New EU's Horizon 2020 grant

News - 09 March 2021 - Communication

We are pleased to announce that the project "artificial Intelligence threat Reporting and Incident response System” (IRIS) has been recently granted under the EU's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. From a technical perspective, IRIS will aim to deploy autonomous detection of IoT and AI threats, enriched with privacy-aware intelligence sharing and collaboration, and advanced data protection and accountability. The project will be validated in three pilot demonstrators, focussing in the IoT, AI and cross-border dimensions, across three existing smart city environments (in Helsinki, Tallinn and Barcelona), involving the associated national/governmental CERTs/CSIRTs, cybersecurity authorities and municipalities. TU Delft will contribute its cybersecurity expertise and experience to the project as one of the main technical partners. Specifically, Dr. Kaitai Liang will lead the consortium on the development of advanced self-encryption, secret sharing and smart contract techniques to provide real-time collaborative ledger-based data protection, recovery and sharing. We can’t wait to start the project and deliver real-world cybersecurity impact to the EU.
