The first edition of SPARTA Day, open to the public, has been held on the 18th of February. It gathered more than 120 attendees around high-level speakers from the European Commission, national authorities (ANSSI for FR, DIS for IT), the Luxemburg Ministry of the Economy, the Paris Region, and delegates to the H2020 SU Program Committee. Beyond the strategic and high-level perspectives, this day was the opportunity for SPARTA partners to present their activities and vision for cybersecurity.
The first SPARTA Associates Workshop has been held on the same day as the SPARTA Day. It presented the driving ideas behind making cybersecurity stakeholders participate to the SPARTA Roadmap and benefit from SPARTA results, including platforms and infrastructures. Organizations representing French large companies (ACN) and the clustered regional economy (Systematic) presented their interests and motivations to support SPARTA. Thank you to CNR for having organized the workshop and to TUM for its involvement in the roadmap-related activities there.
The SPARTA Meeting, open to SPARTA partners only, has allowed many technical and non-technical discussions around the main principles, objectives, activities, and programs of SPARTA after a talk by the European Commission detailing the specifics of the SU-ICT-03 pilots.
