Project Overview

 

CONCORDIA will establish a pilot for a Cybersecurity Competence Network to provide technological, societal and policy leadership for Europe and will lead the development of a common Cybersecurity Research & Innovation Roadmap for Europe. The EU-wide consortium involves prominent industry, academia, SMEs and especially national cyber security centers.

The project will be a fundamental instrument for promoting excellent research, market innovation, skill building, and a research roadmap for cybersecurity in Europe. In this context, the vision of CONCORDIA is to create a community, building bridges, and setting the foundations for strong cooperation between all stakeholders.

The Communication Systems Group CSG of the Department of Informatics IfI at the University of Zurich UZH leads within Work Package WP4 the Task 4.3 on "Economic Perspectives". Additionally, the CSG's expertise in Blockchains will be embedded to study and support DDoS mitigation mechanisms, cryptographic solutions on IoT devices, application-data security visualizations to identify and compare incidents (Forensic Visualizations), and operate a blockchain usage for CONCORDIA certificates.
