The University of Manchester has contributed to a European Regional Development Funding bid in Collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Salford and Lancaster University.
The Cyber Foundry project aims to drive economic growth and productivity in small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) through the application of cyber security research and Innovation to a range of business products and services. Key reports have shown the demand for cyber security provision in the market place and the need to demonstrate cyber competency to gain access to, and operate in supply chains. Often business owners are unaware of the potential business benefits of engaging with cyber security innovation. Through raising awareness and supporting business strategy development this project will unlock the economic potential of cyber security in the Greater Manchester area.
