The Research Executive Agency (REA), the funding body for research and innovation that manages EU research grants, on November 30th, 2017, organized the REA.B.4 Science Conference in Brussels, titled “Addressing Cybersecurity challenges and REA's role therein”. The topics discussed included the policies that need to be enforced to protect European Citizens’ personal details online, whether cybercrime will halt the growth of the digital world and how cybersecurity research can help fight against it.

In the above context, four invited speakers presented the current policy landscape and demonstrated how some of the cybersecurity challenges we face are being addressed by innovative B.4 research projects. Being one of speakers, our project coordinator, Prof. Christos Xenakis from UPRC, was given the exciting opportunity to explain how the research results from ReCRED can have a tangible effect, making our lives safer and our information more secure.
