Eurotux is a member of the “Cyberactioning – Training Cybersecurity Skills through Advanced Higher Education Joint Programmes” project
Eurotux is actively participating in a European project called “Cyberactioning – Training Cybersecurity Skills through Advanced Higher Education Joint Programmes,” collaborating with several European universities and companies under the Arqus consortium. The project, coordinated by the University of Granada, spans four years.
Arqus, the European University Alliance, is delighted to announce the approval of the “Cyberactioning” proposal, which aims to enhance cybersecurity skills through advanced education programs. The consortium consists of Granada University, Minho University, Padua University, and Vilnius University, along with the participation of SMEs and Research Centers such as Constella Intelligence – Securiq Sistemas, Digitalsign, Amped SRL, Qascom SRL, Fundacion IMDEA Network, and Eurotux. The project represents a substantial investment of nearly 3 million Euros.
The project’s primary objective is to develop specialized education programs, and modules focused on key skill areas in Cybersecurity. Arqus plans to establish a Joint European Master’s program in Cybersecurity, offering mobility opportunities across the four universities and a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in Cybersecurity, targeting a minimum of 800 students from non-ICT sectors in each edition. The project aims to achieve several outcomes, including creating a scholarship program to attract highly qualified students, agreements and incentives to engage teachers, companies, and research centres to foster collaborations, and acquiring essential technological infrastructure to support educational programs.
Eurotux is excited to contribute to this collaborative effort, fostering cybersecurity education and skill development in partnership with esteemed institutions and organizations across Europe.
