The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity has issued our fourth annual Request for Proposals (RFP), through which UC Berkeley-affiliated researchers can apply for research funding. Grants will be given in two categories: Seed Grants, generally $15,000 and below, and Discrete Project Grants, up to $100,000. Proposals are due on Monday, October 29, 2018 by 11:59pm PDT.
The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity produced a series of scenarios for the year 2020 to highlight key issues that cybersecurity professionals and policymakers should consider to better prepare for the future. Topics include predictive algorithms, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and more.
In 2018, CLTC awarded more than $1 million in research grants to 37 different groups, whose work addresses such important issues as improving the cybersecurity of local governments, protecting vulnerable organizations from state surveillance, defending against social engineering attacks, developing secure contracts through blockchain, and more.
