CYCLOPES project has been launched
We are happy to inform that CYCLOPES project, coordinated by PPHS, was endorsed by European Commission and is granted. The proposal was submitted in August 2020 in response to GM-01-2020.
The CYCLOPES project is 5 years European network of practitioners fighting cybercrime. The network, in addition to identifying capability gaps and requirements and sharing best practices, will focus on the ongoing dialogue with industries and academia who are delivering products and conducting research on solutions that help fight cybercrime. The consistent cooperation between LEAs, industry and academia will not only improve the possibilities of practitioners fighting cybercrime but will contribute to the development of European markets. The consortium consists of 21 partners from 14 countries.
More information about the project can be found here.
On 18 May 2021 from 9 Project’s Kick-off meeting took place.
