[Other] Erasmus+ grant for the SecTech project

The Erasmus+ project “Innovation and Excellence in Cyber-security teaching in Higher Education (SecTech)” has been granted for funding by EU. NTNU participates in this project with Prof. Danilo Gligoroski and Prof. Sokratis Katsikas from the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology (IIK).

About the project:
The SecTech project is a project between 7 European universities: Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (coordinator), University of Oulu - Finland, University of Regensburg - Germany, Katholike Universiteit Leuven - Belgium, Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Norway, University of Plymouth - UK, and University of Vienna - Austria.
The activities of this project will revolve around the fulfilment of the following objectives:

  • Jointly develop Cyber-Security related teaching and training materials at Masters and PhD level.
  • Create within each partner institution, a centre for cyber-security teaching and awareness competences with curriculum encompassing area of expertise of each partner institution.
  • Support decision makers in the area of higher education with a set of recommendation on how to improve the quality of teaching in cyber-security.
  • Adopt an online collaborative and interactive tool for delivering the courses to remote students.
