£6.5 million CyberInvest scheme to boost world-class UK cyber security research
GCHQ and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport have launched CyberInvest, a new £6.5m industry and Government scheme to support cutting edge cyber security research and protect the UK in cyber space.
The scheme enables industry to draw upon the expertise of GCHQ, EPSRC and leading academics, and invest in the strategically important research areas critical to protecting the UK.
Launched at IA15, the Government’s high-profile information assurance event, CyberInvest will build a community of industry, government and academia who are committed to sustained investment in cyber security research.
Whilst many companies invest in research, some find it difficult to target the right opportunities, and where investment is made, it is not always visible or focused. CyberInvest will provide a forum for the latest in cyber security research, drawing upon the expertise of GCHQ, leading academics and industry.
