(postponed from 22-23 April 2020)


Building on the success of the first EaPConnect CyberSecurity Workshop, which took place in Berlin on 27-28 June 2018, this second event will take a more technical approach. Workshop is organized by the EaPConnect project in cooperation with GEANT and CyberEDU project. Experts from EU, EaP countries and USA will share their experience and best practices in CyberSecurity and invite to discuss and explore the topics and opportunities in more depth.

CyberSecurity is of vital importance in today's globalized world and hence for the Eastern Partnership countries. Discussions will circle around what is needed especially for the EaP region and how people from EaP organisations could get more involved in European R&D in CyberSecurity. This workshop is open for people with a relevant technical background, working in the area of CyberSecurity.
