IPACSO to open application procedure for first Cyber Security and Privacy awards
IPACSO, the European project that aims at speeding up the tracing, development and commercialization of cyber security and privacy opportunities, now invites applicants to submit their case for the first European Cyber Security & Privacy Innovation Awards that will be granted in October.
Privacy and Cyber Security are sometimes eclipsed by fear, uncertainty, doubt and regulatory impact. “Comprehensive research, innovation and incubation help us to be one step ahead of online fraudsters. Every project deserves our attention, and with these innovation awards we wish to give even more publicity, policy support and increase market potential”, says Ulrich Seldeslachts, CEO of LSEC one of the IPACSO partners.
The registration process will end 30 June 2014. Upon their registration, applicants will be asked to provide additional details about their innovation project before final selection. The ceremony will occur 23 October 2014 at the Brussels innovation centre Living Tomorrow. Registrations to attend this public event are open.
The IPACSO project is part of the European Union’s research and innovation program, Horizon 2020. Alongside LSEC, VASCO Data Security, the Waterford Institute of Technology and Espion, both from Ireland, and the German Institute for Economic Research make up the rest of IPACSO. The project runs until October 2015.
