Opening of the Twente University CENTRE for Cybersecurity Research

The Twente University Centre for Cybersecurity Research (TUCCR) is a brand new public-private partnership where experts, professionals, entrepreneurs, researchers, and students from industry and knowledge partners collaborate to deliver talents, innovations, and know-how in the domain of cybersecurity. We want to strengthen the security and digital sovereignty of our society by performing top-level research on real-world data and network security challenges. Key outputs include innovation in the shape of technologies, tools, minimum viable products, start-ups, top-tier scientific publications as well as first-class graduates at Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. level.

On the 5th of March 2021, from 4 - 5 PM, the virtual opening of the Twente University Centre for Cybersecurity Research (TUCCR) will take place. We invite you to join this official moment of celebration.
