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 3 in 2013.
A third invitation to UK universities, who would like to be recognised as Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACEs-CSR), has been issued by EPSRC on behalf of partners across the UK Government, including GCHQ.
This is the third and final call in the initial phase of this scheme. Successful universities 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.
