Analysis of Europe's Cyber Security Capabilities & End User Requirements
The acronym FIRE stands for "Facilitate Industry and Research in Europe". It aims to improve European industrial competitiveness in markets of Trustworthy ICT. It aims to reduce the gap between industry and research by capturing the needs from the European user community and using them to inform the Research Agenda for the Horizon 2020 program of the European Commission. The FIRE FP7 project has been focused on "Industrial & Research Challenges arising from User Requirements in Trustworthy ICT", by collecting end user requirements, an analysis of the research activities and capabilities and matching ict security industry roadmaps. The results of this project have been presented during the annual FIRE Conference in Brussels, October 13rd 2014.

Part of Europe's Cyber Security Strategy: European pilot action against Botnets
The ACDC project runs over 30 months to July 2015. ACDC builds a European Anti Botnet center and Central Cleaning House, and develops a complete set of products and services from detection to prevention. These services are delivered to service providers and end users through national support centers of 8 Member States, interconnected to the ACDC central clearing house. ACDC intends to evolve beyond the end of the project into a sustainable European center for cyber-defence, building on the networked support centers and clearing house deployed during the project and enlarging the cyber-protection scope beyond botnets.
