EGIDA materializes as the first and only national network of security and privacy technologies formed by technology centres of excellence. The network will approach research in security and privacy technologies from 4 fields, but always with a common objective: the protection of information privacy. Thus, the centres that make up the network consortium will work on 4 technical objectives focused on applied cryptography technologies, digital identity and privacy, security in distributed systems and development of secure information systems to increase confidence in information systems against cyberattacks.
Likewise, another of EGIDA’s goals is the generation of qualified employment in R&D&I. During the 3 years of the network, 80 engineers and researchers will work to align strategies and actions in research and development, attract and retain talent. A joint commitment of 4 technology centres of excellence to be at the forefront of international cybersecurity. In this sense, EGIDA will facilitate the definition of long-term professional careers, will contribute to the specialization of researchers and will promote the international exchange of technological professionals. With all this, the initiative will promote the recruitment and retention of highly qualified national and international talent.
