A new call from EPSRC has been issued, which intends to support collaborations in Cyber Security between the UK and Israel. EPSRC write:
“Israel’s National Cyber Bureau (INCB) and Ministry of Science, Technology and Space (MOST), and the UK’s Cabinet Office (CO) and Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) (from here on ‘the Agencies’) wish to encourage joint research activities in cyber security.
Through a single, shared process which is managed by EPSRC on behalf of the Agencies, we expect to identify and support up to three collaborations, each of which involves leading academic researchers in both the partner countries. While funding for researchers in Israel and UK will ultimately be provided separately by their respective Governments, the key to success in the call will be the identification of a programme of work which is of high scientific quality and truly collaborative.
Proposals for new projects in any area relevant to cyber security, from new or established partnerships, are welcome. We intend to fund a balanced programme of research in which the individual projects can work together to maximise mutual benefit.
Collaborations will need to prepare a single, unified, proposal which describes a full programme of work in both countries. This will be submitted to EPSRC by the UK lead organisation on behalf of the research partners in both the UK and Israel. Projects should last between 25 and 30 months, to start in Spring 2015 and end no later than December 2017.”
