SPARTA: re-imagining the way cybersecurity research, innovation, and training are performed in Europe

SPARTA is a novel Cybersecurity Competence Network, supported by Europe’s H2020.

Cybersecurity is an urgent and major societal challenge. Highly correlated with the digitalization of our societies, cyber-threats have an increasing impact on our lives. It is therefore essential to ensure security and sovereignty in our societies by strengthening leading cybersecurity capabilities. This will require the coordination of Europe’s best competences, towards common research and innovation goals.

Therefore any security compromise of a CPS system could have profound consequences.
