Scheme to recognise Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research

Briefing meeting date: 15 November 2011

The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and EPSRC intend to set up a scheme to recognise UK Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACEs-CSR). Although the scheme will initially be run by GCHQ and EPSRC, our vision is that it will achieve support across government and business.

Applications should be emailed to cybersecurity by 16:00 on 16 December 2011. They will be assessed by a panel which will include representatives from EPSRC, GCHQ, government, business and academia.

A briefing meeting is planned for potential applicants on the afternoon of 15 November 2011 at the Institute of Physics in London. Please email cybersecurity by 8 November to register intent to attend.
