Demonstrators addressing cyber security challenges in the Internet of Things - Competition briefing events

Posted on: 21/02/2019

Up to £6 million is on offer to fund a number of cyber security/IoT R&D projects.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is now an everyday part of our lives, but with all its benefits comes greater cyber security risks and threats.

Innovate UK and UK Research and Innovation are launching the first round of calls for business-led demonstrators addressing cyber security challenges in the Internet of Things in three different scenarios:

  • Operational resilience technologies for the protection and recovery of data in IoT;
  • Intelligent control systems for industry, and commercial and public sector buildings to ensure critical systems function as they were designed
  • Intelligently protecting the occupants and the systems of the digital home.

Competition briefing events

Come along to a briefing event to hear more about the aims and objectives of the call, and more details on the scope, eligibility and how to apply.

Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The event on 26th February will be recorded. A networking session will follow each briefing session and lunch.

This competition is part of a wider programme run in conjunction with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Centre (EPSRC) call, found here.
