"By establishing a new Danish hub with a focus on cyber security, the ambition is to bring together the many good initiatives that exists around Denmark, so that we get shared experiences and created synergies across actors in the field and create an ecosystem that contributes to the development of innovative cyber solutions, ”says Tim Sloth Jørgensen, program manager for The Danish Industry Foundation’s special efforts in cyber security.

The goal is to strengthen the competetiveness of the industry and create innovative and safe products in the companies through collaboration between research, innovation and teaching.
