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. The ECHO consortium consists of 30 partners from different fields and sectors including health, transport, manufacturing, ICT, education, research, telecom, energy, space, healthcare, defence & civil protection.

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.

Among others, ECHO will deliver the following systems:

  • 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.
