Brussels candidate to host the future European Cybersecurity Centre
Belgium officially submitted its application to the European Union last week to host the future European Cyber Security Competence Centre. It is in the Brussels Region, more precisely in Evere, that this centre could be established.
The European Union (EU), a major research centre in the cybersecurity sector, is lagging behind in launching cybersecurity products and services on the market, due to a highly fragmented universe. It has therefore decided to join forces at European level to create a centre to coordinate all European players in this field. The European Cybersecurity Competence Center (ECCC) will be endowed with €2.8 billion for its installation and €2 billion for its development, taken from the funds of Horizon Europe and Digital Europe for 2021-2028.
