Description:

Horizon Europe is the ninth European Research and Innovation Framework programme (2021-2027). In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is one of the key instruments of the European Union's efforts to steer and accelerate Europe's recovery, preparedness and resilience. In the context of a new European Research Area for research and innovation, it aims to strengthen Europe's knowledge base through frontier research, spur breakthrough innovation and support the development and demonstration of innovative solutions, and help restore industrial leadership and open strategic autonomy.

Activity under Horizon Europe is primarily organised under three 'pillars':

Pillar I - Excellent Science

Pillar II - Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness

Pillar III - Innovative Europe

As part of Pillar II, the EU has identified six clusters to help accelerate and steer Europe's digital and green transitions:

Cluster 1 - Health

Cluster 2 - Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society

Cluster 3 - Civil Security for Society

Cluster 4 - Digital, Industry and Space

Cluster 5 - Climate, Energy and Mobility

Cluster 6 - Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

This report covers research funding support available under Cluster 3 - Civil Security for Society.

Aim

The Civil Security for Society cluster will contribute to establishing, deploying and stewarding resilient critical digital and physical infrastructure, both private and public.

Strengthened European cybersecurity industrial capacities and the uptake of architectural principles of 'security-by-design' and 'privacy-by-design' in digital technologies will create increased open strategic autonomy and competitive edge and leadership in global markets vis-à-vis foreign technologies. Another expected contribution will be to defend the EU's high standards concerning the right to privacy, protection of personal data, and the protection of other fundamental rights in the digital age on the global stage.

Investments in research and innovation made to enhance cybersecurity under Cluster 3 will also contribute to the resilience of the digital infrastructures and their ability to supply and provide services, as well as the security and safety of all producers and users.
