The European Commission has, under the H2020 Program, brought together specialist expertise to form four pilot projects with the objective of connecting and sharing knowledge across multiple domains to develop a common cybersecurity strategy for Europe. ECHO (the European network of Cybersecurity centres and competence Hub for innovation and Operations) is one of these four projects



ECHO intends to raise awareness of the need for cybersecurity amongst EU citizens and better-inform them of potential threats and best practises. The project will also provide innovative solutions to Governmental cyber issues, aid detection of cyberattacks, better combat them and improve response times in order to reduce their impact and ensure the safety of democratic decision-making. Industry will be educated on why and how to protect themselves and their customers against potential loss of data or money, helping to consolidate their reputation and position in the market.

The main objective of ECHO is to strengthen the proactive cyber defence of the European Union, enhancing Europe’s technological sovereignty through effective and efficient multi-sector and multi-domain collaboration. The project will develop a European Cybersecurity ecosystem, to support secure cooperation and development of the European market, as well as to protect the citizens of the European Union against cyber threats and incidents.


Develop sector-specific and inter-sector demonstration cases for improving security measures within and among organizations. The testing and validation of innovative technologies, operational and decision-making processes enables the identification, specification and development of inter-sector challenges and opportunities.


The ECHO Early Warning System (E-EWS) – provides a mechanism for partners to share incidents, trends and other relevant cybersecurity data to trusted partners within the network of cybersecurity competence centres;

The ECHO Federated Cyber Range (E-FCR) – provides realistic environments for conducting experimentation, exercises, research and prototype testing, enables the combination of multiple scenarios from different content providers, and a focus point for training and expertise.
