About Cyprus Cybercrime Center of Excellence
The Cyprus Cybercrime Center of Excellence is co-funded by the Prevention of and Fight against Crime Programme of the European Union. It is coordinated by the Cyprus Neuroscience & Technology Institute with the Office of the Commissioner of Electronic Communications and Postal Regulation, the European University Cyprus, Aditess and the Office for Combating Cybercrime as partners.
3CE will provide short-term, highly focused and specialised training seminars on cybercrime-related issues for public and private sector participants. Courses will facilitate the exchange and diffusion of tacit knowledge and expertise and familiarise participants with new technologies and tools, and improve their day-to-day activities related to the Cybercrime area. University courses on Cybercrime developed and delivered to stakeholders will provide better understanding of the legal and technical elements of cybercrime for new generation scientists. Courses will be made available under creative commons licensing terms for LEAs worldwide. 3CE aspires to become an exemplary Centre of Excellence in the area of Cybercrime by conducting research in relevant fields, focusing particularly on areas dealing with forensic analysis, intrusion detection systems of critical information infrastructures, and legal aspects of cybercrime. Leveraging existing collaborations with third countries (Lebanon, Armenia, Georgia, West Bank Gaza), and membership in CCI, 3CE aspires to serve more globally. Even though such collaborations will take place after the project's official completion, such actions and synergies will ensure the sustainability and continuous advancement of the Centre spreading its impact not only across Europe but more globally.
