Background of IPACSO Innovation Services:

IPACSO started out as a project, supported by the European Commission under the FP7 Program. One of the major outcomes of the project was a knowledge and decision- support framework that helps security companies and researchers to identify, assess and exploit market opportunities in the Cyber Security & Privacy Domains. Building on the Framework and expertise of the project partners, IPACSO developed a series of services and activities, supporting innovators and extending to other innovation stakeholders during the course of the project. The project formally ended October 2015. But the activities are continued on a community - basis, led by LSEC - Leaders in Security. LSEC is one of the Founding Partners of IPACSO; a non profit cyber security cluster that was founded by the KU Leuven, to support innovation and strengthen the competitiveness of the European Security Market.
