On the 13th October, the interactive matchmaking event ‘Interreg Europe CYBER: Paving Europe’s Digital Future’ will take place virtually, offering you a chance to engage with a variety of regional cybersecurity initiatives that have been successfully implemented and significantly improved the respective cybersecurity ecosystems. The event will be giving visibility to the CYBER project partners’ regional cybersecurity initiatives. Interested stakeholders will have a unique chance to meet CYBER project partners and learn about their good practices and policy experiences at the matchmaking event.

Through this event, we hope to inspire our audience members to replicate and adapt good practices and policy experiences in their regional ecosystems. Ultimately, we seek to communicate the CYBER project’s achievements in order to contribute to the consolidation of the fragmented European cybersecurity market.

We are also proud to be part of the European Cyber Security Month and the European Week of Regions and Cities.

Register to learn first-hand about the experiences of CYBER Project Partners. Discover how to adapt good practices and policy experiences to your own regional ecosystems.

We look forward to seeing you then!
