Building International Cooperation for Trustworthy ICT: Security, Privacy and Trust in Global Networks & Services
Start date: Jan 1, 2011,
End date: Dec 31, 2013
The BIC project responds to FP7 Call 5 Objective ICT-2009.1.4 Trustworthy ICT, specifically d) Networking, Coordination and Support of networking, road-mapping, coordination and awareness raising of research and its results in trustworthy ICT with priority towards (vii) International co-operation in fields where global action will create added value.With this Coordination Action, successful models developed by the project partners will be used to engender co-operation of EU researchers and program management in Trustworthy ICT with their peers in countries who have already signed Science and Technology (ST) agreements, namely Brazil, India and South Africa. The project will facilitate (including funding for networking activities and workshops) a technical- and programme-level platform for engagement, collaboration and networking activities internationally in a step-wise systematic fashion. These new countries represent significant emergent world-impacting information economies through the scale and sophistication of their growing ICT sectors. In addition, the project will provide continuity and bring together a truly global collaboration with the participation of the already established connections from the INCO-TRUST project with the United States, Japan, Australia, South Korea and Canada. This will be accomplished with the establishment of an international Advisory Group (IAG) and an Annual Forum on Trustworthy ICT based in Europe. The IAG will provide a dedicated forum to address trust & security issues of global relevance. BIC will support the implementation of this forum.The objectives of the work performed by the proposed BIC project will be:Objective 1. Chart landscape and Initial EU alignment;Objective 2. Prioritisation of the EU influenced vision and research directions amongst the new countries (Brazil, India and South Africa), including alignment of work programmes;Objective 3.Global alignment, consensus and outreach of the visions and challenges of all countries;Objective 4. Definition of Tangible International Activities including success metrics and setting up global projects.
