- Project name: Cybersecurity and privacy dialogue between Europe and Japan (EUNITY)
- Website: https://www.eunity-project.eu/en/
- Source of funding: European Commission (Horyzont2020)
- Project goal: 1. Encourage, facilitate and support the ICT dialogue between relevant EU and Japanese stakeholders on matters relating to cybersecurity and privacy R&I trends and challenges
2. Identify potential opportunities for future cooperation between European and Japanese R&I ecosystems and policy makers by identifying and mapping the relevant legislation, policies and cybersecurity agendas, roadmaps and timelines at the EU level (NIS platform, cybersecurity cPPP) and at the National level, as well as in Japan, clearly identifying and prioritising the joint topics in a proposed EU-Japan Cybersecurity and Privacy Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (EUJ-C&P-SRIA) and ensuring that the collected information is made widely available through modern communication means.
3. Foster and promote European cybersecurity innovation activities and increase the international visibility of EU activities in cybersecurity, by showcasing important results of projects and including key European research actors (companies and researchers) in the project’s workshops.
EUNITY aims to encourage, facilitate and develop the dialogue between Europe and Japan on cybersecurity and privacy research and innovation trends and challenges, in order to foster and promote cybersecurity activities in both regions.
Organizing three workshops in Tokyo, Brussels and Kyoto, which allowed for establishing cooperation and obtaining information from over 100 specialists and experts representing industry, government and scientific institutions as well as representatives of the incident response teams (CSIRT), mainly from Japan but also Europe; Establishing cooperation with:
- European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO),
- European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA),
- European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), etc.
- Report on activity analysis in the field of cybersecurity in two regions
- Creating an analysis of discrepancies and shortcomings in the JP and EU side as well as future challenges
- Creating an EU-Japan Cybersecurity and Privacy Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda
