Funded under the European Commission's H2020 programme, this brand-new project will contribute to making the Digital Single Market a safer place by promoting the uptake and understanding of cutting-edge cybersecurity and privacy services which emerge from Research and Innovation initiatives across Europe.

First to benefit are SMEs who will have unlimited access to project information and also to a Marketplace of new services to help improve their cybersecurity offering.
In its four-year lifetime, Cyberwatching.eu will also play a key role in policy discussions.
