Summary:

Legislative initiative published by the European Commission on 12 September 2018, which aims to set up a European Cyber-security Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre  and a Network of National Coordination Centres.

Further information:

In view of further developing the cyber security landscape, the European Commission and the High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy presented in September 2017 a Joint Communication aimed at further reinforcing the European Union's resilience, deterrence and response to cyber-attacks. The Communication recognises as a strategic interest to retain and develop essential cyber-security technological capacities to secure its Digital Single Market (DSM).

In such context, this proposal aims to develop a made-for-purpose cooperation model by which the Competence Centre facilitates and helps coordinate the work of the Network and nurture the cyber-security competence community, driving the agenda and facilitating access to expertise. The Competence Centre is also to implement parts of the Digital Europe and Horizon Europe programmes by allocating grants and carrying out procurements. The proposal also requires Member States to contribute a commensurate amount to the actions of the Competence Centre and Network.

The initiative was adopted by the European Commission on 12 September 2018. The European Parliament's position was adopted in March 2019 and later confirmed by a new parliamentary configuration. The Council of the European Union (Coreper level) reached an agreement on its position on 3 June 2020.
