The European Network for Cyber Security (NECS) addresses the training and development of a European talent pool to help implement and support the European Cyber-security strategy2 as highlighted in the EC’s Digital Agenda.
Today there is a strongest need than ever to grow researchers that combine a strong academic foundation with practical experiences, technological expertise with awareness of the socio-economic and legal context and conviction to furthering research with an entrepreneurial spirit.
The 4-year NECS project for a cyber-security research and training network makes a significant contribution towards meeting the increased demand of human expertise in this critical field. NECS fosters a multi-sector/multi-disciplinary approach that is absolutely necessary for tackling coherently all cyber-security needs as recognized by the Network and Information Security (NIS) platform that has been established by the EU in order to develop a public/private cooperation strategy.
