ACEs-CSR

GCHQ and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) have set up a scheme to recognise Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACEs-CSR). A first tranche of 8 UK universities conducting world class research in the field of cyber security were recognised in 2012 and a further three in 2013.
 
Two more universities have recently been recognised as ACE-CSR. They are the University of Kent and the University of Surrey.
 
They will be recognised as an ACE-CSR for a period of two years and will be awarded an EPSRC grant in support of their activities over this period. 
 
The 13 universities recognised as ACEs-CSR so far are:
