A Cybersecurity Competence Network with leading research, technology, industrial and public competences. CONCORDIA provides excellence and leadership in technology, processes and services to establish an user-centric EU-integrated cyber security ecosystem for digital sovereignty in Europe.

The main objective of ECHO is to strengthen the proactive cyber defence of the European Union, enhancing Europe’s technological sovereignty through effective and efficient multi-sector and multi-domain collaboration. The project will develop a European Cybersecurity ecosystem, to support secure cooperation and development of the European market, as well as to protect the citizens of the European Union against cyber threats and incidents.

CyberSec4Europe is designing, testing and demonstrating potential governance structures for a future European Cybersecurity Competence Network using best practice examples derived from concepts like CERN as well the expertise and experience of partners.

GEIGER is an innovation project that aims to develop a solution that allows small businesses and entrepreneurs to become aware of their risks related to data protection, privacy, and cybersecurity, and get help in reducing these risks.

The TRAPEZE project will lead the way in putting cutting-edge technologies to practical use and become a lighthouse for European and global initiatives aiming to deliver citizen-first, cyber-resilient, innovation.

The CyberKit4SME project will develop tools to enable small businesses to become more aware of the risks so as to monitor, forecast and manage them. Specifically, it will design affordable and easy-to-use encryption and isolation tools to protect data. Blockchain tools will also be advanced to enable SMEs to share intelligence and incident reports with computer emergency response teams.

The PUZZLE project is developing cybersecurity tools to enable even the smallest enterprises to monitor, forecast, assess and manage their cyber risks. Specifically, the project will track the relationships amongst the cyber assets of each small and microenterprise. It will also consider the available network and compute and storage infrastructures and use them to efficiently calculate individual, cumulative and propagated risks, as well as recommend and apply mitigation actions.

FORTIKA aims to (1) minimise the exposure of small and medium sized businesses to cyber security risks and threats, and (2) help them successfully respond to cyber security incidents, while relieving them from all unnecessary and costly efforts of identifying, acquiring and using the appropriate cyber security solutions.

The SMESEC consortium is proposing to develop a cost-effective suite of cyber-security tools. The suite supports SMEs in managing network information security risks and threats and identifying opportunities for implementing secure, innovative technologies for the digital market. As a benefit, the framework shall allow SMEs not only look at cyber-security as an obstacle but also as an opportunity for business.
