 Please share this with possibly interested people within or outside your organisation.

 This event shows emerging challenges within the domain of cybersecurity and privacy that bootstrapped concrete research collaborations between academia and industry. The collaborations occur within the scope of various technology transfer projects (VELCRO, DASH, RUSTiec and CoAssurance) funded by VLAIO. The event takes place in WATT the Firms in Ghent which is very near to KULeuven technology campus Ghent, where DistriNet researchers participate actively in each of the aforementioned projects.
