The reunion is the consequence of the Political Agreement of December regarding the Centre for competences and the network in the domain of cyber security, an initiative which aims at improving the technological and industrial capacities in matters of cyber security of the  EU and to contribute a safe online environment.


The competence centre that will have the headquarters in Bucharest will contribute together with the Network of national centres for coordination, the consolidation of the European capacities in matters of cyber security, as well as the stimulation of excellence in research and competitiveness of the industry of the Union in this domain.

It is understood that the European Centre for competences and the European network in cyber security will be launched officially in June, under the reserve of the official approval by the European Parliament and the EU Council.
