Cyber security research Agenda for PrIvacy and Technology chALlenges
Start date: Oct 1, 2013,

Cyber security is a growing concern worldwide with cloud computing, smart grids, social networks, and Voice over IP telephony as key target domains. Europe's interests, sensitivities, and commitment to liberal values in Cyber security and privacy are not necessarily aligned to those of other leading world actors. Therefore, leaning back and expecting others to solve the problems is not likely to lead to optimal outcomes for Europe. However, for Europe to move to a pro-active role, it has to exercise its power potential by achieving a sufficient degree of coordination among Member States. In addition, Europe's ability to influence how Cyber security and privacy issues are handled is also key to the competitiveness of European industries in the field.CAPITAL has been built around two pillars: coordinate European R&D efforts in the cyber security domain and jointly address research and innovation within an Integrated Research & Innovation Agenda. The project will therefore cover two sub-bullets of the call objective.CAPITAL is proposed by a strong consortium gathering nine representatives from leading Industries and Research Organisations, well positioned -in terms of networking, expertise and market outreach - in the cyber security domain. CAPITAL complements the CYSPA project started on October 2012, also coordinated by EOS which aims at defining an overall strategy and creating a community of solution providers, Researchers and end-users to enhance the industrial community to protect itself from cyber-disruptions and support the European elaboration of regulations to enhance the overall protection level.
