Cybersecurity is becoming more and more important in Horizon 2020. This is evidenced by a contractual Public-Private-Partnership (cPPP) that has been signed by the European Commission and the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) in July 2016. The cPPP will trigger up to €1.8 billion of investment by 2020 and is crucial for topics on cybersecurity in Horizon 2020.
