The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) welcomed over 90 delegates from the EU, Norway and Iceland for a day of collaboration and discussion on best practice for governance of the Network and its Working Groups and current and future cybersecurity funding through the Digital Europe Programme at the National Coordination Centres (NCCs) Network meeting earlier this week in Dublin Castle.


This was followed by a two-day meeting of the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre (ECCC) Governing Board on Thursday 27 June and Friday 28 June. The events were jointly organised by the ECCC and the NCSC.



The NCCs Network mission is to boost research excellence and the competitiveness of the Union in the field of cybersecurity. The meeting included updates from the EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) on research and innovation and education activities in the EU, and also allowed NCC members to share updates on activities underway and planned in Member States.


In Ireland, the NCC-IE was established in the NCSC in 2021. Its role includes co-ordinating with industry, academia, research and other stakeholders to develop awareness of, and promote, funding supports available.


This meeting was followed by the 9th meeting of the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre (ECCC) Governing Board on 27 and 28 June.


The ECCC works together with the NCCs to build a strong cyber security community.


Addressing the Governing Board meeting on Thursday, 27 June, Minister of State Smyth highlighted the importance of continued close cooperation and discussions in order to further strengthen ties and cyber resilience.


At the meeting, the board discussed its anti-fraud strategy, its public communications and dissemination strategy and ECCO, the European Cybersecurity Community Support project. The ECCC Governing Board provides strategic orientation and oversees ECCC activities.
