The European Commission has issued a public invitation to experts and organisations in the field of cybersecurity to register themselves in the European Cybersecurity Atlas.
The Atlas is a knowledge management platform that maps, categorises, visualises, and analyses information on cybersecurity expertise in Europe. Its goal is to foster the collaboration between European cybersecurity experts in support of the EU Digital Strategy.
The goals of the European Cybersecurity Atlas are to:
facilitate the establishment of a community of practice
help identify with whom to collaborate on future projects
map the competencies of Europe in various cybersecurity domains
act as a knowledge management tool for the future European Cybersecurity Competence Centre
raise the visibility of participants within the cybersecurity community and beyond
better coordinate European R&D efforts in cybersecurity
contribute to shaping the strategic orientations of EU programmes funding cybersecurity research, technology and capabilities
provide relevant input to cybersecurity policymaking in Europe
provide awareness of the cybersecurity community
support the European Commission on managing work programmes and allocation of funds.
Key stakeholders include:
Cybersecurity Competence Community: this community consists of cybersecurity stakeholders, such as research institutions, companies and actors from the public sector. Members of the Community will share information with the Competence Centre, which will become a focal point of their activities.
Network of National Coordination Centres: Each Member State will nominate one National Coordination Centre, which will serve as a contact point between the members of the Community and the Competence Centre. The National Coordination Centres will also facilitate participation in cross-border projects, and create synergies with activities at national and regional level.
The European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre: this centre will coordinate the Network and support the Community by providing common access to cybersecurity expertise. Governed by representatives from Member States and the European Commission, it will play a key role in executing the Digital Europe and Horizon Europe programmes.
