Sapienza announces cybersecurity centre

Sapienza Università di Roma is to launch a “competence centre”, a public-private hub for technology transfer, focused on cybersecurity, Research Professional has learned.

The hub will be funded with an initial €7 million from Italy’s ministry for economic development, MISE, according to Teodoro Valente, prorector for research, innovation and technology transfer at Sapienza. This funding is expected to be matched with investment from 37 companies, including advanced engineering firm Leonardo, postal service Poste Italiane, train operator Thales and ICT company Sogei. 

The centre will work closely with a group of higher education institutions around Latinum, the region surrounding Italy’s capital. This includes Università di Roma Tor Vergata, Università Roma Tre, Luiss Guido Carli, Università della Tuscia and Università di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, as well as the Università dell’Aquila.
