Cybercampus - fastest way to cybersecurity?
Cybercampus Sweden will carry out cybersecurity research, education and innovation, to go beyond what is possible for an individual organisation.
The mission for Cybercampus Sweden is to carry out agile and cutting-edge cybersecurity research, education, and innovation vital for a resilient Sweden, and to go beyond what is possible for an individual university, institute, agency, or company.
Cybercampus Sweden is a national initiative founded by KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH), RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and the Swedish Armed Forces. It is supported by and includes several other industry and academia actors. All Swedish universities and other organizations are welcome to become a part of the journey.
Vinnova is currently funding a pre-study to prepare for the campus launch. The objectives for the Cybercampus Sweden are:
- Cybercampus Sweden plans to identify, execute, and coordinate cross-university research on topics important for Swedish civil and military cyber defence as well as industrial competitiveness.
- Within education, Cybercampus Sweden aims to build capacity for cyber workforce training and to facilitate new cross-university cybersecurity programs, taking advantage of the specific teaching expertise from different universities.
- Cybercampus Sweden will be a workplace for academia and agencies as well as for the industry. It will form a strong cyber innovation environment in Sweden in combination with coordinated educational programmes and research initiatives.
- Cybercampus Sweden aims to establish a national research infrastructure for cybersecurity. The infrastructure will provide synergies with existing research and innovation facilities such as CRATE at the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) and the RISE Cyber Range.
- Cybercampus Sweden will boost international visibility for Swedish researchers and innovators. It will also have the required expertise to apply for and lead projects within EU programmes on digitalization and cybersecurity, that normally are out of reach for small research groups in universities.
