Our Ecosystem

With EU Regulation 2021/887, the European Parliament and the European Council have decided to establish a European Cybersecurity Competence Center for Industry, Technology and Research in Bucharest. In addition, a network of national coordination centers will be established in all member states. This is intended to strengthen the pooling of investments in research, technology and industrial development in the field of cyber security in the European Union, particularly through the Horizon Europe and Digital Europe funding programs.


The European Cybersecurity Competence Centre for Industry, Technology and Research (ECCC) is to carry out research and innovation measures (supported by Horizon Europe) and capacity building measures (supported by Digital Europe) on its own responsibility and also contribute its expertise to the planning of other programs (e.g. European Defence Fund) in an advisory capacity in order to avoid duplication.

Together with the network of national coordination centers (NKCS, or NCC), the cyber security community is to be comprehensively addressed and involved. The interests of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups in particular are to be taken into account in these activities. The BSI will act as a single point of contact for the competence center, the European network of national coordination centers and the cyber security community.

The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, ENISA, provides strategic advice under the ECCC Regulation and acts as a permanent observer on the Management Board, actively participating in the activities, collaborating, ensuring synergies and providing relevant input in the preparation of the agenda, work programs and the multi-annual work program.
