Purpose and goal
Secana´s project objectives were to - collect and internally disseminate experiences from the conference Cybertech Israel and a number of industrial and university visits, - establish personal and organizational contacts, - channel new ideas and create opportunities for new business collaboration in digital security and infrastructure. The project objectives have been met to a great extent, and the results will be used for the company´s continued future work on building and expanding networks and collaborations in the cyber domain.
Expected results and effects
Secana is the coordinator of a Vinnova-funded project linked to digital security and the travel grant provided a good opportunity to create added value for the project. The visit was a real door opener for collaboration with the Israeli industry and academia. The openness of our contacts was striking and we noted a strong desire from companies, academia, private and governmental organizations to deepen cooperation with Sweden.
Planned approach and implementation
In the cyber domain, the close cooperation between the military and civilian Israeli society has achieved great success. Secana proposes a government initiative to map the possibilities for further information exchange and cooperation between Sweden and Israel in digital security. The initiative can consist of a working group that investigates the possibilities for an exchange with Israel regarding national competence buildup in the cyber area. Vinnova, with its excellent contacts with Israeli institutions and companies, can play a crucial role in such cooperation.
