Civil Cybersecurity Research for Digital Sovereignty – Release of the secUnity Roadmap

On 5 February, the secUnity scientists invite you to an evening at the Representation of the State of Hesse to the EU in Brussels. High level representatives of the European IT security policy of ENISA, DG CNECT and the European Parliament will discuss the problem of the sovereign establishment of new technologies from the perspective of IT security research.


Digitalisation brings about disruptive changes for citizens, businesses and the EU as a whole. In the process, it is important not to be depended on the rules and regulations of the mostly non-European market leaders in the IT sector. Considering this, how can the establishment of new technologies be controlled in a sovereign way? These questions are the focus of the panel discussion with Despina Spanou (DG CNECT) und Julia Reda (MdEP) and the secUnity scientists Claudia Eckert (AISEC) und Jörn Müller-Quade (KASTEL).

In addition, the secUnity-roadmap for cyber security research will be officially presented at the event and handed over to ENISA represented by Udo Helmbrecht. Research in cyber security creates the necessary prerequisites for digital sovereignty, and from this perspective, the secUnity-roadmap identifies the most pressing challenges.
