The chapter and the Office for the Promotion of the European Funding Programs (GPPQ) organized the seminar “Opportunities H2020 in Cyber Security” in October in the Hall of Presidents of AIP-CCI. This forum was intended to make known funding opportunities in 2016 and 2017 for the program Horizon 2020 in the field of cybersecurity. The event was attended by a large number of chapter members and parties potentially interested in research and development activities in cybersecurity. Speaking during the first part of the program were Alexandre Marques and Fernando Carvalho of the GPPQ and Rodrigo Mendes from the European Union, who addressed these questions: What is the Programe H2020? What is the participation of Portugal in the H2020? What are the H2020 lines of action for 2016-17 in the area of cybersecurity?
