Smart Nation Initiatives
The Consortium is mentioned in The Sunday Times as one of the Smart Nation Initiatives at NUS.
Academics, practitioners and enthusiasts can gather for half-a-day or one day, once every quarter to intensively discuss specific topics in information security. The views and discussions in the talk series are summarized through an annual report to help the Consortium funnel the discussions into translatable action items, such as match-making industry academia partners for possible translation funding applications.
The Consortium organizes an annual Cybersecurity camp with lectures and tutorials from international and local researchers, as well as hands-on sessions via hackathons and mini-competition. The sessions in the camp could capture the topics relevant to the different SIGs.
Industry, government, and academia are invited to make short and impromptu presentations with a lot of room for brainstorming. Participants sharing their ideas on the WACI Day could influence the grant call on challenge problems to be shaped by the Consortium, through which seed grants will be given out.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are set up for various themes in Cybersecurity, with an anchor institution for each theme. The groups meet regularly to discuss ideas and solutions to challenges in the field.
The Consortium drives a periodic grant call on specific Challenge Problems in Security and Privacy, to encourage unconventional ideas which may not often be written up as a research projects, and to do so in a targeted fashion for specific challenge problems identified. This also provides a direct opportunity to member companies to articulate the major gaps in technology which can benefit from further research.
The Consortium invites Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs) to nominate student projects and course projects with translation potential, for a chance to match up with companies. Students and faculty members of identified projects are invited to apply for 12-18 month seed funding.
Members are offered complimentary passes to the annual Cybersecurity Camp, which features lectures and hands-on sessions by prominent international and local researchers.
Members are offered complimentary passes to the Technology Talk Series and the WACI Day, which not only provide technology updates but also serve as a networking platform for companies and provide opportunities for them to tap on expertise in Singapore and worldwide for up-gradation of their Cybersecurity technologies.
Members are invited to articulate their inputs on challenge problems in thematic areas of their interest, thereby potentially influencing the grant call on challenge problems in security and privacy.
Members are invited to partner with seed funded projects awarded by the Consortium, which can help establish relationships between industry and IHL, making a clearer case for their Industry-IHL Partnership (IIP) applications to be considered for funding. Members may be eligible for limited waiver of conditions for eligibility of IIP grants, subject to final approval from NRF.
Members have access to university personnel at reduced overhead, getting the maximum out of their research investment through such partnerships.
Members have access to university students/talent presenting their projects, which may help in hiring and internship purposes.
Members have access to the National Cybersecurity R&D Lab (NCL) for experimentation and hands-on training.
The Consortium could negotiate on behalf of the members for better licensing terms through NRF for non-exclusive licensing of technologies created from the initial set of National Cybersecurity (NCR) projects funded by NRF, as long as such licensing does not violate the terms and conditions of any research collaboration agreements already signed for the corresponding NCR project.
