ICU has joined the Inter-University Consortium on European Cyberdiplomacy (CYDIPLO)

Update: October 23, 2020

The International Christian University (ICU) is now a member of CYDIPLO (European Cyberdiplomacy), a consortium of European and Asia Pacific universities to further research and teach cyber diplomacy and internationalise existing cyber security teaching and research programmes. The consortium is funded by the European Union through a Jean Monnet Network (2020-2023), part of the Erasmus+ program. Other members of the consortium are the Universite libre de Bruxelles, University of Warwick, University of Leiden, University of Bologna, Tallinn University of technology, and University of Waikato. At ICU, the project is headed by Profs. Wilhelm Vosse and Herman Salton (Department of Politics and International Studies).

CYDIPLO key objectives are to (1) foster innovative research on cyberdiplomacy and build expertise among young researchers and teachers on cyber security within the EU, Europe and with its strategic partners, to (2) professionalise cyberdiplomacy by developing and embedding graduate and professional training programmes within the EU, and creating teaching and learning materials and modules for emerging cyber diplomats, and to (3) combine academic and practitioner perspectives on cyberdiplomacy through stakeholder events in global cyberdiplomacy hubs. Ultimately, CYDIPLO will create a sustainable network of both EU and non-EU partners.
