COINS - Research School of Computer and Information Security

Tildelt: kr 12,8 mill.

COINS integrerer norske forskningsgrupper i informasjonssikkerhet til en større enhet, f.eks. ved å gi lettere adgang til emneporteføljen for doktorstudenter ved konsortiedeltagerne. COINS bygger sterkere relasjoner mellom doktorstudenter i nettverket, etablerer flere incentiver å prestere og styrker mobiliteten til studenter ved å gi tilgang på et større nettverk. COINS styrker også mobiliteten til studenter internasjonalt, er vert for internasjonalt anerkjente forskere og byr på "ubegrenset flyt av varer og tjenester" innenfor forskning på informasjonssikkerhet i Norge.

Forskningsrådet recently concluded in its evaluation of Research in Information and Communication Technology in Norway: "What the panel perceives as an insufficient national research focus in such areas as cyber security poses potential real threats to th e security of Norway ... As an area of national importance, it is recommended that Norway consider initiating a strategic effort to increase national competence in cyber security." This application for a research school of Computer and Information Securi ty - COINS - addresses this need. The consortium assembles most academic research institutions in information security in Norway, augmented by industrial and international academic partners. Prominent tasks of the research school are to be shared training efforts through annual winter and summer schools in information security, practical security competitions, a Ph.D. student community building seminar, increased student mobility within the Nordic countries and internationally, exposure to renowned guest researchers. As well, a tighter integration of researcher education in small research groups will be pursued by drawing on offerings related to larger research groups in computer and information security. Ph.D. training is the third cycle of the Bologna process and the first phase of an early-stage researcher's career. It constitutes the main link between the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area. Doctoral training needs to become better structured, more robust, closer coordinated with industry, and better marketed domestically and abroad. An important instrument in achieving these goals is the development of a "vertical" research school, focusing on the scientific benefits a collaboration within the field of information security can bring. More than 110 students will benefit.
