Eurotux is a member of the “Cyberactioning – Training Cybersecurity Skills through Advanced Higher Education Joint Programmes” project
Eurotux is participating in Cyberactioning – Training Cybersecurity Skills through Advanced Higher Education Joint Programmes, a European project in consortium with several European universities and companies called Arqus, with special focus on the area of cybersecurity. It will be coordinated by the University of Granada over 4 years. The European University Alliance, (Arqus) celebrates the approval of the presented proposal: “Cyberactioning – Training Cybersecurity Skills through Advanced Higher Education Joint Programmes”.
This project was created by Granada University, Minho University, Padua University and Vilnius University in cooperation with SMEs and Research Centers such as Constella Intelligence – Securiq Sistemas, Digitalsign, Amped SRL, Qascom SRL, Fundacion IMDEA Network and, of course, Eurotux. The project represents a common investment of almost 3 million Euros.
Its main goal is to promote specialized education programs or modules in key skill areas. Arqus also foresees the creation of a Joint European Master in Cybersecurity, with a mobility path throughout the four universities, and a massive open online course (MOOC) in cybersecurity with the goal of training a minimum of 800 students from non-ICT sectors in each edition.
Among the main results and expectations we can find the creation of a scholarship program to attract highly qualified students; a program of agreements and incentives to attract teachers, companies and research centers and generate synergies; and the acquisition of essential technological infrastructures to support the programs.
