As part of its mission to share information on European cybersecurity calls, provide financing opportunities, and encourage networking and the formation of consortia among the European cybersecurity community, the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre’s (ECCC) ”Info Days” series begins with a webinar on 1 June 2023 from 14:00 to 17:00 CET. The webinar will cover three of the most important open cybersecurity calls of the Digital Europe Programme (DEP), including pitches on potential solutions from the audience.
The ECCC will kick off its series of events known as ”Info Days” with a webinar on 1 June. Powered by the European Cybersecurity Community (ECCO) project, the ”Info Days” events will be organised to promote the creation of European partnerships and therefore ensure that calls made by EU bodies calls may be answered both effectively and successfully.
Are you interested to learn more about European funding opportunities? We'd like to invite you to register as an attendee to the webinar HERE.
The goal of the Info Days series is to disseminate information on important European calls and financing opportunities from Horizon Europe and the Digital Europe Programme (DEP). This event will enhance networking in the European cybersecurity sector and the formation of consortia to answer EU calls successfully by providing a setting in which interested parties can come together to discuss the three main calls of the Digital Europe Programme that will be opened on 25 May and closed on 6 July 2023:
- EU Cybersecurity Resilience, Coordination and Cybersecurity Ranges
- Capacity Building of Security Operation Centres
- Uptake of Innovative Cybersecurity Solutions
In addition to providing information on these calls, European cybersecurity companies that have developed new products or solutions will be offered the opportunity to pitch their ideas to high-level representatives from the official European funding bodies. Interested parties are invited to submit their pitches to infodayslist [dot] cyber-ecco [dot] eu (infodays[at]list[dot]cyber-ecco[dot]eu).
