L-3 TRL Technology continues excellent innovation growth with new initiative: ‘CyberInvest’

 

 
 

L-3 TRL Technology has proudly become a founder member of the CyberInvest initiative. This will further develop its outstanding approach and engagement for superior innovation and research within the wider cyber security community.

GCHQ and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport have launched CyberInvest, a new £6.5m industry and Government scheme to support cutting edge cyber security research and protect the UK in cyber space.  The scheme enables industry to draw upon the expertise of GCHQ, EPSRC and leading academics, and to invest in the strategically important research areas critical to protecting the UK. 

Launched at IA15, the Government’s high-profile information assurance event, CyberInvest will build a community committed to sustaining investment in cyber security research. Whilst many companies invest in research, it is often difficult to target the right opportunities, and where investment is made, it is not always visible or focused. CyberInvest will provide a forum for the latest in cyber security research, drawing upon the expertise of GCHQ, leading academics and industry.

L-3 TRL already undertakes significant innovation and research activities with a number of leading universities, industry partners, HMG, and is part of the UK Cyber Growth Partnership. This will both strengthen and further develop the ability to deliver advanced cyber security initiatives, enabling L-3 TRL to contribute to the UK’s ability to defend itself against the ever increasing cyber threat.
