MEPs back cybersecurity research plan

The European Parliament’s research committee has lent its support to creating a cybersecurity research centre to utilise EU funding in this area and to help coordinate cybersecurity activities across Europe.

Under European Commission plans, which the committee broadly backed on 18 February, the centre would be the main implementing body for EU funding of cybersecurity research, including any allocated through the bloc’s 2021-27 R&D programme Horizon Europe.

The centre would also help to coordinate civilian and defence activities in cybersecurity across the EU, and oversee a network of national coordination centres. It would be set up as a European Partnership, meaning that it would be funded by the EU as a whole, individual member states and, potentially, by industry.
