiny.
It is expected that this call will continue in 2020.
Cybersecurity, Digital Privacy and data protection
