SOTER is delighted to announce that we have started a collaboration with the H2020 StandICT.eu 2023 project, to boost open standardisation for Cybersecurity at a European scale.
“The major challenges in European Innovation Actions concern transforming sustainable and exploitable results in time, beyond the project duration. Therefore, aligning the technological achievement with the relevant standards, but also sharing recommendations for further standardisation with policymakers and other stakeholders is crucial. In consequence, it is great that SOTER joins the StandICT.eu 2023 community to valorise their outcomes, benefit from our Open Calls, and to connect with top-notch experts in Cybersecurity standardisation”, considers Mona Marill, project Manager at AUSTRALO Marketing Lab, a StandICT.eu 2023 partner.
StandICT.eu 2023 has two key objectives – firstly, it will fund 400+ European ICT standardisation experts in a series of 10 Open calls providing a total of 3M€ of funding. Secondly, it launches the European Observatory for ICT Standardisation (EUOS) that is an interactive online ecosystem including an up-to-date standards repository, as well as working groups sharing insights about ongoing standardisation efforts across different initiatives. StandICT.eu 2023 focuses on horizontal and vertical ICT fields as defined in the Rolling Plan for ICT Standardisation, and one of its focuses is Cybersecurity.
“The SOTER project aims at strengthening cybersecurity in digital financial services, focusing on the human aspects, as well as on privacy and data protection, as well as standardization which is a key aspect. We are excited about this cooperation with StandICT.eu, which will support and boost visibility for SOTER’s outreach activities around standardisation through their stakeholder network”, says Project Coordinator Ana Gonzalez Segura at everis.
One of StandICT.eu 2023’s critical efforts of the coming months is to effectively highlight the most pressing priorities in the field of Cybersecurity to be addressed to the European policymakers, the International Standardisation Organization [SDOs] and to National Standardisation Bodies [NSBs]. With this regard, the collaboration between the two projects will help consolidate even further these commitments on both sides.
StandICT.eu 2023 runs from the 1st of September 2020 for a period of 36 months. The Consortium of Partners includes Trust-IT SRL (Coordinator), Dublin City University and Australo Interinnov Marketing Lab SL.
The StandICT.eu 2023 project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 – Research and Innovation programme – under grant agreement no. 951972.
