With a pragmatic approach, will be clustering cybersecurity projects and developing a catalogue of services around cybersecurity and privacy, with the inclusion of an "end-users' club" to ensure that the perspectives and interests of SMEs are properly taken account of. The project will also establish an EU-wide “Cybersecurity & Privacy Ecosystem” which includes a marketplace, to maximise thematic synergies between H2020, EU and national efforts in the area of cybersecurity R&I, stated within the objectives set by the DS-05 2016 call, directly impacting all relevant stakeholders which is aimed at streamlining otherwise independent efforts, thus exploiting and valuing the richness of different approaches.
